About the Owner

The owners, Patrick and Fiona have lived in the village of West Horrington for over thirty years - they obviously love the place! Kingdom Cottage is situated in what was the bottom of their garden.

Whilst they are happy to help and advise in what ever capacity they also respect the privacy of the guests staying at Kingdom Cottage. (pictured - Gus our friendly lurcher)

Exceptional cottage in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We received a warm welcome on arrival and we're delighted with a surprise bonus of cake, cookies, milk in the fridge and fresh garden flowers on the kitchen windowsill. Kingdom cottage is beautiful, tastefully furnished with excellent attention to detail. Everything one would need for a holiday away from home is catered for.I would highly recommend Kingdom cottage for a relaxing holiday in tranquil surroundings. Cheddar Gorge , Wookey Hole, Stonehenge, Bath are some of the places we enjoyed during our stay all worth a visit.

Rural cottage par excellence.

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal country cottage. Immaculately clean, everything up to six people could possibly need supplied. We spent three nights with our daughter and son-in-law from Australia, and his parents and had a truly wonderful stay. The owners were charming and unfailingly helpful with information and advice about the beautiful surrounding area.

Within easy reach of Bath, Wells, Cheddar and other local places of interest. Good pubs and restaurants in Wells, only five minutes drive away and pretty villages round almost every corner.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property as a surprise for my Fiance who had recently turned 40 and arranged for some friends to meet us there. The first word my fella said when we walked in was "Wow!" Beautifully thought out property with everything we needed. Everyday we noticed something new and quirky.

Perfect location, Wells is just a short drive away with again, everything we needed from supermarkets, takeaways and lovely places to eat. We enjoyed a meal at the Fountain Inn and would recommend this as a place to go. We wanted to go to Beah (Restaurant) but this was closed and I was a bit disappointed but Fountain Inn was a great alternative for us.

There are some woods with a stream nearby to explore and being a runner, I chose to do a trail run through and it didn't disappoint. Would recommend this area as a place to explore even if you're not a runner.

We spent a day in Bath, which was a first visit for us and it did not disappoint, beautiful city living up to it's reputation. Not too far from the cottage.

Fiona and her husband were a delight, right from the booking through to our stay. They are clearly very proud of the cottage and they have every reason to be. Very helpful on recommending places to go and always got back to me promptly with any queries I had, a very friendly service.

I can't think of anything to criticise, perfect cottage in a perfect location with perfect owners, just need to work out when we can visit again.

Further Details:

A walk to the end of the village will reward the visitor with a view of Biddlecombe, a wooded valley with a meandering stream that flows down to feed the pools in the Bishops Palace. There are plenty of other walks to enjoy here too: take the path that leads across the fields to Wells or follow the stream and find the Buddle House which was once used for lead mining.

The city of Wells is two miles away, with its magnificent Cathedral and the delightful moated Bishops Palace and garden. The city has a market on Wednesday and Saturday and a choice of pubs and restaurants for wining and dining.

For a more 'alternative' shopping experience Glastonbury is the place to visit. Now known worldwide for its Festival, Glastonbury is also home to the Rural Life Museum and Abbey and a visit would not be complete without a walk up the Tor for panoramic views of the Somerset Levels. During the winter months the nature reserves on The Levels are where great flocks of starlings gather to roost: a sight that, once seen, is never forgotten.

Other local towns include Frome, with many independent shops and cafes, and Street, famous for Clarks shoes and its retail outlet Clarks Village.

Bath and Bristol are twenty miles away and other places of interest include: Longleat Safari Park, Wookey Hole & Cheddar Caves plus many National Trust properties such as Stourhead and Barrington Court. Stonehenge and Avebury are an hour and a half away.

For those who like walking there are plenty of trails and pathways to be explored on The Mendips and at various RSPB reserves in the area.

There are two golf courses nearby, an indoor swimming pool in Wells and a lovely open air pool in Street.
