About the property

Cottage in Prestleigh, Nr Evercreech, Somerset, England - Stunning Cottage Located Down A Peaceful Country Lane

Evergreen Cottage is a natural stone building completed in early 2013 and adjoins the owners main property. The cottage offers high quality fixtures and fittings throughout which gives it a real 'home from home' feeling. The cottage benefits from underfloor heating which is complimented by a real log burning fire, perfect for those cosy nights having explored all that Somerset has to offer. Upstairs the large bedroom has an ensuite bathroom whilst downstairs the open plan living provides cosy sofas and armchairs to make the most of the open fire. The living area is separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar, a great area to sit, enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down and the evening meal is prepared. An ideal location from which to explore Somerset the cottage is a 5 minute walk from the Bath & West Showground. The historic city of Wells and Bruton are short drive. The surrounding area offers great walking and cycling.

About Rob Wass

In June 2013 we completed construction of Evergreen Cottage which adjoins the main house (Evergreen House) The original part of the house dates back to 1852 and bears origin back to the 'Little Jack' Horner family.

We hope visitors staying at Evergreen Cottage relax and unwind and enjoy all that Somerset has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Why Rob Wass chose Evercreech

Our property is located down a peaceful country lane in the small hamlet of Prestleigh. Stepping out of the front door we can follow the stream up the lane and into the glorious Somerset Countryside. Yet with a short drive we are in the historic City of Wells the smallest city in England. With its magnificent cathedral Wells still retains many independent shops, restaurants, pubs and twice weekly farmers market. Heading in the other direction we have Bruton and Castle Cary great places to wonder around and explore at leisure.

What makes this cottage unique

Evergreen Cottage is the perfect place for couples wanting to 'escape to the country'. It is superbly equipped and finished to the highest standard offering a luxurious and relaxing stay any time of the year.

The cottage is ideally located for visiting the Bath & West showground which has events on all year round.

There are many walks right on our doorstep from gentle strolls on the Somerset Levels through to all day hikes on the Mendip Hills. For the more adventurous Cheddar Gorge offers caving and climbing for people of all abilities.

With the bus link from the Bath & West showground to Worthy Farm Evergreen Cottage is the perfect place to stay during the Glastonbury Festival for those who no longer want to endure the camping and infamous festival toilet facilities.

Cosy and well furbished cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is cosy and has everything you need, thought has gone in to making sure you are comfortable in your stay. The owners have even taken the time to provide recommendations for what to do and where to eat which is very helpful. The location is perfect, quiet and peaceful but not too far from the nearest towns. Rob and Naomi were very welcoming and we would definitely love to visit again
