The Larches is tucked quietly away in the small but thriving town of Bampton. This historic Charter town, which lies close to the Somerset border, is on the edge of the Exmoor National Park and is famous for its floral displays and Charter Fair which is always the last Thursday in October. With four pubs within easy walking distance you won't have to worry about cooking at the end of a busy day!  The town also boasts two grocery stores, a bakery, a local butcher, greengrocers, pharmacy, post office, library, café, fish bar and even a beautiful homeware shop just meters from the front door!

Bampton is just a short drive from the harbour at Watchet and the sandy beach at Minehead making it the perfect place from which to explore the coast and countryside.  For the keen cyclist, the West Country Way cycle route takes in Bampton and on into the Exmoor National Park, a unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland.

This newly built, detached house offers stylish and spacious accommodation - as soon you walk through the door into the bright hallway you know you have arrived somewhere rather special. The focal point of the house is the fabulous kitchen/diner complete with bi-fold doors leading to the enclosed level rear garden; this lovely room creates a real holiday atmosphere.

June 2019

We are hoping to rebook again with Toad Hall Cottages. This is our second holiday with you and we are very impressed the service provided.

February 2019

The house is new, well equipped, extremely clean and warm. The get you in pack of local produce was very welcome and generous. The house is central to everywhere and the village of Bampton has everything you need. Extremely happy with the house and owner. We will be returning.

February 2019

Thank you so much for the all the delicious goodies on arrival. Unfortunately we didn't manage to get to the house until 3rd February owing to Bampton (and most of Devon and Cornwall) being snowbound! The house is very warm and comfortable and a real pleasure to return to after a day of exploring the surrounding areas. The house is in a very quiet location but in the heart of the village - ideal for popping out for fresh bread every morning!

February 2019

Stayed October 2018 - A beautiful house that exceeded our expectations, very comfortably furnished throughout. We had lovely days out at Croyde Beach, Crealy Adventure Park, Beer and Exeter. Can highly recommend the fish and chips from the local shop.

February 2019

Stayed September 2018 - Happy holiday in The Larches. Beautiful house with everything we needed. One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in - thank you. Delicious Sunday roasts at the White Horse Inn and a fascinating Church and village.

October 2018

It was the best accommodation we have stayed in, surpassed all of our expectation, the home owner was very accommodating

August 2018

The location of this cottage is great for access to much of Devon and Somerset within an hours drive and very convenient for the shops in Bampton but is still away from the traffic etc. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and we really enjoyed our stay.

August 2018

An excellent stay. Owner resolved request quickly and effectively.

July 2018

Really enjoyed our stay - our 4 year old particularly enjoyed the beaches at Woolacombe, and Croyde and the Tarr Steps

May 2018

We had a wonderful stay, the property was one of the best equipped and presented we have stayed in. Bampton was a good location for us, good food in walking distance and close to Exmoor and the coast. The service from Toad Hall Cottages throughout was great, as was the little touch of a text from the owner to make sure we had arrived ok and everything was in order. Thank you

February 2018

Very nice house. Very clean and good location (if you want quiet). Thank you.

November 2017

We had a very good week. The house is clean, bright and has all the finishing touches. It is very well equipped! Bampton is a good spot to tour Exmoor, the coast and the local villages. We particularly liked Tarr steps and the Tunnel Beaches at Ilfracombe. Eating at the Swan in Bampton is very good and the fish and chip shop is also very good. The Larches is a very peaceful house during the day and night.

November 2017

We enjoyed a short break in their lovely new, well equipped house. The food at the Swan was excellent, also The Rock Inn at waterow. The walk from Bury up to the dam an Heddon Hill is worth a visit on a sunny day.
