Exclusive chalet 2 miles outside Taunton, in the Trull area. Separate bedroom with ensuite, modern kitchen, lounge area to relax in & private gated parking. Deck area for al fresco dining & access to a BBQ in the orchard. We invite you to stroll down to the orchard to collect freshly laid eggs from our chickens for your breakfast every morning.
A real secret hideaway, don't tell too many !

Please Note: I follow Airbnb's strict cleaning protocols after each guests checks out.

The space
'The Chalet Somerset' was completed in 2013 and is constructed from Douglas Fir and is situated in beautiful countryside and farmland and boasts the idyllic 360 degree panoramic views we, ourselves fell in love with.

It is a beautiful one bedroom, hi-spec fully equipped self catering apartment with separate lounge/kitchen and bathroom.
We are immensely proud of the floor to ceiling gable end window which allows our guests to fully immerse themselves in the Somerset countryside views all from the comfort of the king size bed!
There is a raised decking area for you to enjoy al fresco dining or simply sit and admire the wonderful views. There is of course, the orchard for you to have a traditional coal BBQ in. This is also where our chickens live, who are an integral part of our family and we would encourage you to wander down into the orchard and collect freshly laid eggs for your breakfast.

For your information Check in is 3pm and check out is 11am.

Hygiene and Cleanliness
We have always had vigorous cleaning protocols in place for the chalet and this too is reflected in our feedback scores on Airbnb. But we wanted to communicate and highlight to our guests what we do each time someone checks out, to ensure your peace of mind when coming to stay here with us.
- After each guest has left a thorough deep clean is undertaken, with all surfaces being cleaned with antibacterial spray and bleach where applicable.
- All bedding and towels are washed at 60 degrees. (we would ask you to strip the bed and leave all the bedding and towels in the blue ikea bag provided)
- The mattress protector and pillow protectors are also changed between guests.
- All crockery, glassware and cutlery goes through the dishwasher on a 60 degree cycle after every visit
- The floor is vacuumed in the bedroom and mopped in the kitchen.
- The fridge is wiped out and down with disinfectant.
- The bin is cleansed.
- The leather sofa is wiped down with a spray cleaner.
- Windows and the door are opened during the cleaning process to allow ventilation.
In addition:
- Anything which can be read or played in the chalet (books/welcome guide/Xbox) is wiped down with an antibacterial spray.
- Sadly we can no longer currently provide any condiments in the chalet; (salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, herbs etc) and they have been removed. We will however leave teabags in a plastic pocket which will be uniquely for you and no-one other than myself (whilst wearing gloves) will have touched them to put them into the pocket. Coffee will still be available as they are in individual pods, which will be left out for you.
