A beautiful eighteenth century cottage ideal for couples set on the edge of a delightful village of Wedmore with easy access to the whole of Somerset.
Wedmore is a thriving village in the heart of the Somerset countryside. It boasts a farm shop, a deli, chemist, fishmonger/ greengrocer, village stores and shops as well as three pubs all serving good food, an Indian restaurant/takeaway and some lovely clothes and gift shops. These are all a 20-minute walk along the original Anglo Saxon "road" at the front of the cottage. You can cycle or drive in a few minutes. In the winter months huge flocks of starlings can be seen across the sky before coming to roost in the reed beds on the Somerset Levels. Golf, clay pigeon shooting, and fishing are available locally. Other places to visit include The City of Wells with its Cathedral and Bishops Palace, the mystical town of Glastonbury with its Tor and the Abbey, Cheddar Gorge and caves, Wookey Hole and Clarkes Village outlet shopping. Bristol and Bath are within an hour’s drive and there are many houses and gardens such as Tyntesfield (NT) and Longleat. Or maybe a day at the races at either Wincanton, Taunton or Chepstow.
