• About Linnets

    Linnets is a rather special property in the heart of rural Somerset. Not only does it have its own private outdoor heated swimming pool, it also caters for guests who may have specific disabled requirements including a mobility scooter. The house is spacious and well-furnished with lots of natural light and does not feel at all clinical. The downstairs is completely laid out for disabled people, (except a hoist), with low level light and plug sockets. The downstairs double bedroom is located next to a spacious wheelchair friendly wet room with emergency alarm, raised toilet, grab rails, low level basin and two heights for shower (including moveable chair). The kitchen has areas with low level worktops, electric hob, sink and microwave set at appropriate levels with a larger main oven above. The large living room is fitted with an induction loop for the hard of hearing, and has wide patio doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with zip and link super king beds which can be made up as twin beds on request, plus an extra single bed.
    The property is semi-detached, adjoining the friendly and very helpful owners’ home, yet it is completely private with its own entrance driveway and parking area and secluded garden with large heated outdoor swimming pool to the rear (9.7m x 4.8m). The pool is open and heated 3rd May to 27th September (on request), there is also a large patio area surrounding the pool and plenty of outdoor seating, garden furniture, hot tub and a summer house with many items for all the family to use including sun loungers, barbecue, numerous games and and swimming equipment.
    The pretty village of Fitzhead has a wonderful inn serving food on a daily basis, about ten minutes walking distance, and there is a play area for children near the village church. The West Somerset Steam Railway is approximately 3 miles away at Bishops Lydeard. Other nearby attractions include Minehead, Blue Anchor, Watchet and Porlock with its famous Weir which is close to the stunning coast and countryside of Exmoor National Park. Also the famous resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth, Valley of the Rocks, Dunster and Dunster Castle, are well worth a visit. While Tropiquaria near Watchet and many more interesting places to visit.

    Pat was on hand to welcome us when we arrived. Very warm reception. She explained the rules regarding use of the excellent pool. The owners live in the adjoining property so were always on hand to offer advice and assistance. There is plenty of room for cars in front of the property that is well back from the small lane. Sat Navs can be problematic so follow the instructions provided by the Agent and it will bring you to the drive. Whilst the pool and excellent garden are to be enjoyed, most local amenities involve a drive. We plan to return in 2018 with our Daughter and our 3 Grandchildren. We are that confident it will provide a great base for all to enjoy. Thank you Pat & David!

    Three generations of my family had an amazing week at Linnetts. From the moment we arrived (4 hours late thanks to the M25) we felt welcomed. Pat had the kettle on and a welcome waiting for us. The house was fantastic my grandsons loved the pool. It's a great location for trips out (the visit to see the steam trains was a winner). When we weren't out and about we were in the pool or chilling in the house. We hope to go back next year for another visit. Amazing :)

    Beautiful setting, so peaceful, though a car is a necessity due to the location of the cottage. The swimming pool is an excellent bonus and the outdoor area is well looked after and thier garden incredibly well-kept. It was helpful having Pat and Dave live next door, they didnt interfere but if anything was needed they were there at the drop of a hat to help. I have stayed in a lot of holiday homes, but here the bedding was superb and squeaky clean which means a lot to me. Overall a great holiday and I would not hesitate to book this property again. - Peter and Family
