Our week stay at Church Cottage was perfect. A cottage that is cosy but feels big enough for five adults to not feel cramped. Love the big kitchen diner! Luckily, the weather was kind enough for us to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view from the patio.
There are numerous walks directly from the house and a good pub within walking (15 mins) distance. Also some fab places to visit nearby by car and supermarkets only a short drive away.

Monique was friendly, efficient and helpful throughout the booking process. It was great to find milk, tea and coffee after a long journey.

I think a return visit is on the cards!

Management response:

Thank you so much, what more could a host ask for but wonderful guests to immediately fall into and relish what Church Cottage and our pocket of Somerset have to offer! Please look us up again as we'd love to host you all! Thank you again.

Spent Christmas locked away in this corner of peace.
Well stocked cottage supplying all you need with comfortable beds, fireplace and wifi for those that don't want to be to far away!
Couple pubs within 1 mile and many more within a short drive
Small country lanes and Wells, the smallest city close by.
Amazing break and stunning location.

About the neighbourhood
Oakhill is just a mile or so up the road with its award winning pub, the Oakhill Inn where they serve delicious home cooked food in a very relaxed pub setting and offer some fabulous local cider and ales.

The Mendip Inn is also located a mile in the other direction at Gurney Slade. It is a contemporary pub that offers an a la cart menu, great Sunday lunches and a good vegetarian selection. The local post office is also located at Gurney Slade.

There are plenty of villages, towns and sites to keep you busy within Somerset. Just to give you a taster, Glastonbury is a hippy town full of colourful characters and eclectic shops, a trip up to the Tor is a must with stunning views over the Levels and surrounding countryside. Historic Wel
