The ground floor open plan living space welcomes you warmly the moment you step inside. From the curl-up in sofa, the wood-burner, the day bed for those afternoon siestas to the designer kitchen, the rich fabrics to the stylish furnishings - every detail speaks volumes.
Inside or out - whatever the season, even a simple meal will be a delight. The kitchen is beautifully equipped, the dining table by the wood-burner is great for winter suppers with the curtains drawn and the garden great for late breakfasts, long picnics and cocktails in the summer sunlight.
Both bedrooms have super king-sized beds, fabulous white linens and a deep sense of tranquility. The master bedroom has a roll-top bath for two - surround this with candlelight and you cannot help but be drawn into the true spirit of The Quantock Hide, especially when you duck under the eaves and climb in to your silk enshrined sumptuous cocoon of a bed. The second bedroom is very pretty, the super king-sized bed can be separated to make twins and it has an adjacent luxurious shower room.
To bathe or shower? Both are luxurious and set up to make sure that you relax after a day of therapeutic fresh air up in the hills or in the sea air along the coastal path from Kilve Beach - a striking Area of Outstanding Beauty - just a mile down the road.
The landscaped enclosed gardens are split into three distinct 'garden rooms' all of which have breath taking views out to sea and up through the ancient beech tree avenue. The large Zen-styled lower terraces flanked by exotic tropical plants are the perfect spot for alfresco dining.
The Secret Garden with its bubbling hot tub, oversized daybed and uninterrupted views of the magnificent 400 year beech trees that tower above it, make counting sheep as one drifts off, so yesterday - counting leaves and figuring cloud formations is much more on-trend.
Allow nature to nurture in the wild flower terraced gardens. Bird song, views out to sea, the 9,000 Quantock moorland over your shoulder, P & Q is a given. All of the gardens are fully enclosed for four footed family members, and there are even outside hot and cold taps for those muddy little paws or even muddier MTB's.

The vehicle approach to the property is easily navigable but it is steep. There is plenty of parking space, but there are a set of garden steps (17 steps in total) to go down to reach the property.
Up to three dogs are most welcome. Beds, water bowls and biscuits await them.
Due to the fact that The Quantock Hide has been honed (quite literally) from the Quantocks, the upper terraces of the garden have steep banks, so if you have highly mobile small toddlers bring a couple of extendable stair gates.
The property is attached to the east end of the owners private stable yard. The Quantock Hide is very secluded and quiet, but from your bedroom windows (which are on the 2nd floor) you may see the three horses below, taking themselves off down the track to their fields.
Most mobile networks work well here. Wifi works well in the property. All main supermarkets deliver to the cottage
