Interaction with guests
We are a retired couple, who have lived in Somerset for several years but neither of us come from this area. Steve was brought up in South London, and Edwina comes from West Yorkshire. Now we are retired we spend part of our time in France and part in the UK. When we are away the cottage is cleaned and prepared for new guests by Annie, a local lady. She will provide the welcome pack etc, and normally calls in soon after you arrive, to make sure you have everything you need. Annie knows the village and the area if you need any further information.

About the neighbourhood
Local amenities Milverton is steeped in history; most of the village is encompassed in a conservation area, and many of the houses are listed. The atmosphere in the main streets is reminiscent of a Jane Austin novel. And if you are foodies, you couldn’t be better placed. There is an excellent village shop which sells high class local meat, organic veg, fresh fish, high quality frozen meals from the ‘Cooks’ range and even 13 amp fuses. It’s also an off-licence. Don’t want to cook? The Globe is just 150 yards down the road – a superb local pub which serves award winning food. Less than 10 miles driving from Exmoor National Park in one direction and the Quantock Hills in the other. Marvellous walks in all directions.
Getting around
Milverton is best accessed by car, although there is an hourly bus service from Taunton, which is 8 miles away and has a mainline railway station, and a bus station from which National Express buses operate. Milverton is only 6 miles from the M5, 45 miles from Bristol airport and about 25 miles from the north Somerset coast.
