Sparrow’s Nest is situated on the slopes of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and an ideal base for couples, walkers or for peace and quiet. The holiday property is attached to the owners’ home and shares a large garden with the owners and their chickens, and with a view to the Wellington monument. Further afield is the historic town of Wellington, the Blackdown Hills and of course the open expanses of Exmoor. The coasts of west Somerset, north Devon and south Devon, each with their unique features, are also easily accessible on the Devon border with superb views over meadows and woods with cattle and sheep. 1 mile from the Devon border it is easily accessible from Taunton and the M5. There are many opportunities for exploring on foot or by car with footpaths and winding lanes linking into nearby forests and nature reserves. It is idyllically situated yet highly accessible for visiting all the attractions of Somerset and Devon such as Exmoor, Dartmoor, both north and south coasts, numerous National Trust properties and themed visitor attractions. A restful haven to return to after days out if you can drag yourselves away in the first place! Beach 21 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Confirmed guest, 06/08/2021
    Shabby, cluttery, not clean downstairs. Bedroom and bathroom ok. Bed comfy, water pressure not good, tap coming undone in kitchen. Felt insecure due to adjoining door which was locked from the outside with key left in it and owners outer door left unlocked when they were out. No real accessible space despite large owners garden as there were no guidelines as to what was available to us for use

    Response from:

    On Behalf Of The Owner: Responding to your low review you left us . We were very disappointed. We do our utmost to make guests feel welcome. And tell them to knock on our door if they have a problem with anything. The downstairs is neither shabby , cluttered or unclean and how you can justify saying that I don’t know. We have never had that said before and was really petty of you . However we do agree with the water pressure. To rectify this will costs a few thousand which we haven’t got at the moment. How can you feel insecure due to a locked door? . This also indicates you came to our front / back door to try access? When it would be locked if we were not there . And finally the whole garden is for holiday let guests . Which is what we tell people when they arrive and is stated on the description
