Crook Peak is a detached Country Cottage built from local stone and Oak Lintels, which has views of Crook Peak (meaning “bent hilltop”) on top of the Mendips which features prominently in the short distance at an impressive 628 feet high. It is set within the grounds of an old farm and a Stone Barn which after being converted by the previous owner, is now our house.
Crook Peak is a comfortable and welcoming stone Cottage with old wooden beams, a traditional wood burner, Leather high back Chesterfield settee and chairs in the lounge, modern kitchen with recently laid solid oak floor, large bedrooms with two luxury shower rooms, all insulated throughout for your extra comfort. No wide angle lens have been used to make it look larger just more photos to allow you to get a true size. You will be surrounded by the chorus of the song birds, rarely heard in the cities
The stylish, cherry wood and oak floored kitchen is fitted with all high quality mod cons for you to enjoy which overlooks the secluded sun drenched rear garden with patio area and pretty tiered rockery.
It is surrounded by open fields and woodlands to the rear of Crook Peak Cottage for you to walk out onto from the doors at your leisure, enjoying the clean fresh air, a large pond to the side and a Dutch barn to the front. As the air is so pure having been filtered by the Atlantic from the Gulf Stream, you will find yourself having very long deep sleeps-many of our guests find themselves dozing in the afternoon also!
As it is on one level, the property is also suitable for guests with limited mobility.
The property is fully set up for holiday letting and includes all bedlinen, towels, cleaning materials, cooking utensils and cookware. We are on site so can greet you and answer any questions about the property or location and then leave you to enjoy your stay that starts with a welcome cuppa and home-made cakes. Any problems/questions whilst staying can be quickly resolved with us.
The property is tucked away so you can enjoy the seclusion of the area or you are free to roam our vast property of 4 acres to enjoy our ducks/chickens and outdoor games equipment in our garden with a swing, slide and trampoline or roam in the 80+ Acres of fields and woodlands.
Close by are the facilities of the Webbington Hotel, and a trip to enjoy the spa/gym is included in your stay.
We run two other holiday homes as well, Mendips View which is attached to our home in North Somerset, 1031814 and now we have purchased a large holiday home in the Harbour of Polperro in Cornwall 1077272.
An extract from the review left by our visitor:
My wife and I stayed at Crook Peak cottage early May this year. My wife is disabled and has severe mobility issues, she uses a wheelchair most of the time but is able to walk short distances using aids and a helping hand. As Crook Peak cottage is all on one level my wife found it relatively easy to get around inside without having to use her wheelchair.
There is a large wide hallway just inside the front door with plenty of room for coats, shoes and a wheelchair storage. The internal doors opened wide, no obstructions behind them, so my wife was able to walk through them with no real difficulties.
The lounge furniture is sturdy and the armchairs have strong arms to them which enabled my wife to feel secure when using the arms to push herself up to stand. We always take two sets of “elephant feet” with us on holiday, these enable me to raise an armchair and to raise a bed. Making the armchair higher also makes standing up and sitting down easier for my wife. She found the leather chair to be very comfortable and supporting for her spine.
My wife used the double bed which was raised on a set of “elephant feet”. Without raising the bed it would have been difficult for my wife to get up from the bed. She found the mattress to be very comfortable and by folding a duvet to make a leg support for her, she slept very well.
The bathroom just along a hallway from the bedroom with the double bed was the only one my wife used. I had to move a dining chair into the bathroom so that she could sit and use the basin in the bathroom (I must get round to buying a folding perching stool for holidays) however, the room is large enough so that I could leave the chair in the bathroom all the time. The toilet seat is lower than what my wife is used to but it is not so low as to cause her major difficulties, I didn’t have to ‘rescue’ her from the toilet at all during our stay.
We didn’t try using the wheelchair inside the cottage however, I suspect that the doors would be wide enough to allow for a wheelchair. We will try the wheelchair out the next time we stay, you may have to consider building a ramp Gary!
Overall, we managed very well at the cottage. Gary and Heather were extremely helpful and had no problem with helping me when I asked for assistance. I would recommend the cottage to anyone else who suffers with mobility problems.
Gary and Heather have known each other since ours school days. We moved here to beautiful Criston/Loxton in 2003 with our family from our `small 1930`s semi to this vast space and we love it! We (Gary and Heather) have slowly been physically bringing it all up to a higher standard having re-roofed it fairly recently along with many other maintenance in between our full time jobs.
Our house, Hamwood Park was converted around 1985 from a Barn with its surrounding buildings.
We enjoy views of fantastic countryside, love the peace and quiet and the fact that we can enjoy the fantastic clear skies at night, no street lights, people returning noisily from the pub or passing traffic keeping you awake. If you want peace and quiet, then this is the place for you along with the very clean pure air blown across the Atlantic from the Gulf of Medico which will give you a very good deep sleep.
Also we are lucky enough to rent out a Victorian property overlooking the sea based, in the Historic harbour of Polperro, Cornwall. The photo above was taken recently in Polperro
Crook Peak Cottage was originally used for breeding of horses by our previous owner. As we are not `horsey` we decided to convert. It is now a comfortable holiday accommodation enabling other people to come and share the fantastic scenery and local sights that we see each day.
Walk out of the back or front door and you are within about twenty steps of eighty plus acres of fields and onwards with views of the rolling hills of the Mendips.
You will come across many forms of wildlife (apart from our animals) that wander around freely. These being many forms of Deer, Badgers, Rabbits, Fox`s etc which are all overseen by many forms of birds only found in rural places - all on your door step!
We were so impressed with our builders that converted our other holiday let Mendips View, that we got them to re build Crook Peak cottage. Built at the edge of our land, you have total privacy but we are on hand if you wish to ask for any help or advise on how to spend your time in Somerset. The property is built to a high standard, cosy and all one level with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
If you like street lights, cars driving past and noisy passers by, then this not the place for you. You will be surrounded by all the things you`d expect in the open countryside plus peace and quiet from urban noise pollution. The air was tested by our solicitors upon purchase, to be told that it is extremely pure which means you will have good quality sleep. The reason being that the air has travelled across the Atlantic from the Gulf Stream being cleansed along the way which is then funnelled up the Bristol Channel bringing its warmth also.
Parking? Space for at least twelve, plus more in front of the barn.
Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with doorstep access to 40 acres of fantastic countryside but only minutes away from the golden sands and town of Weston Super Mare.

Storage for bikes, golf equipment and stabling for horses is available, as is ample parking. We are also pet friendly.

Travel south and explore Exmoor national park or Dartmoor national park or closer still, the Mendips Hills, which has the West Mendip Way which was featured on Countryfile BBC nature programme, that runs behind our property.
As we are so centrally located in the South West of England, why not explore for the day, and try the coastline of Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer, Brixham in South Devon or even Dorset, searching for fossils on the Jurassic (Dinosaur) coast or just taking in the sights. Another short time takes you into Cornwall, with many sandy beaches with their own micro climates, historic sites of tin mining and excellent surfing on patrolled life guarded beaches and of course the traditional Cornish Pasty. Come closer to home to sample Medieval not restored sites at Tyntesfield National Trust in Wraxall or Dunster Castle. Also nearby is Caldicot Castle to which runs Medieval Banquets open to the public.

Another option is to shop in Cardiff, Wales within the walls of Historic Cardiff Castle. Hop on the train at Worle, Weston Super Mare to Bath, London, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
For those seeking adventure, try cycling, walking, climbing in Cheddar Gorge, caving, horse riding, sailing at Axbridge Lake, jet skiing, coarse fishing at the many local lakes and rivers. sea fishing from Weston Super Mare Pier or from the Victorian Pier in the Victorian town of Clevedon, which has appeared in many films including, The Remains of the Day with Anthony Hopkins and recently Keira Knightly in Never Let Me Go and even more recently again, Broadchurch. Finally for golf which you can arrange through local providers. With golf, we are spoilt with the huge choice of excellent 18 hole golf courses, Isle of Wedmore a ten minute drive, Burnham and Berrow being our coastal most challenging county venue. Race courses include Taunton, Chepstow, Exeter and Cheltenham all within easy travelling distance. There are a few local `Farmers airstrips` and airfields of Dunkeswell for those wanting to Aviate, with Bristol Airport being 9 miles away. We have a safe, excellent amount of acreage with an easy approach zone for those wanting to arrive by helicopter with safe secluded parking.
For culture, Bristol Hippodrome, The Colston Hall, The Weston Playhouse and The Brewhouse theatre all provide live shows or music offering a huge variety of different events to suit all tastes. Then why not dine out at one of the Michelin star restaurants?
For the children, nearby is Bristol Zoo, Noahs Ark Animal park, Court Farm, Puxton Park, Longleat Safari Park, Center Parcs and Crealy adventure, Woodland Adventure park to name but a few great days out. Go less than two hours, and you could go to Legoland near Windsor Castle or hit the sights of London, fully taking in all the history of Royalty and The Beefeater Guards.
Of course, there is relaxation! With the local stunning views to enjoy in the peace and quiet of our Country Cottages and possibly a massage at the local spa just down the hill from us at the Webbington Hotel. One final option to share with you is a helicopter flight with the owner so that you can view the stunning surrounding area from the skies. This of course would be at an additional cost if you are interested. We hope to hear from you and hope that you come and share our lovely location with us soon.
