Jessie’s Cottage is the end property of a traditional period Somerset long house. Recently refurbished, but retaining the original character. Sleeps 4-5 in 2 bedrooms. Positioned in the peaceful village of Rodney Stoke at the foot of the Mendip Hills, convenient for Cheddar (3 miles) and the beautiful cathedral city of Wells (4 miles). The closest large cities are Bristol and Bath, less than 1 hour’s drive across the Mendips. The village of Rodney Stoke has remained little changed over the years. The church is 11th Century and well supported, as is the local pub, both within easy walking distance from the cottage. The area is popular with walkers and cyclists. The Mendip Way passes close by. There are many other designated walks over the Mendips and south to Glastonbury and the Somerset Levels.

About Lisa Lewis-Yallop (on behalf of Irene & Derek Paget)
My wife and I have owned property in the Cheddar area for many years. We have recently sold our interiors business, but are still involved in design projects. We have indulged and spared no expense on this project and the result is stunning. We have been involved in letting holiday properties for many years. We go to great lengths to provide friendly customer care and ensure that our guests are greeted by a high standard of accommodation.
Why Lisa Lewis-Yallop (on behalf of Irene & Derek Paget) chose Cheddar
Jessie’s Cottage is positioned at the foot of the Mendip Hills, in the midst of beautiful countryside. There are lovely walks and a local pub very close by. The accommodation has recently been totally refurbished to a very high standard, incorporating the most modern appliances, within a cosy character cottage. You can enjoy log fires, fabulous walks and friendly village life. The property has excellent road transport links and is convenient for Cheddar Caves and Gorge, as well as the ancient market City of Wells.
