The Dragon House is a 300 year old former coaching inn, full of charm and character. Ideal for groups of friends or large family gatherings, the house is situated in the small village of Bilbrook just a mile from the coast at Blue Anchor Bay.
The house has a cosy lounge with large inglenook fireplace, an oak paneled dining room, large kitchen, a conservatory and even its own bar complete with an open fireplace!
Upstairs are eight bedrooms (two family, one twin, four double and one single) each with an en suite and freeview TV.
Outside is a cobble stoned courtyard with tables and chairs and a BBQ for al fresco dining and a balcony with further seating. There are two separate lawned areas, one with a pond.
All bed linen and towels are provided along with a well stocked bookcase and board games.
For an extra charge we can provide firewood and a fully stocked bar.
The Dragon House is the perfect venue for any special occasion or party as well as being perfectly located for exploring the beautiful Somerset countryside. Adjacent to The Dragon House is Wisteria Cottage which is also available to rent (see separate listing)

Exmoor National Park has plenty to explore with its open moorlands, beautiful woodlands and rugged coastlines. What better way to spend your day than wandering through Somersets historic towns and villages and sampling a traditional Cream Tea and local cider!
The West Somerset Steam Railway passes by The Dragon House and is a great way to travel through the scenic Somerset countryside. For younger guests, there is a small zoo a couple of miles away and indoor soft play centre in Minehead.
Throughout the year there are various festivals and carnivals happening, one of the most popular being the Dunster By Candlelight festival at the beginning of December.
