Mill Batch Cottage is an 18th century holiday cottage, situated on the edge of the village of Mark, situated in the heart of the famous Somerset Levels, and in the shadow of the Mendip Hills. It was originally built as a cattle barn sometime in the 1780s, but in 1819 it was converted into a cottage by William Counsell - hence the inscription ’WC 1819’ on the outside, and ’WC’ above the old fireplace, which often amuses visitors! The property has been refurbished in 2019 with new furniture and appliances, but still retains many of the original features; the low wooden beam over the front entrance, oak beamed ceiling, and the original fireplace, now with a wood burner for extra cosiness. The name Mill Batch (shared with the owner’s home, adjacent to the cottage) comes from the fact that the property is about fifty feet above sea level (high for the Somerset levels!). This makes it the ideal place for a windmill, and one was built here in the early 18th century. The lane next to the property leads to the Hamlet of Perry, named after pear cider, which would have been made there. Cider apple trees still run alongside the property and in the orchard next door. Sheep often graze here, wandering amongst the dappled light. The garden of the cottage, though small, borders the owners much larger garden, 1.4 acres. Both are packed with wildlife, as are the surrounding areas, including the Avalon Marshes, Mark village has a fine 16th century church, village stores and two pubs both serving food. Shop ½ mile, pub ¼ mile.

    Lovely cottage... We always try to go for an older, quirky property, and this cottage was perfect. Warm and cosy... And loved the added log burner which we lit each evening. Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and deceptively spacious rooms. Good location for visits to Street, Bristol, Cribbs, Taunton and Weston. We enjoyed our stay... Wished we had been able to stay longer... It even stopped raining !

    Lovely cottage in a great location. Very well equipped. The log burner made sure it was warm and cozy and the small welcome pack of scones and clotted cream was a lovely touch.

    Nice original features. Double room rather small. Did not expect so close to owners building, heard comings and goings. Fast road sometimes noisy. Gate to Perry Lane not suitable for small dogs but just needs further fencing. Enjoyed our short stay.

    The owners have spent time and money creating a very comfortable cottage. The lounge furniture provides a family with space and luxury to relax together and enjoy quality time.

    We really enjoyed a short break at Millbatch. A great location for exploring Cheddar and surrounding area and the coast at Burnham. The local pubs were excellent and we had a lovely meal at the Whitehorse while we were there. The cottage was cosy and but spacious and we had a great welcome from Stephen on arrival - with scones delivered too! Will visit again and highly recommend.
