Stunning New Coach Houses
The historical Coach House at North Cadbury Court has recently been sympathetically converted into four unique, high end holiday cottages with more than a nod to their past equestrian function in design and decor.
The south Somerset villages of North and South Cadbury, in this most ancient Vale of Camelot, offer a glimpse into some of Somerset’s earliest history including many of the purported sites for the King Arthur legends.
Our Coach Houses are ideally located just two hours from London and an hour from Bath, Bristol and Exeter, with easy transfers from local airports and train stations. The Coach Houses are conveniently placed for a stay en route to Devon or Cornwall.
We are dog friendly! Please ask for our pet policy and details on booking. (One dog per cottage, using downstairs area only and not allowed on the furniture please). Poo bin and bags provided!
An Equine History
The Coach House catered for the coaches and horses belonging to the gentry of the adjacent and magnificent Grade I listed (Elizabethan) mansion, North Cadbury Court. The stylishly refurbished Coach House, which is alongside the 15th century historic village church, offers high end rural luxury retreats by combining comfortable open plan modern living with state of the art fixtures and gadgetry. All presented whilst still respectfully retaining the character and many features of the original very old stone stables building. The cast iron horse stalls can now be seen on the walls as decoration.
Each house has four bedrooms, so if you are a large group you could book all four houses with 16 double bedrooms. Two of the houses sleep eight guests across four en-suite bedrooms. The other two houses sleep up to seven guests.
Carriage House and Tack Room (both sleep 8)
£1,200 for a two night stay. Additional nights @ £460
Stables and Horse Stalls (both sleep 7)
£1,050 for a two night stay. Additional nights @ £400
Sofa beds available for extra two guests in Carriage and Stables @ £60 for one person or £70 for two. Please note these are in the kitchen/dining room area so not private.
For bookings in 2024 the prices will be £1,360 for The Carriage House and Tack Room (additional nights £600). The price for The Stables and Horse Stalls will be £1,240 (additional nights £550).
The Coach Houses come equipped with full kitchen facilities and appliances and are offered on a self-catering basis. There is a breakfast hamper of delicious and home made local produce delivered on the first day of your stay, which is included in the price. Each house also has its own BBQ and outdoor area for dining al fresco.
We can also offer guests a choice of talented local caterers who can provide everything possibly needed, from evening meals to lunches and picnics. Group catering can be made possible if you are using more than one house. The well stocked village shop is a two minute walk and we now have Teal’s – a new eatery, food market and farm shop/deli just five minutes away, plus a plethora of supermarkets all very close by. There are many welcoming restaurants and gastro pubs all eager to impress you with the high standard of Somerset fayre. Somerset is a food producing county after all and our own cheese, Montgomery Cheddar, is made here on the estate.

We have a whole range of activities to enjoy on our doorstep. Whether you are interested in art, shopping or you enjoy the great outdoors, our things to do section is full of ideas to help you plan your stay.
As well as great cycling countryside, there are many idyllic walking routes including the aforementioned legendary site and purported Cadbury Hill Fort of King Arthur’s Camelot. Local market towns such as Bruton, Castle Cary, Sherborne and Wincanton offer fabulous ancient architecture in the vernacular local Cary stone. All nearby towns offer quirky shopping and most have weekly market days. Snuggled away into many of our local historical towns are some now-famous and well-known local eateries and art galleries. Or venture a little further to the cities of Bath, Bristol and Wells for cathedrals and grandeur in architecture. There is an eclectic choice of restaurants and country pubs within a very short drive from our location. Also for sea lovers, the south coast is approximately one hour away for coastal day trips. Easy access by A303 to western coastline or head directly south for some of Dorset’s finest beaches.
