Situated in the village of Combe St Nicholas and nestling on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, Smithycroft puts you right at the heart of some of the South West’s most beautiful walking country. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts wonderful, rolling scenery, with walks galore across the Somerset and Devon border.

The traditional thatched cottage feels as cosy as it looks, with an inglenook fire place in the sitting room and a breakfast room with french doors leading out onto the enclosed garden. The owners have refurbished the property to include little touches of luxury, like a roll-top bath in the en-suite from the master bedroom, so you enjoy a traditional cottage with all mod cons too.

Large, well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and Freeview television (the Aga is decorative only).

Whether you’re coming away for a family holiday or a romantic break, Smithycroft is the ideal base for exploring a fascinating part of the world. The Jurassic Coast and Lyme Regis are thirty minutes’ drive away, and the splendour of Cheddar Gorge is only a short distance too. When you’ve had your fill of walking and exploring, it’s time to come back to your very own country idyll and enjoy all the delights of a tranquil and beautiful hideaway.
