Upstairs the bedroom has a king-sized double bed and enjoys superb views across the garden, Porlock Vale and beyond. The cottage is situated in outstanding walking country and for the more energetic there are coastal, woodland and moorland walks served by a network of superb paths almost from the door...Coachman's Cottage offers a unique bolthole for couples seeking a peaceful coastal retreat.
