Ian's Cottage sits in a lovely location here at Brickyard Farm within walking distance of the bustling village of Wedmore with its many amenities, in the heart of the Somerset countryside close to Wells, Cheddar and Glastonbury. Tucked away and with fantastic views across the fields to the Mendip Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), not a road in sight it is very private and has a large enclosed garden with south facing terrace. Located on the edge of the Somerset Levels which is well known for it's National Nature Reserves this is a great place for bird watchers and wildlife lovers and there are excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and riding. Here in the winter months huge flocks of starlings can be observed wheeling across the sky before coming to roost in the reed b...Ian's Cottage sits in a lovely location here at Brickyard Farm within walking distance of the bustling village of Wedmore with its many amenities, in the heart of the Somerset countryside close to Wells, Cheddar and Glastonbury. Tucked away and with fantastic views across the fields to the Mendip Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), not a road in sight it is very private and has a large enclosed garden with south facing terrace. Located on the edge of the Somerset Levels which is well known for it's National Nature Reserves this is a great place for bird watchers and wildlife lovers and there are excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and riding. Here in the winter months huge flocks of starlings can be observed wheeling across the sky before coming to roost in the reed beds on the Somerset Levels, an extraordinary natural phenomenon featured on BBC Autumn Watch. We also have plenty of wildlife in the garden including badgers, foxes, rabbits, buzzards, a barn owl and woodpeckers. Golf, clay pigeon shooting and fishing are all available very locally. Somerset offers a variety of places to visit. Within easy reach of the cottage are the City of Wells with its magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace, the mystical town of Glastonbury with it's Tor and the Abbey, Cheddar Gorge and caves, Wookey Hole and Clarke's shopping village. Bristol and the elegant Georgian City of Bath are within an hours drive and there are many historic houses and gardens such as Tyntesfield (NT) and Longleat. How about a day at the races at either Wincanton, Taunton or Chepstow. Originally Ian's Cottage was a small barn which has been converted to provide comfortable and characterful accommodation. It is reached by climbing 12 gravelled steps from the parking area and following a path across the lawn. Garden furniture and a barbecue are supplied. Inside is a beamed living/dining room with a sofa and armchair and a wood burning stove for cosy evenings by the fire as well as a dining table and chairs. Books, CD's and games are provided or you may prefer to enjoy your favourite programmes or films on the Smart TV. The compact kitchen is well equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, washing machine and fridge with icebox. The bathroom has a bath/wc with shower over the bath and a sloping ceiling with velux window. Please note that the some of the doorways are slightly lower and narrower than standard doors as this is an old building. Narrow wooden stairs lead to a beamed double bedroom on the first floor with 5' bed, there are marvellous views of the Mendip Hills. Our linen is luxurious egyptian cotton and each guest is provided with a soft bathrobe, slippers and a fluffy bath sheet and towel. We also provide a welcome pack of essentials. Electricity is included. An initial basket of logs for the woodburner is included thereafter generally available at cost. Comments from some of our guests: 'Amazing cottage with beautiful views.' 'Idyllic cottage in beautiful surroundings. Local area well worth exploring. We had a brilliant time. Will definitely come back again.' 'Lovely retreat away. Great weekend, everything we needed. Will be recommending!' Check in from 4pm. Check out 11am. The cottage is situated approximately quarter of a mile down a farm track, it is quite accessible for all but the lowest of cars.More

Interaction with guests
The cottage is in a very private location here at Brickyard Farm at the top of our land and well away from our house. I generally communicate by text or email but am always happy to pop in if asked. We like to leave our guests in peace to enjoy their stay but we are available if needed and always happy to help.

About the neighbourhood
We are a 5 minute walk along a farm track to the village centre (Wedmore) which has everything you need. There are three pubs all selling delicious home cooked and locally sourced food as well as a tasty Indian Restaurant. We are lucky enough to have plenty of shops including a fishmonger/greengrocer, a delicatessen, a farm shop/ butcher, a local village stores, wine shop, vintage home wares and several clothes shops, art galleries and gift shops.
Getting around
You really need a car to get around if you want to explore more than the village of Wedmore.
