With its lovely beaches, beautiful countryside and fascinating history, dating back to the times of the Ancient Britons, Somerset makes a wonderful holiday destination. Here in the heart of England's west country, you will find historic houses and beautiful gardens, world-class museums, bustling towns and pretty villages. Meanwhile, for nature lovers, there's the wild landscape of Exmoor, the stunning Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip and Quantock Hills, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This classic English countryside has perfect places to picnic, great spots for golf and fishing, and miles of footpaths and tracks for walking, cycling and horse-riding. The famous West Somerset Steam Railway starts just a few miles away. This is the longest Steam Heritage Railway in the UK. The county has more than its fair share of beach resorts too. The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare is superb, while Minehead and Burnham-on-Sea offer a choice of traditional seaside pleasures.
Situated just two miles from the centre of the historic county town of Taunton and nestled away in the village of Bishops Hull are Milligan Hall Cottages, which comprise three self catering cottages and one apartment, forming the conversion of the remaining wing of the original Hall. The properties stand in the extensive grounds of the former Milligan Hall, and have glorious views towards Exmoor in one direction and Taunton and the Blackdown Hills in the other. Bishops Hull has a local pub (which serves food most lunchtimes and evenings), a butcher, shop, post office and a church.
The wildlife is a feature of the property, and it is not unusual to see the resident badgers, deer, pheasant, fox and a wide variety of native birds. A nature reserve is accessed through a short woodland walk down to the river Tone. From here it is an easy walk into Taunton, following the river, or it is possible to follow the walks in the other direction to the small village of Bradford-on-Tone and beyond. Bishops Hull is on the National Cycle Route 3.
