Overview

About the property

Cottage nr Wells, Somerset, England - Convenient For Access To Wells, Cheddar, Glastonbury, Bath & The Coast

Set in the heart of the lush green Somerset countryside between the popular tourist centres of Wells and Cheddar, Honeyhurst Farm is situated in an idyllic location with lovely views over the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Somerset Levels. Open fields surround the Farm complex providing an idyllic private, quiet (with the odd ‘moo’ or ‘bah’) rural location. The spacious, farm cottage sleeps 4 and offers 800 sq. ft. (75 sq. m) of living space. It has been converted from a single storey stone farm building, formerly used as a cider store in bygone times and has been equipped to a very high standard. The accommodation has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, with a lounge, large kitchen/dining room, shower over bath room, entrance porch and a small conservatory with French doors opening onto a south west facing sun terrace with charcoal barbecue, table and chairs.

About Kathy Longhurst

We are Kathy and Don, retired, and we live in Honeyhurst farmhouse. Kathy will be available most days to provide advice and assistance as and when required. We have two friendly Bearded Collie dogs and two micro pigs. Our cider apple orchard is home to some sheep at various times of the year to keep the grass in order. We are keen gardeners and open our garden to the public in support of the charities sponsored under the National Gardens Scheme.

Kathy Longhurst purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why Kathy Longhurst chose Mendip (Glastonbury)

Work brought Don to Somerset from Berkshire. We bought the property because of its peaceful and beautiful setting with its babbling brook, mature trees and views of Mendip Hills & the Somerset levels. The property is set back from a quiet country lane on the fringe of the villages of Rodney Stoke and Draycott with their two pubs, two churches and a village shop. We renovated the holiday cottage as much for others to enjoy as for a business and have been rewarded by meeting many interesting people.

Since moving here we have been impressed by the number and variety of activities and places of varied interests there are here about. Visitors continue to add to the collection of brochures in the cottage. We have also been impressed by the quality of food in pubs/restaurants and on offer by local producers.

What makes this bungalow unique

Honeyhurst is ideal for exploring the many interesting local villages such as historic Axbridge with its village square and King John’s Hunting Lodge, Priddy on the Mendips with its village green and there is genteel Wedmore with its up-market shops. The nearby towns of Cheddar with its famous gorge and caves, Medieval Wells is England’s smallest city with its magnificent 12th and 13th century cathedral and bishops palace. Wells continues to attract film makers and is frequently used as the backdrop for TV productions. Bath is a World Heritage Site, with its Roman Baths, Abbey, Georgian buildings, Theatre Royal, rugby ground and shopping. Glastonbury is famed for its early English Christian history, its ruined 12th century Benedictine Abbey, its attraction for alternative heath, wellbeing and beliefs and its annual pop festival. It also has a large and much photographed local conical hill with a tower on top known as the Tor with its connections to the legendary King Arthur.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you once again for a wonderful holiday (our 10th time in 8 years). Once again we have enjoyed the peace & beauty of your home and garden. The amazing weather has been a bonus – sun every day and the trees coming out in leaf. Looking forward to coming back.
