A double en suite room with TV and Wifi. It’s a great budget room for one person comfortably, two is cosy as its a 4ft double bed but the price may make it worth it to you! The room is in a self contained annex to the main house with one other air bnb room sharing a dining area and kitchenette. Breakfast is included. The space is popular for those who want to shower, sleep and go - ideal for cyclists, walkers, for those passing through or staying locally on a budget and especially HPC workers.
My space is aimed at people who want to crash for one or two nights or who want a room as a base for longer. There are two rooms - this being the smaller - both are modern, recently built, clean, and each room has an en-suite, TV and Wifi and a wardrobe. There is a fridge and a microwave in the shared kitchenette. The rooms are designed to be aimed at people who need a clean and comfortable bed, a shower but who aren't requiring an 'experience' like four poster beds or bacon breakfasts.
There is oodles of parking. The rooms are slightly separated from the main house so you can have privacy or interaction - whichever you prefer - but this makes it easy for you to come and go when you wish. We could be like ships that pass in the night as I work out of the village but I am always on the end of the phone if needs be. The rooms operate very much stand alone so I may not be around when you arrive but this is made easy with a key safe and self entry. I try to make a point of saying hello but with my timings and guests’ itineraries we could possibly miss each other too.
Unlimited tea and coffee facilities are in the communal area. There is also a small dining/seating area which is shared with the other room. Breakfast is provided (cereals, yoghurts and toast) but if you prefer there are also cafes both within walking distance or a car drive to beach or hillside cafes. I can advise you of the tried and tested places!
I am in the centre of Williton but tucked away - the size and privacy of the house and garden is always a surprise. The garden is a work in progress and is slowly being tamed but you are welcome to sit out in it should you wish, either with breakfast or a glass of wine. Plenty of space for dogs to run around if you are bringing your fluffy friend with you (£5 fee tba). Cyclists and walkers are very welcome and I am increasing the facilities for these guests each year. The space has been popular with walkers, cyclists, people who crash as a stop off on a long journey to Cornwall, wedding visitors, Watchet Festival visitors and people working locally.
If you are here for work - particularly Hinkley - I am happy to discuss long stay arrangements. I like to give any long stayers value for money if I can and the rooms are ideal for anyone who needs a clean, tidy place to sleep between busy periods of work or cycling or walking etc.
If you need a bank, cafe, fish and chips, groceries, Indian supper, beer, hairdressers, post office, old fashioned iron mongers, country clothing or petrol they are a few minutes walk away. You can take a 15 minute walk to the Quantocks or Exmoor to start your day or take the steam train from the local station to a destination on the line and start there. The Coleridge Way, MacMillan Walk and South West Coast Path, as well as the West Somerset Coast Path are all within nodding distance. The Quantocks are popular with cyclists, there is a Jurassic beach full of fossils within a 5 minute drive and a plethora of places to pique your interest and I am happy to advise on any of these.
If you love the countryside then it is perfect. As well as convenient access to the Quantocks and Exmoor we also have the local beaches. At Doniford, you can not only walk for miles long the beautiful coastline but hunt for fossils. Why not walk to Watchet, enjoy a cafe meal and walk back over the hill? Or swim at Minehead. You can walk or cycle directly onto either the Quantocks or Exmoor from here. There are lots of local interest spots within striking distance, the nearest being Dunster Castle and Coleridge Cottage if you like history. You can explore the coastline or the countryside without being too far away from 'civilisation' or too far a journey away from the M5. Watchet has a marina, popular music venues and pubs. There are several pubs in Williton for food and drink too. The West Somerset Railway has a station in Williton from which you can access the line in both directions.
