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

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!
