* Our Paddock has lots of rare cowslips

* We have three ponds that are abundantly supplied with newts, including the endangered great crested newt

* We have solar panels and a biomas boiler.

For Garden Lovers: Cossington Park's own gardens have some interesting features:

• An old and extremely rare species of Chinese Elm, brought here by the Owner's ancestors from China, believed to be the only one of its type and age in the UK (the UK's most eminent tree experts have been unable to match it exactly to any known species)

• A wide variety of old English apples trees

• Several ponds with great crested newts

• Rare cowslips

• A fine clump of lime trees

In addition there are many gardens open to the public within a day's visit from Cossington Park.

We stayed in the cottage it was amazing and we didn't want to go home. Lovely spacious cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the lighting all through kids and 2 chihuahuas loved the garden and play area. Easy to get to burnham and weston and a visit to Glastonbury which we fell in love with. Had food at the Red tile pub in the village fabulous and also the knowle inn. We'd so recommend this cottage in cossington we didn't want to go home. Will be saving hard to come back. We loved it so much.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely converted place to stay. Couldn't really fault it other than lack of soap on arrival and due to the location no phone signal. That's not an issue but when you have no wifi it is! I would only return if I had a wifi dongle that I knew would work or they installed wifi! I would have gladly paid more for wifi! Overall very good though

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. You were one of our first guests at our newly converted cottage and we have since be able to install WiFi and a landline. We do hope to welcome you back for another visit in the near future. Kindest Regards Lorraine

Excellent stay in a gorgeous Somerset cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have a brilliant family weekend away at Park Cottage. Facilities far surpassed our expectations with a private garden but also use if the estate grounds complete with play area, football pitch and indoor table tennis. Gorgeous welcome pack full of locally sourced goodies. Decorated to a high standard with really comfy beds. Highly recommend.
