    Lovely welcome from Sue and not disappointed when entering the lovely cottage, loving the fresh flowers from Sues garden, lovely touch, small jug milk in fridge. Has everything you need and car park space undercover. Plenty of places to eat nearby sad to leave.

  • "Absolutely lovely property, really clean and tidy and exactly as pictured."

    Easy to check in and out of and hosts were really friendly. We had a really relaxing, comfortable stay. It was so restorative and just what we needed! Just some useful info for future guests, hand soap wasn't provided so bring your own. Only one toilet roll so if you think you'll use more in your week stay bring your own. They provide some logs and kindling in the starter pack but no matches. The WiFi is only 1-2mbs so you may have trouble if you were planning on doing a bit of work while you're away.

    The owners are lovely people and it makes a world of difference them living on site. A real treat to be surrounded by flowers and lawns. Great to sit under the parasol. Very well furnished and equipped cottage. The owner told us that she furnished it to the same standard as her home. The location is lovely - in the middle of nowhere but only eight minutes to the motorway. Excellent wifi. Our dog loved it. All in all a lovely holiday in a very comfortable cottage. Would we return? YES!!!!

    The owner was really helpful and even offered to pick up some groceries as our car had broken down! There had been a lot of effort to make the cottage look festive with tasteful decorations as indeed was the tasteful decor. All needs were catered for in the fully equipped kitchen. It was warm cosy, the beds were really comfy and I can't fault anything! It is a great base from which to explore Somerset and blissfully quiet! We will definitely be back!

  • "Really nice cottage with everything you could need in it."

    Lovely garden . . Lovely owners. Nothing was any trouble to them (but they were not intrusive) and by the end of the week we felt that we had known them for ages. The area was peaceful, people were friendly. Village only one mile. We were lucky to have a couple of really hot days so it was nice to sit outside the cottage under the umbrella for a few hours. The small caravan field is no problem, in fact we took our dog for a run up there every morning and evening. We met some really nice caravan owners to chat to. Burnham on Sea is only 10 minutes away by car. No dogs on the beach but Apex Park (free to park) at the far end is great for dog walking. Takes about 40 minutes to walk around the lake and then plenty of picnic benches and seats. A catering van plus ice cream van are in the car park. All in all a lovely place to spend a couple of hours or more with or without a dog and less than 10 minutes from cottage. We also loved Wells only 13 miles away. And Clark’s Village, Street for shopping. Weston Super Mare is only 15 minutes away. We would highly recommend Pear Tree Cottage.

The property

Mark 1 mile.

A delightful barn conversion, attached to the owner's home, close to the village of Mark, five miles from the seaside resort of Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset.

Set in a tranquil, rural position, this superb property is in an ideal location for friends or family to enjoy walking, cycling or birdwatching in the Somerset countryside.

Tastefully furnished and beautifully appointed throughout, the cottage has a spacious open plan beamed living area with comfy sofas overlooking the garden to the fields beyond.

The well-equipped kitchen and dining area are perfect for enjoying a home-cooked meal, if you prefer not to sample the tasty local fare in the village pubs.

Step through from the living area to the rear of the cottage, where you will find two beamed bedrooms and the bathroom and utility rooms.

The main bedroom has a comfy king-size bed and a wall-mounted TV, while the second bedroom has two snug single beds.

On warm afternoons you can relax on the flower-filled patio and enjoy a drink, whilst looking out over the lawned gardens.

Stroll down to the front gate, and you may see swans nesting on the stream, which flows alongside the lane.

As well as being ideally placed to explore the Somerset countryside, this lovely cottage is perfectly located for the many attractions nearby such as Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Wells Cathedral and the sandy beaches at Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea.

The festival at Glastonbury and the winter carnivals at Bridgwater, together with the surrounding towns and villages, are all reasons to stay.

If you need some retail therapy, then the vibrant cities of Bristol and Bath are both an easy drive.

A charming cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of the year.

About the location


Burnham-on-Sea 5 miles; Glastonbury 11 miles.

The pretty village of Mark is situated in the heart of the beautiful Somerset Levels, and is criss-crossed by long watery rhynes, which drain the wetlands for pasture, aiding the production of fine Somerset cheese. The village boasts an ancient church, built in honour of St Mark, as well as excellent walking and cycle paths, and a variety of rare species of birds, making it a haven for twitchers! Situated at the mouth of the River Parrett and Bridgewater Bay, the popular seaside resort of Burnham-on-Sea is just 4 miles away. With views across to distant Wales, and 7 miles of sandy beaches and dunes, the town also boasts Britain's shortest pier and some of the most distinctive lighthouses around, as well as the marble carvings of Sir Christopher Wren in its parish church. The Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Weston-super-Mare, ancient Glastonbury and the cathedral city of Wells are all within easy driving distance. A fantastic location for a varied holiday at any time of the year.
