  • "We had a wonderful stay, the house was roomy and well equipped."

    I read a review that said the pans were too small, so we packed pans and there was absolutely no need- maybe you can try and take it off? Thank you for the lovely personal touches and decorating for christmas, you really made our stay great.

  • "The cottage was lovely and beautifully clean."

    The garden was well maintained. Our only gripe was that the cooking pans weren't big enough to cook for 5 adults.

    Was better than the pictures show. Only downside was that the kitchen could have done with a couple of bigger pans!

  • "I understand that the cottage is relatively new so there are a few minor facilities / utensils that could be improved on within the kitchen."

    Generally fantastic holiday cottage for large family, in great location for Mendip Hills, Cheader, Glastonbury and the beaches of Weston Super Mare / Brean.

The property

A perfect opportunity for the extended family to spend quality time together away from hustle and bustle of every day life.

Milestones is a beautiful, spacious, light and airy home with it’s own unique character.

Occupying a private and discrete location at the foot of the Mendip hills in the small country village of Westbury sub Mendip, Somerset.

Boasting a glorious view across the Somerset levels and views of Glastonbury Tor, this grand property is ideal for drivable visits to local beaches, with magnificent views along the way, with the nearest beaches being Weston Super Mare and Brean Sands.

There are four bedrooms within the property equipped to sleep eight people - the master bedroom has an en-suite.

The spacious living room has large windows offering a stunning panoramic view of the hills and surrounding countryside.

It is easily large enough to incorporate the space needed for the larger family, providing a spacious place to play games together at the end of each day.

The surrounding areas provide a chance to explore caves and visit places of famous historical interest.

Milestones is the perfect ‘wind down’ retreat to return to after a busy day of exploring.

Offering an equipped and large kitchen area to prepare the ‘feet up’ family meal, to be enjoyed in the spacious dining room, that overlooks the private, established rear garden.

There is also a Study room equipped with a desk and work area, for private space, or for those who may need to sneak in a little secret holiday work time.

It is perfect for all ages as a base to explore this wonderful county; however being situated on the slopes of the Mendip hills it is on a moderate incline with a tiered mature garden and as such there are steps and the rear garden has three levels.

There is also a cot provided for a little one.

The garden is beautifully steeped, curved and sectioned to afford the chance of a private moment for reading and relaxation, whilst soaking up the beautiful Somerset atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

The local area has everything you need for a short or long stay.

A quaint, community run post office offers fresh produce, wines and general goods.

There is a local village pub which serves food with perfect hospitality.

Look out for entertainment that is also provided there on occasions.

On the doorstep there are many walking opportunities, immerse yourself deep into the heart of the countryside and marvel over spectacular views.

Wookey hole is a short distance away, offering entertainment for children and the opportunity to travel deep into excavated caves and discover the habitat of pre-historic man!

The historic landmark, Cheddar Gorge, is just a couple of villages away, sample cave aged Cheddar cheese that is made locally or just marvel at the beauty of the enormous chiseled rock faces.

Some climbing opportunity is available locally too and plenty of walks over a wide range of routes to suit all abilities from hike to easy stroll, plenty for all to have a glorious day out.

Visit the famous, mystical Glastonbury Tor, which can be seen from Milestones, busy with foot climbers at all times of the day it offers the very best views across the whole region.

Whilst in Glastonbury you could also take a tour of the ruins of the famous Abbey, another site linked to the legendary King Arthur.

A short distance from Glastonbury is the town of Street and the opportunity to browse the wide range of shops at Clarkes Village where you can pick up a bargain.

The Somerset levels are a habitat for a wide range of wildlife, particularly rare birds and a more common species, the Starling can be seen performing at certain times of the year their breath-taking murmuration creating fabulous patterns and shapes as they flock together above the marshes.

Slightly further afield are Bristol and Bath, Milestones affords a comfortable day out to these locations.

Bath offers the opportunity to see genuine Roman Spa’s and a chance to learn about Roman early settlers or to just gaze at the beautiful, affluent architecture that fills this Royal City.

Bristol offers a variety of restaurants, historic docks and a not to be missed opportunity to see the SS Great Britain and Brunel’s famous suspension bridge.

About the location


Wookey Hole 2 miles; Wells 4 miles; Cheddar 5 miles.

The Somerset village of Westbury-sub-Mendip, boasts a pub and local shops. It nestles beneath the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills half way between Cheddar Gorge and the attractive cathedral city of Wells, both around four miles away. The surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a wealth of scenic footpaths and rugged landscapes, a superb centre for caving and rock climbing, with nearby Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves both offering great days out. Alternatively, Wells, England’s smallest city, with its 13th century cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and twice weekly market is well worth a visit. With the picturesque Somerset levels, as well as mystic Glastonbury also an easy drive away, this attractive area makes a convenient and ideal touring base.
