The Property

Stratton-on-the-Fosse 1 mile. For a completely different holiday experience, try this amazing handcrafted wooden Somerset roundhouse. Set in the grounds of the owner's 40-acre organic farm, this Somerset cottage is near the village of Stratton-on-the-Fosse at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, 2 miles from Midsomer Norton and only 12 miles from historic Bath. This unusual Somerset holiday cottage, 26' in diameter, offers a perfect romantic retreat for couples or a small family who would like to sample a different way of living. The light and airy open plan interior of this Somerset holiday accommodation boasts a romantic handmade four poster bed, created from ash coppiced from the farm's own woodland, whilst the 1940s MK1 Rayburn provides a warm cosy glow. Outside, stroll straight from the door into the countryside and discover the nearby woodlands and valley, or just simply relax, sip a refreshing drink and take in the views across the fields. On site, guests can purchase fresh organic homegrown produce including free range eggs and pork. Then, walk off the excesses over to the nearby Mendip Hills or cycle to Mells, the home of Little Jack Horner of nursery rhyme fame. The beautiful cities of Bath and Wells are a short drive from your Somerset holiday cottage, or alternatively, explore mystical Glastonbury, scenic Cheddar Gorge, or meet the witch at Wookey Hole Caves. A truly original, unconventional and unforgettable holiday experience!

It was very peaceful and relaxing the stress free break we needed. Despite being in the middle of nowhere it was very close to the local amenities that we needed, an absolute pleasure to stay.

Mr Rouse, Fareham, January 2014

It is very unique, lovely place to get away from everything and enjoy time together. It is also close to Longleat and Cheddar Gorge. Would definitely recommend.

Miss Witney, Littlehampton, December 2013

A beautiful, unique place to get away from it all but still close to civilisation if desired. Clean, warm, cosy and comfortable with fantastic hosts who added fantastic personal touches and were attentive when appropriate. Loved it. Just what we needed. Thank you

Ms Nixon, Plymouth, December 2013

A unique experience, the Roundhouse felt like home right away, so carefully built, lots of attention to detail and a genuinely low impact holiday home. A perfect mix of simplicity and luxury. The farm is a great place to explore, and we slept like logs! We are already planning our next break there.
