Description from owner


A lovely, cosy 19th century cottage situated in the oldest parish of the town and centrally situated just a few minutes walk to the beautiful Saxon centre of Taunton which contains many lovely restaurant's, artisan shops, parks, gardens, riverside walks. The cottage is also within a short walking distance to Kings College, ideal for the ESCA Summer Cricket Festival. Edith Cottage has been decorated to reflect its Victorian heritage and some original features remain. This delightful two bedroomed cottage boasts a lovely sunny garden to the front with a private more secluded courtyard garden at the rear. The family bathroom, with shower over bath, is conveniently situated between the bedrooms. On the ground floor off the utility area is a separate toilet and hand basin. There is a designated parking space for the cottage which is reached via electronic security gates making parking safe and secure. Parking limited to ONE car only. Free on street parking is available a 10 minute walk from the cottage. Minimum 2 night stay. Edith Cottage is owner cleaned, managed and maintained.

Taunton has excellent public transport links Via rail and road and is the home of Somerset County Cricket Club, Taunton Racecourse and the renowned Taunton Flower Show dubbed "the Chelsea of the West" (held annually in August)

The West Somerset Steam Railway at Bishops Lydeard traverses the North Somerset coast visiting Watchet, Blue Anchor, Dunster and Minehead. The Exmoor National Park is approx. 50 mins by Car. To the South of the County is the Jurassic coastline of Lyme Regis, West Bay (home to the famous TV programme Broadchurch) and Chesil Beach.

Very Good


Reviewed 2 Sep 2018

This has to be the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, Lovely and clean and well equipped. Julie was there to meet us and was very helpful. Good base to travel for days out or just wonder into Taunton it's self. It's the finishing touches that make this cottage a home for a week or two. We didn't want to leave.

“Lovely, well cared for property, close to Taunton town centre.”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2018

Edith cottage is very well equipped and beautifully presented holiday accommodation. It is conveniently located and is a very short walk to both the town centre and King's school - perfect for families attending the cricket festivals! We received a warm welcome when we arrived and our whole experience was efficiently managed.

“Great base and excellent host”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2018

We enjoyed our short stay at Edith Cottage. Julie greeted us and was always available nearby should problems arise ( they didn't ). The cottage was exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated and well-equipped. The reserved parking space was a valuable asset, so close to the town centre. We would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone.

Lovely cosy very clean well equipped cottage. Within walking distance of the main town (5 mins) blinds and curtains on bedroom windows block out any early morning sunlight. Greeted on arrival by the owner with the keys and was told any questions we might have just to give her a call also lovely welcome pack we'd be happy to stay here again on any future visit


Reviewed 14 Aug 2016

Our trip was for the cricket festival at Kings College and the cottage was ideal, close to the college and walking distance to the town centre.. Just what we wanted. The cottage is lovely and well kept, it can be a little noisey on an evening but if you want a central location you couldn't get better than Edith Cottage.
