    Our host had thought of everything and was extremely helpful in recommending areas of interest in the local area. Our son's favourite part was meeting the baby guinea pigs and walking the llamas!!

    So glad you enjoyed yourselves - there’s certainly loads to see and do in the local area! Hope you’ll all come back again and stay again one day (your son will have to come back again just to see how much the baby guinea pigs have grown!!) Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage, very well presented."

    A great setting, although the exit from the lane to the A road is tricky at both ends (nothing to do with the property). Heartily recommend the property, and the owner is clearly very conscientious about it. Excellent overall.

  • "Glastonberry was a lovely small town with lots of crystals."

    A guided tour of the prison was worth a visit. The house did not disappoint. Beautiful/tastefully decorated. Very comfortable, clean and to a very high standard. The owners have thought of everything. Was great to arrive to a very kind welcome pack. The garden is lovely with swallows/swifts darting around. The bats fly around at night. We used the games room a lot. More than happy to chill in there at night with a glass of wine, music and numerous games of pool. Would definitely recommend! Regards, Wendy Andy.

The property boasts an open-plan living space where guests can take advantage of the self-catering facilities, including a dishwasher, to rustle up an evening meal to enjoy round the dining table as you toast to a wonderful holiday, or alternatively grab some popcorn and enjoy a night in front of the television.

The ground-floor also has a charming snug room which is a great space for guests to watch something with more privacy as they relax after a long day, and a handy utility room with a washing machine and a cloakroom.

Climbing upstairs, there is a spacious landing, a double bedroom with ample storage, a contemporary bathroom, and a bedroom with a raised small single bed and a lower single bed, to comfortably sleep either two children or an adult and a child, and allow flexible sleeping arrangements.

Outside there is private parking on the driveway, a garden with lawn, patio and furniture so you can take your dining al fresco, and an external games room which is a cool space to hang out, for either children or adults, with the bar facilities and pool table.

The property is just a stone's throw away from the gorgeous Harridge Wood West Nature Reserve which is a worthwhile afternoon with a picnic, or take a short drive into Chilcompton to find a shop for any essentials and two pubs, for when you fancy an evening out with your loved ones.

The city of Bath is close by with its historical Abbey, interesting Roman Baths, alongside many other museums and galleries, and great shopping facilities.

In the opposite direction, you can explore the city of Wells which has a captivating Cathedral and The Bishop's Palace and Gardens which is a striking 13th century palace with 14 acres of gardens.

Also, you can discover the popular Longleat Safari Park which boasts a monkey drive thru and an African animal village, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge, all within a 30 minute drive of the property.
