Description

Cider cottage is situated in the heart of the Somerset Levels. Part of the 17th century Muchelney Ham Farm the cottage, which sleeps five people, is self contained and an ideal escape from the fast-paced modern world. This historic area close to the ruins of Muchelney Abbey offers great opportunities for walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and fishermen and the cottage, whilst furnished to a high standard, offers the peace of times long gone. The garden from the cottage stretches down to a stream with local wildlife including deer, heron and swans. In the summer it is an ideal spot to enjoy a picnic or a cool glass of wine. The cottage is warm and cosy in the winter and is particularly popular around Christmas time providing the ideal setting for an old-fashioned family get together. Those who wish to use the cottage as a base to tour this very beautiful part of England will find it very convenient for both the North and South coasts and for Exmoor.

just magical charming country cottage

By Gemma W on 01-Jan-2017

3 Jan 2017 Muchelney Ham Farm, Muchelney Ham, nr Langport, Somerset, TA10 0DJ, United Kingdom Date of Stay 1 Apr 2016 Helpful votes: 1/0 A wonderfully warm cosy cottage which was very well equipped. we enjoyed a fantastic family roast at the lovely big wooden table. The bedrooms were charming and the beds very comfortable. The garden was lovely and the children loved the sheep and cows.The surrounding country side was just perfect for walks from the cottage. It was like a home away from home. We look forward to staying here again. Both Sarah and her father were most helpful thank you.

The location is really beautiful with the most stunning countryside all around. Peace and relaxation in spades. The accommodation has everything you need and has a very homely feel about it. The garden is gorgeous, our boys loved playing with the sheep. Jim and Sarah are lovely people who were always on hand if we needed them.
