The Somerset region

The limestone Mendip Hills rise up from the Somerset Levels, giving spectacular views across the peat moors as far as Exmoor , the sea and the Welsh hills beyond. The hills provide an underground network of caves and potholes , and , on the surface, wonderful walking beloved by visitors. The peat moors were home to ancient civiisations and are now the home to thousands of wild birds in the many nature reserves.

History tells a great story in Somerset, starting from early man, with many archeological sites, tthe start of Chrstianity at Glastonbury, through to the mystical legends of King Arthur, and his knights. The Roman and Georgian influence at Bath gives us many fine buildings while the cathedrals , abbeys and castles of Medieval times are some of the most visited places in the county.

The sea influence gave Somerset its warm pleasant climate so stock farming led to the sheepskin industries, some now defunct, and to cheese making, which still thrives. Strawberries grow on the slopes of the Mendips and remain a substantial source of income.

Because of its attractive nature, large houses were built in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, many now are National Trust properties with interesting gardens open to the public.


Draycott is the centre of the strawberry growing industry, with footpaths in all directions for easy walking as well as the long distance path the West Mendip Way which passes through. There are many local events such as the Strawberry Fayre held in June, Priddy Sheep Fair and Gypsy Horse Fair in August and the Somerset Carnivals held in November. The Bath and West of England Showground is home to many regional events and the attractions at Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole are open all year as are many others.

"Home from home"

"Looked and felt very clean!"

This was a traditional cosy cottage, which looked and more importantly felt clean.
Helen gave us a warm, friendly welcome and tour of the cottage on arrival. She had put the heating on for us and left a welcome pack ( teabags, 4 coffee/sugar sticks and coffee compliment sachets so you may want to take your own fresh milk ) She had also given it a festive touch with an artificial tree and decorations, which was very thoughtful. The open fire had also been made up for us.
The car can be parked off the road in a space infront of the window.
Beds were comfortable and the master bedroom has plenty of space. The bunk bed room is somewhat smaller.
Well equipped and full of charm in a quiet area.
Couldn't connect to my '3' network but 02 fine.
Great indoor go-kart track just up the road ( hubby and 22yr old son went every day ) plus a huge carboot sale is held there on Sundays, which my 21 yr old daughter found fascinating!
The Rodney Stokes Inn just up the road in the other direction did superb food but you may need to book in advance as it's very popular.
I would stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
