Situated right next to a main road, ideal and convenient for some, not for us. Needs some updating and attention to décor and comfort. This place would be ok if all you want is somewhere to sleep. After a narrow escape with our dog jumping...More

Obviously disappointed to receive our first poor review after six years of guesting with many repeats, so we must have been doing something right,.however very pleased your dog came to no harm..

Spent a lovely week at Flaxpool Well. The surrounding countryside is beautiful - loads of walks in the area and some lovely dog friendly pubs and restaurants. Kitchen and facilities within cottage are probably more suited to a short break rather than a week.

About the neighbourhood
Situated in the Quantock Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, 38 square miles of the most beautiful hills and combes, home to red deer and wild ponies. Wonderful for walking, riding and mountain biking. It is no surprise that the Quantock Hills inspired the romantic poets Taylor Coleridge and Wordsworth. Coleridge wrote some of his most famous poems when living in Nether Stowey, a Quantock village. . Beaches - There are several beaches in the area. Kilve on the Jurassic coast for fossil hunting and Minehead a family resort with shops, restaurants and amusement arcade. Golf and Water Sports - A choice of Links or Parkland Courses within a 20 minute drive. Wimbleball Reservoir - 30 minute drive for watersports - dinghy sailing, kayaking, angling. Instruction available for ...
How to get there
We are 11 miles out of Taunton if driving on the 358 towards Minehead (see map). You will pass a sign on the RIGHT to Triscombe, Flaxpool Garage will be on your LEFT. It does not sell fuel. Continue down a short steep hill. At the bottom on the LEFT there is a large signboard for the Crowcombe Village Shop and Carew Arms Pub, followed by a farm. machinery business. You will see three grain silos on the RIGHT side of the road. Immediately after the machinery sheds and opposite the silos, there is a partly obscured track on the LEFT. Proceed down this track for 30M into an open area and turn RIGHT up a slope to The Well House and a barred gate. We keep this shut because of our dog. Phone in advance and we will have the gate open. Alternatively you can exit the M5 at Junction 23 to B...
