CELEBRATIONS & TREATS
If you are looking for that truly special place to celebrate a "big" event, possibly your or your loved one's birthday or even your fur kids birthday (and don't laugh many of our woofie guests have celebrated major life events such as joining the family anniversaries or indeed their "furby-days!") or perhaps a mini-moon or a honeymoon or simply you just want to celebrate being alive and being able to enjoy time out and a much needed break - well look no further our 3 rural luxurious and secluded cottages which are set high up on Somerset's majestic hills, a place where ancient moorland meets wild Jurassic coast are the perfect and dare I say the "pawfect" place...
Our 3 privately owned cottages provide the freedom and privacy of self catering but with the quality, attention to detail and comfort you would expect from a 5* boutique hotel. Each cottage sleeps up to 4 guests in two bedrooms and each has a large private enclosed garden with a private hot tub,
If you were staying in a top hotel you would not be doing the shopping or the cooking and you would expect to be able to have massage and beauty treatments, so why should it be any different if you are staying in a luxury romantic cottage in Somerset - at the Quantock Cottages it isn't, The choice is entirely yours. You may wish to potter around the lovely farm shops. You might want to enjoy cooking together, or you can avail yourself to some or indeed all of the "treats" below - go on you're on holiday you know you want to!
TREATS FOR YOU
In Cottage Spa Treatments
Glo-pamper provide a range of holistic massage and beauty treatments delivered and performed in the comfort of your luxury self-catering cottage. Indulge in a tailor made pampering session which is a perfect for any occasion such as a family get-together, a romantic weekend away or for some much needed "you" time.
Local Day Spas
Maybe you want to leave the boys/girls behind at your cottage and enjoy an indulgent day out at one of the local day spas. Cedar Falls Health Farm & Spa is just on the other side of the Quantocks. It has a large outdoor swimming pool and a small indoor one. They offer both full day and half day packages.
Buff Urban Day Spa in Taunton, comes highly recommended. It has a a hair and beauty centre and it too offers a wide range of day and half day spoiling massage and pampering packages.
Private Chef Experience
"Dineindulge" is a private chef experience that brings a new concept to the idea of hiring a private chef. The aim of their service is to make the booking process from choosing a menu to the arrival of your private chef at your cottage as easy and simple as possible. You simply choose your menu, select your date and they'll bring all the necessary ingredients, cook and serve the food and even clean up afterwards. All you have to do is sit back, maybe enjoy a glass of wine or two, and anticipate the amazing gastronomic experience that’s on the way!
The Ultimate In Decadence
For the ultimate spoiling experience why not take advantage of the newly launched Home Spa & Private Chef Package. Go-Pamper and Dineindulge have partnered so that guests can have a unique and luxurious home spa experience alongside a personal chef with restaurant quality cuisine.
Imagine having a wonderful top to toe pampering session while your private chef busies away in your kitchen cooking up a gastronomic feast. Your chef will not only cook and serve your food but also clear up afterwards -how lovely and spoiling is that!
Luxury Food Boxes
Why not spoil yourself by having a wonderful butcher/fishmongers box delivered to your cottage. Order steaks the size of houses, maybe a fresh lobster tickles your taste buds, or perhaps some lovely fat juicy scallops are calling you. What ever your wish the Somerset Farmhouse Butcher and Deli will be delighted to advise you as to what is in season and will deliver to your cottage.
It should be noted that all supermarkets deliver to the cottages.
Home Produced Cooked Food Delivery
For a more simple, wholesome countryside culinary experience, Amanda of Yellow Door Cottage can provide you with the mouth watering dishes from breakfasts to suppers for just a day or every day of your stay. All you need to do is pop your chosen goodies into the oven to warm through.
At Yellow Door Cottage, everything is about the food and everything is done with love and care. They grow their own veggies and rear their own meat. They do this as naturally as possible, from ‘hand picking’ caterpillars from lettuces to feeding their pigs unwanted apples.
Farm Shop Delivery
Pyne's Of Somerset is the most wonderful traditional farm shop which has a BBQ section, Beers, Wines & Spirits, A bakery, Butchery, Deli, Fishmongers, Greengocer and Pantry. Their produce can be viewed and ordered on line and delivered direct to your cottage. Be sure not to miss their "Pyne's Favorites Meals" we can highly recommend these!!
TEATS FOR THEM
Our local canine hydrotherapy center is awesome, they have an indoor pool and an underwater treadmill. Hydrotherapy does not have to be just for those woofies recovering from injury but it is really useful for youngsters to work of excessive energy in a safe environment, older dogs who don't need more impact on their joints than is necessary and for those who just love swimming in lovely warm water as oppsed to the cold sea or equally cold rivers.
Pet Food Delivery
In order to save you valuable car space the local very good large pet shop can deliver to your cottage your dogs own brand food, together with any toys or holiday treats that your fur kids might require.
Whilst pretty much everywhere in Somerset is dog friendly and this includes the beaches and the pubs there may be an occasion that you would like your furry ones to be walked for you or even if you wanted to go out for a meal without the woofers then Karen (who is a dog trainer) lives in the village and offers walking and sitting services. We have used her extensively and I fear that our dogs love her more than us!
Our resident web designer and photographer Georgina Preston is a professional equine and canine portrait photographer. She can capture your fur kids personality perfectly!

We have just spent the most incredible time here in Somerset at the Quantock Cottages to celebrate my 40th (shhh don't tell anyone) we were expecting comfort and privacy but by goodness our cottage and the area far out exceeded our expectations which were high. The four of us loved it and the woofers are going home for a rest after all the exploring they did where as Dom and I feel rested and so relaxed after what has been a horrible last 12 months. Thank you to you all for making this birthday something that I will always remember.. and yes I know we have booked again for the same time next year so of course I will remember!
Insert Karen, Dom, Michelle, Dave and Lolly, China and Ace the four legged ones.
