Information on Cottage Holidays in Halse


The Vale of Taunton Deane is on your doorstep and you’re not more than 10 miles away from the Quantock hills and forest, Bagborough hill and the Brendon Hills. The area is also festooned with gardens and houses, open to the public, including Gaulden Manor Gardens, ghost and all, Halsway Manor, these days a seat of English Folk Heritage, Orchard Wyndham and Hestercombe Gardens that takes in 50 acres with lakes, temples, terraces and a kaleidoscope of colour.

Whilst on a self-catering break in or near Halse, you can take a steam train from nearby Bishops Lydeard up to Minehead and spend time at the seaside while enjoying spectacular scenery on the nostalgic journey. Or check out what may be happening at Taunton racecourse just 7 miles away. This course plays hosts to lots of events throughout the year. These include car shows, civil war ‘battles ‘and open air concerts. Its banqueting facilities are superb and the racecourse would be a great place to treat your friends or family to a slap up meal.  If you enjoy visiting historical properties you may want to visit the National Trust’s Fyne Court at Bridgwater or Dunster Castle further afield at Dunster.  

Travelling further afield is no hardship as Halse is close to the A358 Minehead road that will also lead you in to Taunton, the nearest town. Taunton is the county town of Somerset where historic buildings sit side by side with 21st century retailing and an array of restaurants and cafes. The town has its own castle, now a museum, a cricket ground, a theatre, an antique market and a farmers’ market.  Built on the river Tone, Taunton was an important settlement in the bronze ages and Roman and Saxon times. Evidence of its past can be seen by following the Heritage Trail leaflet freely available from the local Tourist Information Office.

Away from the hustle and bustle and back in your base, the village of Halse has a local pub the New Inn and its Norman church is dedicated to St. James the Less, both are certainly worth a visit.   There is lots to see and do in and near Halse in Somerset.  Similarly, when it comes to self-catering accommodation there is also plenty of choice available, whether you are looking to rent a rural retreat, a country cottage, a dog-friendly cottage or a holiday log cabin.

Book a Halse cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Somerset on holiday.
