Found at the bottom of the owners' drive, on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Cocklake, Wassail Cottage is a beautifully converted former hay store, and a holiday home that has been described as a 'true gem' by previous guests. With an unusual name derived from the ancient ceremony of wassailing (drinking a 'cup' and singing to the apple trees in cider-producing regions) it overlooks an apple orchard from which the owners make a number of delicious products - as you would expect from this part of the countyside! Wassail Cottage has undergone a wholesale update and the finished product is beautiful and very smart with especially attractive living accommodation presented in a contemporary style - very light, welcoming and spacious. We felt at home immediately and we're sure you will too the moment you walk in and 'switch off'. A wonderful barn in some traditional Somerset countryside.
Two bedrooms: 1 x king size double, 1 x full size bunks.
Shower room with shower, basin and WC.
Open plan living room with dining area.
