Find cottages in Somerset

At the heart of the West Country, Somerset''s rolling hills, deep gorges and flowing rivers tell the tales of myths and legends.

From castles, abbeys and museums, to classic English houses and gardens, this is rural England at its best, and with such a wide range of things to see and do, a cottage holiday here provides the perfect base from which to explore the area.

Begin your visit to Somerset by exploring some of the area''s rich heritage, starting off with the enigmatic Glastonbury Tor. Sitting high above the land like a beacon, it holds stories of the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. At the base of the Tor lie the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, set in 36 acres of beautiful parkland and ponds it''s the perfect destination for a family day out. There''s an abundance of historical places in the region so take the time to explore as many as possible, especially Wells Cathedral and the Roman Baths and its museum.

If you can tear yourself away from exploring Somerset''s past there’s a lot more to explore. Longleat Safari Park is just one of the many animal attractions in the area, but you can also get up close and personal with magnificent shire horses birds of prey and marine life.

From the open expanses of gardens and ancient oak woodlands to sparkling rivers and sandy beaches, Somerset is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. There are some great natural wonders to explore and with its steep inclines, dramatic peaks and amazing views, Cheddar Gorge makes an ideal location for walkers, climbers, cavers and sightseers alike. Lazy afternoon picnics can be enjoyed, and there''s a superb selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes cooking up fresh local produce so you can take a night off from cooking. You could even make a night of it and go see a show at the 17th century Theatre Royal in Bath.

    Ref: EXS


    Dating from 1880, Easel Cottage sits on the highest point of South Horrington village, just outside the medieval city of Wells, affording it a superb viewpoint towards King’s Castle Wood.
    In its former function, the cottage was part of the Mendip Hospital, and used as a porter’s lodge and staff quarters. Lovingly brought back to life without losing its original charm, it retains original doors and windows, with the addition of modern comforts.
    Whilst renovating Easel Cottage, the owners have collected some weird and wonderful finds, including unopened 1960s medication, shoes, Victorian glass and hospital meal menus. The cottage was originally attached by a bridge to the main house (Mendip House), which is currently inhabited by the cottage owners. Mendip House is also the home of the owner’s gallery business. The walls of Easel Cottage benefit from housing a selection from the art collection, providing a visually rich, unique style to every room. It is an art lover’s paradise – your own private gallery for the duration, with the works adorning the walls available for purchase. The gallery business’ network of local artists means that the owner can also organise art workshops/activities/instruction if visitors are inclined.
    A short stroll from Easel Cottage will find you in the heart of South Horrington, which between 1848–1991 was the Mendip Hospital. The original hospital was built to house 400 patients and staff. The principal architect was George Gilbert Scott, who is better known for his designs of St Pancras Station and the Albert Memorial in London. Wells Cricket Club is based in South Horrington, with Wells Golf Club’s beautiful 18-hole parkland course at the foot of the village.
    Shrubs, trees and flowers adorn the cottage garden, attracting a myriad of birds which fill the air with birdsong. Situated alongside Easel Cottage, visitors will also have use of the owner’s private Bluebell Wood, and you may be lucky enough to spot the deer that wander through occasionally.
    There are some glorious walks emanating directly from the cottage. Wells Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicar’s Close are 1½ miles away and can be accessed via a picturesque walk running alongside Wells Golf Course. Other routes take the walker past King’s Wood through to Dulcote and Dinder. There is also a good selection of independent restaurants located in Wells.
    Conveniently placed for visits to Glastonbury Abbey and Tor, the beauty of the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves. Within an easy drive, guests can reach the cities of Bath and Bristol, as well as the coastal resorts and sandy beaches at Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea and Brean Sands. Shop and pub within 1 mile.
