About the Owner
I actually live in Switzerland with my Family and we love to come and stay at My Cottage (Family Home) every year. My Daughter loves to go riding on The Quantocks.
l enjoy taking the Bookings (to have that friendly contact with people that will be staying in my Cottage). I have a local family who take care of Moonfleat and my Guests. Am very fortunate to have a friendly family who keep their Horse in My back Paddock . Moonfleat holds a lot of sentimental value, as it was my late Mother's home from when we moved there in the early 80s.

Relaxing atmosphere in a beautiful spot
I've stayed a few times at Moonfleat. It is a home from home, welcoming and comfortable, and has everything you need for your stay. It's Penny's family home and this reflects in every bit of the cottage, it's loved and looked after perfectly. The top garden has views across the Somerset coastline, the Welsh coast can be seen in the day and at night with the twinkling lights, Cardiff Airport is really clear at night. The garden's enclosed and dog friendly. The little orchard is lovely and my little dog loves running through it. The area is full of places to visit, Dunster is gorgeous (although I am bias as my family come from there). There are no end of pubs serving good food. For a drive out, The Rest and Be Thankful out at Wheddon Cross, serves excellent food and the staff are friendly. Sunday dinners are good at the Badgers Holt in Bridgetown (on the way to Dulverton). I really can't fault Moonfleat apart from the fact that I never want to leave
From the Owner
“It was always my family Dream to move to the West Country. Being a horsey family and having 2 Boarder Collies, Moonfleat seemed to fit the picture. Well am glad l did. l have some wonderfull memories to fall back on. As the years have gone by many improvements have been made to the Cottage itself without spoiling its charm.”

From the Owner
“The most enjoyable thing that comes to my mind is the Breathtaking views from Moonfleat and the joy of the Sunset which have been able to catch some evenings. When l close my eyes the twittering of all the different species of birds.”
