Property Description

In a tranquil rural setting which affords easy access to the delights Somerset has to behold, this is one of three attractive properties comprising Double House Farm (refs EMN, EMO, EMP) that have been developed from stone buildings to provide accommodation of a high standard. Each is equipped with quality furnishings and fittings, and enjoys its own garden with patio in which to unwind well away from the pressures of everyday life. An ideal choice for families, they stand upon the owners’ farm; guests may explore at leisure the beautiful 6-acre grounds or enjoy use of the games room, complete with table tennis, snooker table and a selection of toys – there are even children’s and adults’ bicycles available. There are some lovely days out to be had in the vicinity; admire the gothic cathedral in the pretty town of Wells, marvel at the impressive caverns at Cheddar Gorge and Wooky Hole Caves, or explore the many footpaths which lead through the Mendip Hills and Exmoor National Park (also offering excellent pony-trekking terrain). There are a number of historic houses and gardens to visit locally, including Stourhead and Montacute (NT), and Longleat and Sherborne. Excellent beach at Weston-Super-Mare and water sports facilities at Chew Valley Lake. Glastonbury Tor is just 3 miles away, with a good variety of shops and restaurants, and the beautiful heritage city of Bath is accessible for day trips. Village shop/P.O and pub 1 mile.

  1. The property was delightful and a very well designed conversion. Every aspect was excellent and my Mother who is 101 especially appreciated the bathroom equipped for the disabled. We revelled in the peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings. The icing on the cake was our hostess, who could not have been more amiable and helpful. May 2012.
  2. The cottage was fantastic - really well lead out for our disabled daughter and full of many little touches that you do not normally find in holiday cottages. The games room and bikes kept our other children amused , giving us more time to relax. April 2012.
  3. Fantastic accommodation,very well maintained. Very thoughtful owner. Games room really good. April 2012.

  9. This was one of the best cottages we have stayed in, it was really well appointed and there were lots of lovely extra touches, such as fresh flowers, coffee and tea, fresh bread and milk and so on.

Coupled with the best weather of the year so far it was a wonderful stay. May 2010.
