Additional Location Information
Tilbury Farm is located above the village of West Bagborough, on the southern slopes of the Quantock Hills. An area of outstanding natural beauty, this area is famous for the poets Coleridge and Wordsworth who once lived and wrote here.
The farm commands stunning views across Taunton Deane towards the Blackdown Hills and west over Exmoor National Park.
Tilbury Farm was once part of the Cothelstone Estate whose beautiful parkland lies immediately below. This is therefore an ideal location for walking and cycling over a network of footpaths and bridleways across open moorland, wooded combes and rolling countryside.
Other local attractions include the West Somerset Steam Railway, Exmoor National Park, Hestercombe Gardens, Dunster Castle & Mill, the coast at Kilve Beach to the north.
There are great dining opportunities at the local village pub The Rising Sun (20 mins walk) as well as several other pubs, restaurants and tea rooms nearby. The county town of Taunton is only 15 mins drive with many restaurants as well as a weekly farmers market for self-catering. A well-stocked farmshop with local fresh produce including a wide range of deli items is located at Bishops Lydeard (5 mins drive) as well as a butchers and a general grocery store.

What Past Guests Are Saying
An amazing place to stay in a stunning part of the world!
We stayed here for just one evening in June. It was great fun driving along the windy single lane roads to find the place, with glimpses of beautiful landscape along the way.
Driving in to Tilbury farm, the view across the lower landscapes is just breathtaking and has to be seen to be believed.
On arrival Matt and Jenny and their beautiful children (and not to forget the two friendly goats) welcomed us warmly and we felt very much at home.
The cottage is beautifully done, with high quality furnishings and is spotlessly clean. There is nothing missing as far as I could see.
I would recommend to anyone that they visit this area and they should definitely stay at the Tilbury farm cottage.
My biggest mistake - not staying longer!!
Lovely bolt-hole with thoughtful touches
We visited in January, as an escape from a stressful situation and it really was a tonic. The cottage is done beautifully, with everything you need. The living room / kitchen area has great views and the sofas are perfect for lounging! The thoughtful additions of milk, juice, butter, bread, jam, eggs, bacon and sausages made a huge difference - all the basics you need for a weekend away so that you don't have to plan too much. We had a lovely couple of walks but the cottage was so cosy we spent the majority of the weekend lazing around with the papers raga in an excellent touch to have them delivered each morning) or watching Dvds!
Especially nice to be able to stay on until Sunday afternoon, as there was no-one coming in on Monday.
Very satisfactory stay at Tilbury Farm
My wife Jenny and I stayed at Tilbury Farm for a week beginning June. We were fully satisfied despite wet weather. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. I did comment to Matt that I thought the provisions of a welcoming pack were generous and not found in other good cottages we have used. Matt and his family were easy to relate with, giving good advice on local services and features. Whilst I have understood that the Quantocks are a beauty spot the hills, the walks and the view from the cottage were a revelation. We have both an agenda to re-visit. Please do so yourself.

I have been very fortunate to have two experiences at this wonderful location. June (I believe I may have been the first guest, arriving from america with my good friend Mary, who is eager for her next visit with her family) and December 2011. No matter the season, everything that is sheer bliss is here. Serenity, just enough 'isolation' yet close enough to so many amenities, perfect walking country(no matter the weather) and the best of all the ambler family who allow for as much privacy as one could wish for, yet there, if anything is needed.
I truly felt like a Lady, the security of a gated entrance, to be aloft almost on the top of the Quantocks with stunning views every minute of every day. I could go on and on praising and words could not describe adequately. Just book (if there are any vacancies left!)and experience this unique place for yourselves.
loved our stay at Tilbury Farm, high quality furnishings and quiet location ensured we had a relaxing holiday - views over the valley are superb
generous local products supplied for breakfast pack
Matt & Jenny are great hosts and always available for advise on walks and places to visit
The Rising Sun within walking distance and numerous walks and bike trails close by

Relaxation in quality surroundings
The accommodation is part of a converted barn spread out on two floors, with the main living accommodation being open plan. It's very quiet and secluded here, a peaceful haven. We enjoyed both cycling and walking around here, with plenty of variation, from woodlands to coast. Matt and Jenny are very friendly hosts. Our only regret is that we didn't get to try the food at the local pub as ran out of time. But at least it gives us a reason to go back!
