Thornby, a light and airy bungalow, looks out towards the glistening Blue Anchor Bay in the West Somerset village of Blue Anchor. The West Somerset Railway is close to the property with the Blue Anchor railway station being only 200 meters from the property, and trains can be seen as they go round the bay. It's comfortable accommodation and superb location for outdoor opportunities make it a fine base for couples, families and friends to enjoy together.

First to greet you upon entering the property is the inviting sitting room; snug leather sofas, a warming electric fire and a Freeview TV help to make this the perfect relaxing spot after the sun goes down. Both bedrooms, a double and a twin, are delightfully finished with superb views beyond the garden and out to sea. The family bathroom at the property is a sparkling, tiled layout with the choice of a bath and a separate shower cubicle.

Prepare and enjoy your home-cooked meals in the refreshing kitchen/diner set with cream units, a range of useful appliances and a charming dining table. Adjacent to this is a wonderfully bright conservatory, should you want to admire this idyllic location while eating your dinner. From here, step out onto the lawned garden, which presents views of breath-taking Exmoor to the left and the sandy beach to the right.

Blue Anchor's café and choice of two friendly pubs are within walking distance, as is the fabulous beach, for those scorching summer days. Many spectacular attractions lie within easy reach; visit Dunster with its beautiful castle, the quaint harbour town of Watchet and the coastal resort of Minehead which has a golf course, and tickets for Butlins can be bought here, all of which are well worth a day trip. Avid walkers, cyclists and wildlife spotters can venture through the renowned Exmoor National Park nearby.

Thornby is a splendid retreat in a fine rural location.
