    “The comfort of the cottage. The ...”

    The comfort of the cottage. The wonderful scenery, we always stay in cottages when on holiday and I can say this was one of the best we've stayed in. Very good value.

The property

This 260 year old former dairy has been carefully renovated to create a stylish, contemporary holiday home.

Locally produced materials complement the original stone flooring, stable doors and beams, sitting harmoniously alongside modern, tasteful furnishings.

The Dairy has a well fitted galley style kitchen which adjoins the lounge where there are window seats and a cosy electric stove.

On the first floor are two bedrooms, one of which has spectacular far reaching rural views.

To the front, the warm sun room enjoys magnificent, panoramic views over the Somerset Levels, whilst at the rear, at the top of 13 steep, original stone steps (with a handrail) you'll find a pretty patio garden.

Nearby is a nature reserve, bridleway and a footpath which leads to the top of Cheddar Gorge; this world-famous site is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that reveals many fascinating stories of our prehistoric ancestors and is an international centre for caving and rock climbing.

Alternatively, just a short drive away, the ancient village of Cheddar with its famous caves and award winning cheese factory is ideal for exploring.

About the location


Cheddar 1 mile; Wells 5 miles; Weston-super-Mare 12 miles.

Set in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling beneath the scenic Mendip Hills, the village of Draycott is truly a holiday destination to savour. With its two pubs and local shop, this pretty village provides a great base for exploring lovely Somerset. There's plenty to see and do to suit all tastes and ages, including an energetic walk to the top of nearby Cheddar Gorge to view the amazing caves or a more relaxing trip to see the fabulous attractions at Wookey Hole. A visit to the lovely cathedral city of Wells is recommended, whilst slightly further afield but within easy driving distance is the delightful coast at Weston-super-Mare and the Tor and Abbey at Glastonbury. With so much to see and do you'll want to return year after year!
