    “Totally understand the positivity of other reviewers regarding the 'quirky' feel of The Coach House, but - for a family of 5 - the usual bathroom and bedroom set up didn't sadly quite work for us.”

    On arrival the house was very fusty smelling and we had to open upstairs windows and the kitchen door to help freshen things up (bought Fabreeze next day). Spoke to owner regarding this the second day, who was lovely, and explained cleaner had been away, but - when paying such a large amount - feel the initial impression should have been better.

    On arrival the house was very fusty smelling and we had to open upstairs windows and the kitchen door to help freshen things up (bought Fabreeze next day). Spoke to owner regarding this the second day, who was lovely, and explained cleaner had been away, but - when paying such a large amount - feel the initial impression should have been better. Welcome pack appeared to be some milk along with washing up accessories (when some reviews had mentioned scones and cream!) Whilst having pianos and a guitar is undoubtedly quirky we felt the property needed a bit of a revamp. Even the placing of the TV was on a wall where only one chair actually faced it! However, biggest issue was bathrooms. Only one room had a shower (sectioned off with rows of ear-splitting shells on strings!) and the immersion heater couldn't stretch to 5 short showers each morning so some of our boys had to shower at night to allow enough time to reheat overnight, which was a tad frustrating. For smaller groups who love old furniture and can manage a single shower (there is a bath in one bedroom, but it'll use all the hot water) The Coach House is absolutely fine and we absolutely LOVED SOMERSET. Hope the owners will take on board our feedback as with a few changes we'd be back again in the future. Thanks.

    Thank you for your comments which we have indeed taken on board. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. West Somerset is a very special place. We’re sorry your arrival day was a disappointment. it is difficult to completely remove fustiness in a 200 year old historic building, so early in the spring. And the cold weather snap didn’t help. We stopped providing home made scones due to government regulations around allergies. We hope you enjoyed the farmhouse biscuits we provided instead. We also now offer the option to order a freshly made global stew to be delivered for your first evening should that appeal. We’ve not had any prior comments regarding the hot water. It is a tank of finite capacity (permanently switched on), and you were a large party. In our experience the tank takes about 20 minutes to heat up should it be drained. We’re sorry the position of the tv didn’t work for you, especially given the poor weather you experienced! It is a conscious decision to not let the tv dominate the room and instead focus on creating a beautiful space with carefully chosen art and antique furniture as featured in the photos on the website. We hope very much that you will consider booking the Coach House again and hope that you get better weather when you do! Property Owner

About the location

YARDE

Watchet 2 miles; Williton 2 miles; Minehead 8 miles

The quiet hamlet of Yarde is perfectly situated in the foothills of the Exmoor National Park, close to the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and only 2 miles from the west Somerset coast. The area is well served by local shops and pubs, with the attractive West Somerset Railway also passing through, providing a lovely relaxing trip along the coast from the popular seaside resort of Minehead through glorious unspoilt countryside - a treat not to be missed! Within a short drive are the pretty coastal settlements of Watchet, Blue Anchor and Porlock Weir and the South West Coast Path, providing wonderful walking and cycling opportunities for those wanting to admire the incredible coastal views. A visit to the historic village of Dunster, with its yarn market and ancient castle, is also a must. There is so much on offer in this super area for all the family.
