About the property

Enjoying a wonderful position on the fringes of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty, found within the village of Draycott, is this annexe dwelling, Quarry Cottage.

Just a stone's throw from Cheddar Gorge and the beauty of the Mendips, Quarry Cottage makes the perfect base for a couples' walking retreat.

Make use of the two private parking spaces before grabbing your bags and heading inside this lovely abode attached to the owner's home, taking off your boots in the porchway and passing the cloakroom.

Be welcomed into a spacious open-plan living room, the social hub of the house, with a large leather sofa and an easy chair being perfect spots to relax after a long journey or a busy day.

Flick on the TV or gather around at one of the two dining areas to set up a fun board game brought from home, whilst the chef of the group can hop back and forth as dinner cooks in the kitchen.

Every essential appliance can be found in the contemporary kitchen, including an integrated double electric oven and a gas hob, with a washing machine convenient for any muddy walking gear!

Head upstairs in the evening to rest and refresh for another exciting day, with a bathroom home to a roomy P-shape bath ideal for a long soak and a shower overhead too, and three delightful double bedrooms each offering tranquil sleeping spots and plenty of storage for your things.

Enjoy summer evenings spent on the raised patio reached via an external staircase, or sit out here with your morning cup of tea before walking into the village of Draycott, visiting the local Draycott Village Stores for any food and essentials needed.

Two pubs can be found in Draycott too, great for a well-deserved pint or tipple of choice after a walk in the Mendip Hills, whilst the nearby town of Cheddar has plenty to offer with shops and a café and of course the magnificent Cheddar Gorge; explore this amazing limestone gorge and its caves including the extensive Gough's Cave and the smaller Cox's Cave, with Britain's oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, discovered here thought to be 9,000 years old!

Pick up some cheese from The Original Cheddar Cheese Company and some local cider for an authentic Somerset experience, perfect to take on a picnic with you on a ramble, with the West Mendip Way being a great walking route to begin with extending from Weston-super-Mare all the way down to Wells.

Head to the cathedral city of Wells for their weekly farmer’s market held in the marketplace, enjoy walking around the city and discover the Grade I listed building of The Bishop's Palace next to the oldest continuously occupied medieval street in Europe, Vicars' Close, connected to Wells Cathedral and built over 650 years ago.

Don't miss adventuring into the caves at Wookey Hole just outside of Wells along with some scenic woodland walks, take a trip to the famous and mystical site of Glastonbury Tor, or head to the seaside at Weston-super-Mare or Burnam-on-Sea.

Enjoy a wealth of adventure from Quarry Cottage in Somerset.

With its two pubs and local shop, this pretty village provides a great base for exploring lovely Somerset.
