Strawberry Choux Bun
Click to book Strawberry Choux Bun now: from £500 per night Kick back and relax in a fairytale Grade II-listed pink cottage. Cloaked in wisteria and capped by thatch, it doesn't get more idyllic than this. The cottage benefits from having an open-plan kitchen-diner that's ideal for aspiring Robuchons to entertain their loved ones with lavish meals. The cosy living room with a wood-burning stove is perfect for part of the group to retire to after dinner, while the other half can head outside for a stargazing session from the steamy hot tub. On warmer days, the delightful garden makes a great setting for a picnic, or just walk to the pub for a hearty Sunday roast. Of course, there are some wonderful walks and cycles to discover right from your doorstep and bikes can be rented and delivered to the cottage in advanced, so all you need to do is bring weather-appropriate clothing and come ready to enjoy your time in Somerset. Sleeps up to 6 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Pear Blossom now: from £610 per night This Grade II-listed hamstone cottage is large enough to host multiple families. Seating up to sixteen diners with views of the grounds, the large garden room is the centrepiece of this magnificent home. The rooms are beautifully furnished with plush textiles and comfy chairs. The wood-fired hot tub, climbing frame and extensive garden give families plenty of activities to enjoy, while the surrounding landscape provides miles of stunning countryside to explore either by foot or bike, and local produce and wholesome meals can be found in pubs and grocery stores in the nearby town. Sleeps up to 16 | 7 Bedrooms | 6 Bathrooms
Click to book Hunters Moon now: from £800 per night If you’re looking for a group retreat that combines luxury accommodation with a mystical quality then abracadabra, this is the one. Heavily influenced by its proximity to Glastonbury, with its witchcraft myths and Arthurian legends, this home's defining characteristic is quirk, from the architectural details that resemble creeping organic forms to the dedicated midnight badger-watching spot in the garden. However, while most esoteric accommodation tends to the tumbledown end of the rustic spectrum, this unusual abode is practically palatial. Everything is to the highest spec, including a sound system with ceiling speakers, large American-style fridge-freezer and memory-foam mattresses. Originally a cottage dating back to 1580, it’s been substantially extended to add luxury bed-and-bath spaces – the master is our favourite, with its cocktail balcony and freestanding bath – and a ten-metre entertainment pod, with underfloor heating, a constellation ceiling, Bang & Olufsen wide screen TV and wifi sound system. Your hosts provide a 'Welcome Hamper' full of locally sourced produce, booze and treats, or if you’re planning an extra special visit, they can wave a wand to arrange an in-house Chef and full catering – perfect for that full-moon ceremony. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
Click to book Easy Listening now: from £210 per night Set within the grounds of a 22-acre country estate, fringing the pretty village of Cossington, you’ll find this charming cottage. Being one of only two houses on the grounds, this is a countryside hideaway like no other. Inside, the occasional antique and the impressive collection of books testify to the fact that this home has been part of the same family's history for the better part of four hundred years. We particularly love the calm, elegant bedrooms and spacious kitchen with panoramic windows opening out onto a private courtyard garden. The games room and ping pong table should keep the kids (and all you big kids) happy too. Outside, the serene historical surroundings continue on the estate. There’s a courtyard vegetable garden that guests are welcome to pick from (just check with the head gardener first), ancient woodlands and ponds to explore, croquet on the main lawn, and a games field, badminton court, and playground to burn off some steam. For day trips, we recommend you first visit Glastonbury. Or head for the coast at Bridgwater Bay and spend a whole day exploring the wild beaches. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
