Situated in the beautiful Somerset countryside with panoramic views of the Mendip Hills and Glastonbury Tor. This well-appointed lodge is set down a quiet lane within the grounds of the owner’s home and makes a perfect retreat.

The little kitchen is cleverly fitted at one end of the living space with an electric oven and a two ring hob, fridge and microwave. Perfect for cooking a lazy breakfast in bed, or a light supper. From here enter the pretty double bedroom. Sleep tight with your faces glowing from a day in the salty sea air, or a brisk countryside walk. The shower room has a wet room shower and a WC.

Venture outside onto the decking with your morning coffee and relax and soak up the views over the cottage garden and the Mendips. It is also a perfect place to enjoy a BBQ, or cuddle up under a blanket whilst watching the sun go down. At the bottom of the garden enjoy views of the famous Glastonbury Tor.

Compact but comfortable accomodation which was clean, warm and dry. Excellent location - peaceful and secluded but within easy reach of a range of attractions - Wells, Cheddar, the coast etc. We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week here.

We really enjoyed our stay in this small, sweet, well-appointed cabin, surrounded by a well-tended and beautiful garden. Sarah was a great hostess. We were touched by the welcome gifts.

Clean, comfortable and comprehensively equipped with everything the visitor might need - and more, including a bottle of wine in the fridge. The tastefully planted gravel garden is a pleasant place to sit and a gate opens directly into a huge field, where our dog enjoyed wading through the wild flowers Hide
