About the Owner

Hello I'm Caroline, my daughter is Chloe, although most of the time she is at University, and we live with Neville and Lottie the cats. We've lived here since July of last year, converting what was a bed and breakfast into holiday lets. We opened in late March and have been very busy since. Still time to do a lot of gardening and playing tennis!

Charming, comfortable cottage in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay in the Glastonbury countryside for a week in August. I just wanted a week to relax and explore on my own and Caroline's cottage was just the thing.

Situated near the farmhouse, the cottage, which is a barn conversion made into two spacious flats (I was in the ground floor one), was very comfortable. It had a big, well-equipped kitchen with everything you would need, an ensuite bathroom and extra shower room, as well as a comfy living room area, with a sofa and armchair.

The owner, Caroline, was very friendly and helpful, but also left me to my own devices and never intruded. Make sure you ask about the shortcut across the fields to the local pub - it's a lovely walk and saves driving. It's just normal pub grub, nothing fancy, but it's not bad and they have a good range of beers and some ciders.

I only actually used the hot tub twice during that time, but it was lovely with that peace and quiet and the lovely views.

The cottage is well-situated for Glastonbury and Wells, but also reasonably close to the Devon and Dorset coasts.

It was a great place to stay and I really didn't want to leave at the end of my stay. Might see you next year Caroline. :)

Location

From the Owner

It is such a lovely part of Somerset. The village is nestled in the Polden Hills with great views over the countryside. Walk a little bit further up the hill and the views go right across the Somerset levels. We are also a great touring base for Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Cheddar, Bath, the Coast and many National Trust properties.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The barn has been converted over the winter so everything is new and pristine for the Spring of 2015. The style is modern country meets shabby chic! There is plenty of privacy and lots of space for guests to enjoy the property. Outside: The gardens are lovely and guests have their own private patios. The hot tub is for shared use and is on it's own patio with fantastic views across the countryside. There are BBQs available.
