About Us

Welcome to The Chestnuts

The grounds & surrounding areas

The Chestnuts is situated in a quiet secluded lane just off the main road with no through traffic.

The property is detached with the garden spread over 3 easy accessible levels. The bottom garden has a small fish pond surrounded by trees and shrubs. There is also a small patio with a seating area just outside the Garden Room. The Conservatory is situated just beside the Garden Room and can be used for breakfast/dining for up to 8 people.

The middle garden area is used during the summer months for placing the large double hammock.

The upper part of the garden is where the main seating area is located. The bamboo trees offer privacy and a beautiful backdrop for the gazebo where you can place the patio furniture for outdoor dining.

This area is also perfect for yoga or meditation sessions.

Just outside the upstairs kitchen is where you will find the gas BBQ and patio area.

Beautiful views and more

Weather permitting you can enjoy al fresco dining by the BBQ and watch the sun go down over the Quantock Hills.
