The Old Quarry log cabin is set within its own woodland area, close to the stunning Exmoor National Park. A secluded, romantic, almost magical location and yet only half a mile to the small and delightful town of Wiveliscombe. Ideal retreat to relax and unwind within the peace of the natural woodland or use it as a base for a more active Somerset break - there's plenty to see and do in the area.

The space
The Old Quarry enjoys an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space, complete with a wood-burning stove and heating throughout, making it a wonderfully warm and cosy place to stay throughout the year. Set further back, towards the rear of the cabin are three attractive bedrooms, a single, a twin and a double, which share a family bathroom, with modern fixtures and fittings. All the rooms are on the same level (there is a ramp outside to facilitate wheelchair access).

Outside, the veranda is a perfect place to relax on balmy summer evenings or you could try out the hammock. For those slightly chillier evenings, gather around the fire pit to toast some marshmallows whilst you admire the giant redwood tree that towers over the rest of the wood or, gazing even further up, enjoy the brilliance of a starry night. For outside dining, there’s a BBQ area with a wooden picnic table. There is also a swing and grassy area for which we provide a selection of outdoor games.

Guest access
You'll have full use of the property and grounds.

Other things to note
We do offer discounts for weekly bookings when they run Friday-Friday. We do this because we're a small family-run business and it helps us to have a regular changeover day. Please contact us to discuss if this is of interest.

Whilst our cancellation policy is usually "strict", we are making exceptions for cancellations related to COVID-19. If we are unable to host you, we'll offer you a chance to change your dates or make sure you get a full refund, whichever you prefer. If you are unable to travel to stay with us because of COVID restrictions or illness and can provide proof to that effect then we will offer you an opportunity to change dates or we will refund you the amount we have received for your booking (which will be the amount you paid less Airbnb's service fee and the commission that we are charged). You can, therefore, book with confidence.

Location

Wivelscombe, England, United Kingdom

In a recent report, Wiveliscombe was deemed to be the second best place to live in the UK. It's truly a delightful, small town with a strong brewing tradition that still hosts three breweries as well having all the amenities you need for a self-catering stay. Close by, guests are able to make use of Wiveliscombe's all-weather tennis courts and a seasonal open-air heated swimming pool. The town actively encourages walkers to visit and it’s easy to see why, with some great walks right on the doorstep and it’s a popular area for cyclists too. There’s plenty more to do locally. Magical Exmoor is close by in one direction and the Quantock Hills in another and, being in the West Country, the coastline is never far away.

I'm married to Rachel and we have one son. We've travelled a fair bit and lived overseas in Peru for a number of years. We have owned The Old Quarry since 2018 and we love it! It's such a special place that we sometimes have to pinch ourselves and it makes it all the more special being able to share it with others.
