Home Orchard with its thatched roof, stone floors and oak studded doors is full of character and charm.

Very spacious and comfortable with open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, whitewashed walls and warm toasty aga.

There are two bedrooms with deep mattresses, 400 thread count cotton bedding, and super fluffy pillows, so you can settle in and truly relax. The first bedroom has a French style king-sized bed. The second bedroom can be arranged as a superking-sized double or as two single beds.

On the first floor you can find the bathroom which holds a large, walk-in rain-head shower. The house has a dual aspect open plan living/dining/kitchen area for four people. The sitting area has comfortable sofas and is equipped with a 42′ flatscreen TV. The kitchen area is modern and well equipped with a large central island, an electric two oven Aga, microwave, dishwasher, a large fridge-freezer and a washer-drier.

The house has a courtyard with an outdoor table and private parking area for two cars. The two front doors open out to the good-sized sheltered courtyard with outdoor table and chairs for alfresco eating or just enjoying a morning coffee. There is a private parking area with space for two cars. The courtyard is fully enclosed and is a safe place for little people and four legged friends!

Home Orchards rural location makes it a great escape for those looking for a countryside bolt-hole, with two great pubs within a short walk and things to see and do nearby, and convenient shopping at the village shop or in the quaint town of Ilminster just 2 miles away.

Loading map

Home Orchard is situated in the heart of Broadway, a peaceful village surrounded by fields and woods that are perfect for countryside walks and bicycle rides due to the myriad of local country lanes and footpaths.

Within a few minutes walking distance are two pubs: The Bell Inn, Broadway and The Five Dials at Horton. There are several others a little further afield but nevertheless worth the visit.

Nearby the cottage are Dillington House and Barrington Court, two National Trust historic homes with beautiful gardens open to the public. Dillington House being 6.4 km away by car and Barrington Court being 12.4km.

There are several local cider producers whose orchards and presses are worth seeing close by. Perry's Cider Mill in Dowlish Wake has a small museum on offer and open all year round besides Christmas Day. There is also The Somerset Cider Brandy Company over at Burrow Hill that offers tastings and guided tours a little further field.
A little further away the beach at Lyme Regis and walks along the Jurassic coastline are 40mins or so to the South.

    on 18/10/2023

    Lovely property as described. Very comfortable all round. Good help and information from owners.

  • Fantastic accommodation

    on 16/07/2023

    Beautifully furnished. Great welcome pack. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • Beautiful location

    on 04/07/2022

    We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It was really well equipped and finished to a very high standard. The surrounding area is beautiful, with access to countryside walks, beaches and some great pubs for lunch and dinner. A Five-star stay! Many thanks indeed

  • The perfect cottage!

    on 30/06/2022

    Decorated and presented to the highest of standards you will feel so spoilt staying here. Luxury is an understatement. Add to that, Glenda was the absolute best host - contact prior to our stay made us feel so considered and welcomed and directions to find the place on the first day of our stay were great. The location itself is outstanding with everything you need a stones throw away. Be prepared to never want to leave!

  • Fantastic cottage

    on 15/06/2022

    I wish I could rate this more than 5*. Absolutely beautiful cottage, so tastefully decorated and there is nothing Glenda hasn’t thought of. We had the most wonderful stay; lazing in luxurious bedding and cooking breakfast on the Aga. It really is such a relaxing space, one that we didn’t want to leave. We will be back, of that I am certain. The best cottage we have visited.

  • Met our expectations and more!

    on 28/05/2022

    This is a beautiful cottage. From the photos, we had formed high expectations and the tasteful interior design, alongside quality fixtures and fittings, certainly met them. It really is as good as it looks! There are 2 very good pubs nearby and a small village store within easy walking distance. Ilminster is only a short drive away for anything else you might need in the way of shopping. Overall, we can highly recommend this cottage and hope to return one day.

  • We'll be returning!

    on 25/04/2022

    Simply the best holiday house we have stayed in. The house is perfectly equipped, completely spotless and extremely comfy. The house is perfect for families with young children and the owner offered cots and high chairs as soon as we booked which was very helpful. We can't recommend it highly enough. Huge thanks, we'll be back!
