Hearn Lodge holiday home details

Hearn Lodge plunges you into a rural idyll, with access to twelve acres of wildlife meadows, a stream and pond right from your front door. The property adjoins the owner’s home, Hearn Farm, and has excellent views of its own secluded flower garden, along with an apple tunnel and an adjacent walled garden.

Inside the property, you’ll find a large and well-equipped farmhouse kitchen, a spacious living room and a south-facing conservatory. The sitting room is the perfect place to relax after a day out and about in the fresh air, with a wood burning stove to keep you warm and cosy. The furniture is farmhouse style, with a Welsh dresser and a pew creating a homely feel.

Local pubs provide excellent food and just a short ten minute drive is the large and attractive village of Bishops Lydeard where you will find many shops including a deli and a brewery featuring local produce. Hearn Lodge puts you within easy reach of the Quantock moors, with wild ponies, deer and superb coastal views, as well as the Somerset Levels and Exmoor. When you’re done exploring, relax in the garden on the outdoor furniture.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • You’ll find a walk across the Quantock moors right from the door of Hearn Lodge. A historic drover’s track takes you through combes or valleys, descending steeply through ancient forests and alongside an avenue of magnificent beech trees. The path takes you all the way to the pretty village of East Quantoxhead.
  • Just around the corner from East Quantoxhead is Kilve Beach, with unique rock formations and rock pools. The cliffs are ideal for spotting fossils, although please don’t remove any that you find.
  • The harbour of Watchet isn’t just home to an attractive marina, the location also has a claim to literary fame as the place where Coleridge wrote his poem The Ancient Mariner. You can visit his home in Nether Stowey nearby.
  • The medieval village of Dunster is dominated by the National Trust’s Dunster Castle, with its dramatic vistas and subtropical gardens. You can also catch a steam train here on the West Somerset railway, which takes you along 20 miles of stunning Somerset countryside.
  • The centre of Exmoor is around 40 minutes’ away from Hearn Lodge, where you’ll find moorland stretching all the way to the coast. Picturesque Porlock Weir was once a smugglers’ port, while the pebbled beach at Bossington village was chosen by The Times as one of the UK’s best beaches.
  • If you’d like to learn more about the local area, The Museum of Somerset has plenty of interesting exhibits and artefacts and is just ten miles’ away in Taunton. The town is also home to a theatre and independent restaurants, as well as a cricket ground and racecourse.
