    We have had a such a lovely time in this beautiful cottage. Really enjoyed exploring some of the local area-we would love to come back to continue to explore and make use of the wonderful log burner which we didn't get to light this time! The extra touches such as the super welcome pack, flowers and fresh herbs were so thoughtful- as was answering Freddie's endless questions!! Thankyou Tracy.

The property

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.
