About the property

Luxury 3 bed, Dog & Family friendly close to Wells, Bath & Glastonbury!

CHURCH COTTAGE is a luxury 3 bedroom, Baby, Family & Pet friendly holiday cottage comfortably accommodating six (6) people in the beautiful Somerset hamlet of Ashwick, deep in the heart of the stunning Mendips - an area of natural outstanding beauty.

We’re BABY & TODDLER friendly supplying everything you need during your stay - bath tub, sterlizer, baby monitor, stroller with rain and cosi-toes, stair gates, high chair, travel cot with bedding, potty, seat and step plus all you need at the dining table.

This peaceful location is a true escape and sanctuary. This self catering cottage gives a wonderful sense of calm, quiet and relaxation within a warm, amenity-filled holiday home together with space and facilities for all your family and friends to enjoy.

You can settle into the cosy TV room watching your favourite show either on WIFI connected Sky, Apple TV or DVD with a roaring fire to add to the cosiness. If you're after something a bit more peaceful, there's the Snug. A really comfortable room with its own fireplace for you to read or to just sit back, relax and listen to your favourite music on our Sonos system.

The large kitchen was recently renovated and is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and built in oven and hob. 6 people fit very comfortably around the large pine table and we supply a high chair for our younger guests. A Nespresso machine is supplied for our coffee lovers.

Upstairs each of the three bedrooms have superb views to the south, overlooking uninterrupted views over the rolling fields and beyond. The Master bedroom has a large king size bed, bedroom two has a comfy double brass bed and the third is made up with two large single brass beds. Each of the beds has a plump, feathered mattress topper and a choice of feather or hyper-allergenic pillows, feather duvets and all linens are quality Egyptian cotton guaranteeing you a restful nights sleep. This coupled with its very quiet location means you really will be rested throughout your stay. We provide a travel cot for our younger guests that can be easily set-up in any of the rooms. A newly renovated family bathroom with fluffy towels, bath and powerful shower completes the upstairs.

Church Cottage is kept warm and toasty during the cooler months with oil central heating throughout and for that extra bit of cosiness two open fires will help warm up your cockles with plenty of room for the dogs to stretch out in front of. We coppice our logs from our own woods so we offer a good supply so you'll never go cold.

A boot room with a washing machine, dryer and cloakroom gives you that extra space to hang your coats and boots out of the way.

The gardens are stunning and can be enjoyed while sitting around the outside table, with uninterrupted views stretching ahead. You'll immediately feel embraced by its privacy and seclusion. Church Cottage is pet friendly, the garden is fenced in and secure plus the back door has a dog flap for smaller dogs. A gas Weber BBQ is there for you to cook up a storm and the use of Ashwick Court's tennis courts next door are for those who need to burn off some competitive energy, racquets and balls are supplied.

Church Cottage is surrounded by public footpaths so you can enjoy the many beautiful walks in the immediate area. There is private parking for two cars, but three can also fit if you double park.

Oakhill is just a mile or so up the road with its award winning pub, the Oakhill Inn where they serve delicious home cooked food in a very relaxed pub setting and offer some fabulous local cider and ales.

The Mendip Inn is also located a mile in the other direction at Gurney Slade. It is a contemporary pub that offers an a la cart menu, great Sunday lunches and a good vegetarian selection. The local post office is also located at Gurney Slade.

A local secret is Mr Gillard in his converted ambulance, who can deliver you all of your groceries to your front door every Wednesday.

Tesco’s is in Shepton Mallet, while Waitrose and Morrisons are within easy reach located in the nearby historic city of Wells.

There are plenty of villages, towns and sites to keep you busy within Somerset. Just to give you a taster, Glastonbury is a hippy town full of colourful characters and eclectic shops, a trip up to the Tor is a must with stunning views over the Levels and surrounding countryside. Historic Wells is our smallest city, the cathedral is breathtaking and the markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays offer you lots of local fare. Bath is only a 30 minute drive and is famed for it's historic Georgian architecture and Roman Baths. Frome is easily reachable for something vintage and unique, Catherine's Hill is like a trip back in time with it's vintage shops, mixed with local artisans and delicious cafes and restaurants. Our website offers a comprehensive guide with lots of hidden gems, that only the locals know about to give you a true taste of Somerset!

A week before your stay, I will send you an email detailing all of the information you will need to access Church Cottage, contact details of our house Manager who will be on call if you need anything and directions to the cottage. Church Cottage is stand alone so you have total privacy and the full run of the property and gardens. We are very willing to organise anything you or your guests may need ahead of your stay, so please just ask.

About Monique Leonard

Our family have lived overseas for many years and came to Somerset by chance in 2010 and can't quite believe our luck. It's such a beautiful area with so much to do and see, we just love it!

Monique Leonard purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Monique Leonard chose Radstock

Church Cottage was in a very sorry state when we first acquired it, but after a thorough renovation it now shines and is ready to be enjoyed and shared with our visitors to this stunning location.

What makes this cottage unique

Church Cottage emulates peace and quiet due to its rural setting though close enough to the many fabulous attractions in the surrounding area.

The cottage and location were beautiful, with a great view from all bedroom windows. There was a lovely field with sheep and rolling hills in front of the cottage and nearby public walkways. The cottage was comfy with plenty of space for our group of five adults and was kept very clean. We really enjoyed the fireplaces, thank you for the wood and providing all the amenities we needed. If we are ever visiting this area again we will be sure to stay here!

A wonderful, well-equipped country cottage in the beautiful Mendip hills

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cosy, beautiful Cottage, very well equipped (tabs for the dishwasher, towels for the dog, a yummy welcome package, ...), with a lovely garden that is safe for the dog, and great views. Very convenient for Bath and other trips. We had a great time and enjoyed the English countrylife!

A lovely, peaceful place offering facilities that appeal to young and old alike

  • 4 of 5

The whole family enjoyed their stay very much: The cottage is set in beautiful surroundings, peaceful with plenty of space to relax both inside and out. There are facilities to keep the whole family entertained the tennis court being especially appealing to some members of the family! A real highlight for the family was the spacious kitchen diner facilitating daily opportunities to spend evenings round the table, eating, talking and sharing. Church Cottage is a lovely, warm and inviting place to stay. It's facilities offer much that appeals to young and old alike and it is a place we would take delight in returning to for a further stay in the future.
