Welcome to Little Orchard Cottage

Little Orchard Cottage in the quiet hamlet of Vellow is in a converted 17th century, detached stone building offering self-catering accommodation in a stunning location. Vellow is a tiny hamlet composed of period, local stone and thatched cottages, conveniently situated at the base of the Quantock Hills and Exmoor on the edge of the village of Stogumber, amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the West Country.

With beautiful furnishings, original oil paintings and a private, cobbled courtyard garden, Little Orchard Cottage boasts endless charm. Immediate access to the Quantocks and Exmoor makes it a dream location for walkers or simply a quiet getaway – all within walking distance to the pub.

Fiona and Tom were perfect hosts and the little cottage is everything we wished for for our weekend away. Tom printed out and drew us a personalised walk in Exmoor and Fi had some excellent suggestions for places to visit. They had the perfect balance between being around, friendly and helpful and knowing when we wanted to do our own thing. The cottage is set in their beautiful garden, in a great location for exploring Exmoor, the Quantocks and the stunning Jurassic coastline. We loved the delightful extras including meeting scruffball the very friendly Robin. All in all a beautiful, friendly place to stay, we would highly recommend.

A wonderful escape to an idylic place! We were made very welcome by Tom and Fi - lovely, genuine people, very relaxed, very helpful but totally unobtrusive. The cream tea (now stuff of legends!) was fab and we had everything we needed in this romantic little cottage. Lovely walks right from the door too with torches for a moonlit walk to the pub! Highly recommended.

Our stay was at Little Orchard Cottage was fantastic! Fiona and Tom are so warm and welcoming and were more than happy to advise on the local area. On our arrival we were welcomed with delicious cream teas still warm from the oven. The cottage has a lovely interior with serene beach paintings. It’s very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. Their welcome book is great and gives lots of information on the local area. The cottage also had maps available and very kindly Tom gave us great 10 mile route to do (with a pub stop off)! It honestly felt like we were staying with friends who wanted to make sure we had the best time while staying with them. We also were lucky enough to meet the famous tame Robin who for a moment or two perched on my hand. There was so much to see and do and the Quantock Hills and the surrounding areas, it’s without doubt one of the most beautiful areas I’ve visited in the UK. We definitely plan to visit again and we will absolutely want to stay at Little Orchard Cottage!
