  • Colin

    “On arrival there was no greeting from the owners, just the key left on the floor in the wet outside the door, the cottage was very small which proved to be a blessing as the heating was set and locked at a maximum 19 degrees, only coming on twice a day for a short period of time, not allowing for the cottage to get warm enough to last, they provided a basket of logs and a few pieces of kindle but after that we would have to pay 12 pounds for more logs, hence we purchased more from the local garden centre, the beds were uncomfortable, and the kitchen utensils ie pots, pans, cutlery etc in poor condition, the cottage needs an upgrade and a more thorough clean, we were asked to strip the bedding before we left to which we did,however on doing so found the duvets to be stained and yellow in patches, in all the cottages we have stayed in over the years this has to go down as the most disappointing, the price we paid for the weekend was very much overpriced considering the standard.”

The property

This three bed period barn conversion is located in the village of Evercreech near to the town of Wells, a wing of the owner's home in rural Somerset, a beautiful place to commence your holiday.

Suited for the family with its collection of bedroom styles, The Coach House invites you inside to an open-plan living area, benefitting from the warmth of a woodburning stove for those cooler nights, and French doors that open out to the patio area, perfect for a summer's afternoon.

Whether you are settling down on the comfy mismatched sofas, or gathering together at the dining table, you will feel right at home.

The kitchen continues the modern overtone, including a range of appliances including a washer dryer and a large fridge freezer.

Two bedrooms lie on the ground floor, including a wonderful king-size and twin room, with a further super king-size bedroom located upstairs.

Views over the countryside and a feature window truly welcome the outside in.

Should you be bringing along a little one, you will be pleased to discover a travel cot, highchair, and baby bath.

Lastly, one bathroom on each level, so every guest can get ready comfortably in the morning and evening.

The City of Wells with its famous cathedral and twice-weekly market is only 8 miles away; Bruton and the renowned Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery and restaurant 6 miles away, and Longleat safari park a 25 minute drive.

The Coach House offers the perfect comfortable base for a cultural sightseeing holiday.

With something to interest every member of the family, other local attractions include Glastonbury Tor and Abbey, the Clarks Shopping village, the Fleet Air Arm museum, Cheddar Gorge and caves and Wookey Hole, all within a 30 minute drive.

Cider and cheese making remains a key industry.

In Shepton Mallet, 3 miles away, you will find two large supermarkets for everyday necessities as well as several antique shops to browse.

At Clarks Village in Street, only 10 miles away and on the site of the old Clarks shoe factory, you will find over 90 high street and designer retailers plus numerous cafes and restaurants. Only 18 miles south of Bristol, this cottage is a home-away-from-home in a magnificent part of Somerset.

Wells, England’s smallest city, is named after the springs which still bubble up today in the grounds of its splendid Bishop's Palace with its famous moat. Adjacent is the beautiful 12th century cathedral situated within a most attractive cathedral close and green. Nearby, Vicars Close is home to the oldest complete medieval street in Europe, and the quaint market square offers an array of interesting shops, boutiques and restaurants, and a colourful twice-weekly market. The surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a wealth of scenic footpaths and rugged landscapes, and is a superb base for caving and rock climbing, and for road, biking and mountain biking. Nearby are the attractions of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves, both offering great days out. The picturesque Somerset Levels, as well as mystical Glastonbury are also situated an easy drive away. The beautiful city of Bath, with its Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa, The Theatre Royal and wonderful shops, is under 30 miles away, as is the vibrant city of Bristol, which boasts a multitude of attractions, including The Zoo, Theatres, the Aquarium, the Arnol Fini Art Gallery and many more.
