This unusual yet comfortable cottage has been lovingly converted and is surrounded by fields and countryside.

Shared use of outdoor heated swimming pool (May to Sept)

These well-presented, unusual and comfortable holiday properties consist of a self-contained, ground floor wing of the owner’s detached, 19th-century home, set within its own grounds, and a detached cottage, set within the owner’s grounds. They have been lovingly converted from former farm buildings, and are surrounded by fields and countryside, which abound with wild life and bird life. Located adjacent to a working farm, this is an excellent, quiet location to explore and enjoy the diversity of attractions in the area.

    We only had a long week-end at Upside Down Cottage and would have liked to stay for a few more days. We shall certainly put it on our properties list to re-visit in the future when we are next visiting our family.

    The cottage is spacious and well decorated. There is plenty of space to park outside. The upstairs is open plan with pleasant seating area, dining area and a well equipped kitchen. The cottage is about three miles from Glastonbury and within driving distance of Bath, Wells and Stonehenge. Our stay was a very pleasant one the owners are welcoming

    A lovely cottage set in a wonderful central location. The house was very clean and extremely well-equipped - it had everything we needed both in the kitchen & the rest of the house. Plenty of towels, tea-towels, cutlery & knives, plates etc. Even washing up liquid, scourer, and shower gel. Tea, coffee, sugar. And milk & wine in the fridge on arrival! Fantastic. (We have stayed in some places which were so sparsely furnished/equipped we have had to go and buy a kitchen knife & spoons & a tea-towel & oven gloves....) A great selection of books & games are provided. And the swimming pool is a joy to use, clean and private. The owners are so kind & helpful, couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay, and are a fount of local knowledge. Thank you for a great holiday.

    The bed mattress is spring and uncomfortable, there is 1 tiny queen bed and 2 single beds, not ideal for couple. We felt imposing when using the pool, the renter home is just 3 meters away.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- We were very shocked to read your comments. The bed is not advertised as being any particular size and it is simply a double bed which, in our view, is perfectly suitable for a couple. The two single beds are both full size singles, and nowhere does it say that they are suitable to be pushed together to use as a double. The mattresses are all in good condition and comfort is personal preference. I do not understand about your comment regarding the swimming pool. This is advertised as a shared facility, and it is located in our private garden. However, when our guests are using the pool we leave them alone so that they have their own private time in there, our home is at least 50 metres from the pool.
