Overview

About the property

Cottage in Cheddar, Somerset, England - Outstanding Views From Cottage Over The Somerset Levels

High on the Mendip Hills, sits a stone cottage on a working farm, with breathtaking views over the Somerset Levels. The cottage was built around 1850 and was formerly occupied by the local shepherd grazing his sheep on this area of the Mendip Hills. Today the land is grazed by the traditional breeds of Longhorn Cattle and Wiltshire Horn Sheep, well suited to managing the natural grassland on the farm. Cheddar Gorge, Site of Special Scientific Interest, lies to the north of the farm and Mascalls’ Wood, an ancient woodland, lies to the west. Cheddar village and local shops are a distance of about 1 mile from the cottage. Ideal for walkers and close to the Mendip Way.

Totally chilled out!!

  • 5 of 5

Found this a lovely quirky cottage to stay in. Fantastic views over Cheddar and being the time of year we found snuggling up to the fire in the evening just perfect. In fact loved it so much that we have booked to go back for a week in June & hopefully enjoy sitting outside & enjoying the views!! The owners Judy & Paul are also very welcoming & helpful & were a delight to meet.

Great Chill Out

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Bradley Cross Farm. The cottage was as we expected cosy & comfortable. The setting is beautiful with views and peace to die for. We were made to feel very welcome by Paul & Judy and welcomed their knowledge of the area. We had a soft spot for the dogs particularly bracken who charlie is missing :(

We had many walks in the area sometimes a little too far but so nice to come back to the cottage to rest and recoup ready for the next day. Hope to come back some day.
