Set in an almost secret valley on the edge of Exmoor but only 8 miles from Taunton the Hoccombe valley is the place to unwind. At night the only noises are the hoot of owls the sound of running water from the mill stream and snuffling of nocturnal wildlife. On clear nights as there is no light pollution, the skies are inky black and dotted with a million stars. The cottage itself has the feel of country living whilst retaining the comfort of a modern home - light and airy in the summer -warm and cosy in the winter.
The modern paintings on the walls and the careful design of each room have been put together with an eye for style and comfort. The sitting room has French windows leading out to a terrace and the garden. The Mill house adjacent is the home of the owners who are on site if needed.
Parents of young children should be aware that there is both a river and a pond close to the cottage.

We had a wonderful stay at Louise & David’s cottage for our mini family moon with our 19 month old. Louise made some wonderful bread, cake and jam which really added a personal touch to our stay. The grounds of the house were stunning and we loved taking our little boy to see the chickens and stream. We hope to visit again one day and go for longer walks as the scenery is amazing!

I don't normally do reviews but Louise and David are just brilliant from the minute you arrive to when you are leaving they are just brilliant hosts. If you want peace and tranquility then look no further. The walks on there gardens down to the streams were just wonderful, but you need to experience this yourself to appreciate it. I could say loads but I think a public thank you is the best way. Thanks Louise and David will be back soon. The Wardell family.

You are so kind -we just love it when people 'get' Hoccombe -as we fell under its spell many years ago and think we are just so lucky to live here. The stars are out tonight in full strength, it's a cold crisp clear night -just perfect. Hope to see you again -best regards L & Dxx

If it was possible to award a 6th, bonus star, this cottage along with the warm caring service provided by the hosts, would deserve it, without hesitation. Lovely location, lovely cottage, lovely people.

Louise and David's welcome to their beautiful cottage was incredibly inviting and informative. The cottage itself is beautiful and very well equipped for any length of stay. The countryside it is set in is gorgeous, remote and peaceful, but also close to plenty of attractions and things to do, from exploring Exmoor, going to the beach to sampling the local cider! My little family loved playing in the large garden, wandering down the country lanes, exploring round the pond and chatting to the chickens! We can't recommend Louise and David's cottage enough and would love to spend more time ther in the future.

Incredibly quiet and relaxing little haven tucked away from the hustle and bustle, perfect for a retreat.

Co Director of small Arts related company, retired husband and two sons (29 and 24) a darling chocolate labrador, her new companion a yellow rescue Labrador and some hens and we live in the middle of nowhere - but a very beautiful nowhere!. Need to be in London sometimes - son lives in Hammersmith area but v small flat!
Also now a son at Oxford in Engineering - and the need to pop up occasionally and feed/see him.
Really enjoying hosting in our totally separate holiday cottage, in what we think is the most beautiful valley, where we brought up our boys- we bought it for them and they still love coming home bringing friends in tow. Now we have new friends from all over the world coming to enjoy this hidden magical little piece of Somerset Countryside.
