About Caroline Wood

Caroline is a photographer focusing mainly on weddings and portraits. Her family have lived in Somerset for over thirty years. She enjoys the garden, the countryside and walking the dog!

Caroline Wood purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Caroline Wood chose Mendip (Glastonbury)

Somerset is a beautiful county with great variety. It offers great contrasts from the wild, flat areas of the levels and Exmoor to the higher grounds of The Mendips, The Quantocks and The Blackdown Hills. It has picturesque villages and wonderfully remote country lanes but not far away are the cities of Bath and Bristol with their own history and sites to see. In Somerset the pace of life can seem slower and the climate gentle. It is a rural county with many diverse industries, be it cider making, basket weaving or cheese!

What makes this cottage unique

The property is in a peaceful location backing onto lovely countryside with walks from the doorstep. It is close by many places of interest, most especially Glastonbury with The Tor and ruined Abbey and the city of Wells with its magnificent Cathedral, Bishops Palace and Vicar's Close. This area of Somerset offers exciting landscapes like Cheddar Gorge and Ebbor Gorge and Burrington Combe. There are country houses and beautiful gardens to visit. The famous Stourhead is close by so too Lytes Cary and Montacute House. Then there is the completely different landscape of the Somerset Levels rich in History and wild life. It is a land of myths and legends and it is a county famous for its Cheddar cheese, its cider, its caves and its carnivals.

Lovely little place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our anniversary and it was lovely. Very clean and very modern inside and rustic looking from the outside. Had everything you could need for cooking and staying in and was round the corner from a nice pub and only 10 minutes from Glastonbury and Wells. Plenty to do near by too. Caroline was very helpful with suggestions for us too.

Perfect retreat for a quiet new year

  • 5 of 5

The Summer House was even better in th flesh than the pictures and I was impressed with the photos!

As many guests before us said, Caroline has put a lot of thought to every detail which made it a beautiful holiday destination.

I was a little apprehensive booking a summer house for 30.12.16-2.1.17 due to temperature but the underfloor heating was so luxurious and cosy we were fine!

We could not fault it at all and would love to be back again soon.

Thank you

The Perfect Summerhouse

  • 5 of 5

The Summerhouse was perfect , the holiday property you always hope to find but seldom do . We spent a wonderful week exploring Somerset and even the weather was great .

The Summerhouse is set in lovely gardens and is screened from the main house .

Caroline was a wonderful host and we recommend this property without hesitation .

The local pub is only a few minutes walk away and serves very good food .

Thank you Caroline .

clean, calm and restful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 4 days at Caroline's Summerhouse and loved everything about our stay. The interior is stylish and practical, equipped with all you would need for your stay. Loved it's proximity to Glastonbury where we met friends to eat at great restaurants, Gigi's Pizzeria being a favourite. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and Caroline has created an oasis of a garden which we loved sitting in at the end of the day.Caroline was on hand to answer our questions about the local area. The Summerhouse is a little gem which we shall return to and recommend to others.
