    “After a long, hard spring in lockdown we needed a good week away with friends to forget about all the troubles in the world.”

    We were greeted with a homemade gingerbread cake, some local cheese, and a dozen eggs. The cottage felt very clean and we had been reassured by the owner that all relevant Covid-19 precautions and procedures had been followed. Our Cavapoo puppy, Poppy, had a lovely time, and there were lots of doggy bits at the cottage including towels, blankets, treats, bowls, leads and plenty more.

    We were greeted with a homemade gingerbread cake, some local cheese, and a dozen eggs. The cottage felt very clean and we had been reassured by the owner that all relevant Covid-19 precautions and procedures had been followed. Our Cavapoo puppy, Poppy, had a lovely time, and there were lots of doggy bits at the cottage including towels, blankets, treats, bowls, leads and plenty more. Having the enclosed outside space really made a difference too as she could come and go as she pleased without us having to worry about her getting out the gate. We do have a couple of recommendations- The recycling was a bit of a puzzle for us as it is different here to at home. Perhaps you could make a fool proof laminated sheet to stick on each box/bin explaining what goes in each. With the cottage being for 10 people you could do with a couple of really big pans for cooking. We struggled to get it all in one pan when cooking for all adults and children. The final thing I would suggest is that you advise people to bring their own pillows with them as the ones having to be used due to Covid-19 are not the most comfortable. I actual did take pillows for my family but my friend did not and regretted it! Just a thought! Thanks again for a fabulous week, we all loved it!

The property

Situated in the thriving village of Cheddar, in the heart of Somerset, is this fabulous cottage.

Pilgrims Cottage offers a superb base for a group of friends or families interested in exploring this wonderful rural area of Somerset.

Internally, the property has been renovated into a stylish holiday home, complete with high-quality furnishings and offers a wealth of character with the exposed beams and delightful wood burning stoves.

There are two sitting rooms, one of which acts as a snug area, perfect for getting some quiet time of an evening to read a good book with the wood burner providing that warm and homely feeling.

The kitchen is amply-equipped with everything you could need to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal, while the dining area is a place you can enjoy your meals over a glass of something chilled, or planning the day's events.

The first floor has five spacious and well-presented bedrooms, consisting of doubles and twins, with quality furnishings to house all your personal items, whilst the family bathroom has a spa bath for a spot of luxury during your trip.

Outside has a large, enclosed lawned garden with patio and decking area with plenty of furniture to sit out and enjoy the afternoon sun with a refreshing beverage.

Cheddar is a delightful village, which gives access to a number of local tourist attractions, including the stunning Cheddar Gorge, a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills AONB showcasing exhibitions about their formation and rich history, and was the place where Britain's oldest complete human skeleton was found, estimated to date back over 9,000 years.

Visit the Cheddar Reservoir, perfect for those interested in fishing, boating and birdwatching, with a plethora of wildlife in the area.

The Mendip Way offers an 80km footpath, ideal for those who enjoy walking and cycling, with some of the most picturesque country views along the way.

Take a drive towards the stunning coastline for a variety of local sandy beaches where you can treat your little ones to a picnic, or simply let them run and play in the sand, while you enjoy a relaxing swim in the water.

About the location

CHEDDAR

Wells 9 miles; Weston-super-Mare 12 miles.

The large Somerset village of Cheddar is a major tourist destination on the edge of the Mendip Hills, renowned for SSSI Cheddar Gorge, the largest gorge in Britain, which includes several show caves such as Gough’s Cave, through which Britain’s biggest underground river runs. The Cheddar area is unique; apart from the chasm, the Cheddar Gorge cliffs are Britain’s highest inland limestone craggs and create a spectacular sight. The village gave its name to Cheddar cheese and has also been a centre for strawberry growing, the crop being transported on the railway, which now provides a fabulous cycle path. Cyclists will also enjoy the picturesque paths that cross the Somerset Levels, while Wells - the country’s smallest city, with it’s beautiful cathedral, is perfect for culture lovers. Visit the ancient town of Glastonbury, well known for its annual music festival and connections to all things mystical. Alternatively, the scenic Somerset Coast and Exmoor National Park are both easily accessible, truly spoiling you for choice of how to spend your holiday!
