Interaction with guests
We have a key safe on the wall outside the holiday chalet which means that you are free to arrive whenever you like, after the 3.00 p.m. check-in. We are close by and will assist if there is anything you need, but we do respect your privacy and will leave you to your own devices. On the other hand if you would like to come and meet us, then you are more than welcome.

Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Very handy for M5 and Taunton but also accessible to rest of Somerset despite remote setting. Some noise from the nearby main road at peak times but not overly intrusive. Good for quiet walks by the canal and chilling on the decking in the summer evenings overlooking extensive gardens. Elevated position provides some great views of the surrounding countryside. Very...

Management response:

Thank you very much for your lovely and accurate comments about the Woodcroft. I would just like to say to any prospective guests, that once you have arrived, there is a key fob which will remotely open the electric gates from the comfort of your car. We hope this consideration makes arriving and departing the property as easy as possible....

We spent a week here as our son was at a cricket festival in Taunton. It was a great place for us to base ourselves. My elderly parents joined us for some of the week and it was easy for my disabled mum to get around the chalet. We also took our dog with us, who felt very at home....

Spotlessly clean with everything you could need for a family base. Good communication, recommended. Thanks for the cake :-)

About the neighbourhood
The Woodcroft is situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels. Here you can enjoy a wealth of wildlife such as the Cranes recently introduced back into this country and Herons. The Taunton and Bridgwater Canal is a 2 minute walk from the property where you can walk or cycle or visit the tearooms and take a boat trip. The very picturesque village of North Curry is only 5 minutes in the car with a great shop and post office and lovely old pub. The Newt Beer Festival is held every year in the nearby village of North Newton in the grounds of Maunsel House as seen on T.V. Somerset carnivals are unique and a must in the Autumn, with Bridgwater being the largest lit procession in the world. Quite spectacular!
Getting around
We do have a bus stop about 50 yards on the other side of the road, but most of our guests bring a car. The Taunton to Bridgwater canal is a 2 minute walk and includes a cycle path, so great if you want to bring your bikes. The train station is in Taunton which is about 6 miles away. We can provide transport to and from if you wish.
