Our holiday cottage, situated in the ancient and picturesque mid-Somerset village of Croscombe halfway between the mediaeval city of Wells (1½ miles) and the market town of Shepton Mallet (1½ miles), is the perfect holiday home from which to enjoy the many attractions this beautiful area has to offer. This gorgeous cottage, which dates back to the 17th century, has an abundance of period features and traditional English country charm. This is tastefully combined with the provision of all the modern conveniences that you would expect to find in a 5 star cottage. The standard of the accommodation reflects our very high expectations of quality, cleanliness, attention to detail and service. Our charming holiday cottage is in a beautiful rural location; lots of fresh air, farmland and farm animals with great walks and country pubs on the doorstep - always a good combination for keeping children, and parents (!) amused. The cottage sleeps 4 (plus cots) in two bedrooms comprising 1 with king size double bed, and the other which can either be made up as a super king size double, or with 2 twin single beds. The cottage is therefore ideal for both families with children, or for couples trying to escape them! Children of all ages are welcome. A travel cot is provided (if required), as well as stair-gates and high chair. We provide an essentials baby box - just in case you forget anything - as well as a baby-changing mat and baby bath. There is also toy box and a selection of games, jigsaws, books and DVDs. The cottage has gas central heating and free Wi-Fi. Towels are provided, as well as tea towels, toiletries, quality bed linen and an initial supply of logs for the fire to take the edge off the chilly evenings. We also provide a welcome basket containing tea, coffee, milk, sugar and cake. There are 2 parking spaces for the exclusive use of guests in the courtyard to the right of the cottage. Behind the courtyard, a small flight of steps leads to the private garden. The well-established walled garden includes lawned areas, herbaceous borders and a south-facing patio, ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining. We also provide a barbecue and a supply of charcoal.
The village pub, ‘The George Inn’ is just 150 yards walk from the cottage and offers a friendly welcome, roaring log fires in the winter and relaxing beer garden with children’s area in the warmer months. This CAMRA award winning pub serves quality food prepared from the best fresh, local ingredients, cooked to order. All food is homemade, including the delicious puddings and ice creams. Organic, vegetarian, game and fresh fish specials complement the regular menu. Special dietary needs are catered for too. There is also a great selection of other country pubs nearby serving excellent, locally sourced food, not to mention the vast choice of eateries just a short drive away in Wells or Bath.
