About the property

Cossington Park

Cossington Park which has extensive and beautifully maintained gardens – suiting all ages . Totally secluded yet just a short walk from the village pub, it makes an excellent base from which to explore (see location).

There is a large well equipped country kitchen/diner/sitting room which opens out on to decking and a private garden. There is furniture to dine al fresco and a barbecue.

* We nurture some special trees;

* We keep a wild garden at the end of our paddock, which is loved by butterflies;

* 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.

About Lorraine Millward

My name is Lorraine Bentley and I manage the marketing and guest care for the Owner Graham Wason. Cossington Park is his ancestral home and much loved. He now lives in Denmark and London but regularly visits Cossington Park. He reinvests any income back into the property to preserve it for future generations.

Lorraine Millward purchased this cottage in 1600

This much loved ancestral home is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the 22 acres of gardens and grounds. There is plenty to keep children busy and we well come family pets to! Adults can unwind in luxurious surroundings or we can arrange falconry, archery, ballooning to mention but a few things or maybe beauty treatments for a pamper session. Catering is also available on request.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique location on the Somerset Levels. Surrounded by stunning scenery and close to Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury, Wells and Burnham on Sea.

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

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.
