The larder is a wonderful modern holiday home in a very peaceful location. It is compact but perfectly adequate for a couple like us.

The larder is a beautiful place to take a holiday. 5* really does not do this place justice. It's set in the tiny hamlet of West Compton, just a few miles from Shepton Mallet and the Aincient cathedral city of Wells. As soon as you arrive you are free to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Stuart and Caroline, the owners are the perfect hosts, butRead more do not intrude in your holiday at all, even though their house is attached.
