This detached cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway and for touring the glorious attractions of Somerset and is just a short stroll from the village pub and a farm shop with a cafe and bakery.

This rural bolthole for two makes for an ideal romantic retreat in the charming village of Priddy in the Mendip Hills. Situated in the highest village of these hills, you are well placed for a range of stunning walks in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between Wells and Cheddar. Take one canine companion along with you to soak up your picturesque surroundings, setting out from the pleasant stone setting of this detached cottage. I

nside, this a spacious open-plan living area, subtly but colourfully decorated, where you can settle into a deep and comfy sofa with pup nestled by your side. Rustle up comfort foods in the contemporary kitchen area and dine at seating for two over pleasant garden views. A roomy double bedroom is ideal for a cosy night’s sleep after a long day, complete with a modern, spacious en-suite shower room.

Down a flight of stone steps at the front of the cottage is the perfect elevated spot to enjoy your morning coffee over idyllic village scenery, while pups can frolic untroubled on the nearby lawn. You are situated midway between Cheddar (6 miles) where you can explore its gorge (great for stretching canine legs) and the caves, and Wookey Hole and Wells (both under 5 miles) - with Wells being England's smallest city, featuring a magnificent cathedral and plenty of unique shops and markets. A 20-mile drive away is Bath, great for a spot of metropolitan shopping. For some beachside frolics for you and your canine companion, find Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare, both under 19 miles.

Well placed to visit some outstanding countryside, villages, towns and cities. We were comfortable and well looked after. You have the chance to come and go to your own agenda. Would I recommend this cottage? Yes, especially as I felt it was well positioned in the value offered.

The cottage was a very quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the variety of domestic fowl next door. The local pub was welcoming and provided an excellent take away. It is in easy reach of Wells which has a vibrant market. The location was ideal for walking or exploring nearby Bath or Bristol.

A nice comfortable cottage, we felt very relaxed in it but had to cut short our stay due to a family illness. We hope to return some time in the coming year.

Internet connection had to be through the extension which was fine except it could not be seen on two of our devices. Appreciate that this might be out of owners control Central heating did not work but this was not a problem for that week Heating on the final wet and cold day might have been helpful (owner did supply a convection heater for us butRead more this wasn't a help in the shower room) Hide

The location in Priddy is perfect for long country walks and the Pen is lovely for relaxing in the evenings after the evening meal. We visited during the COVID-19 lockdown and thus very very cautious about where we visited, so the type and location of our accommodation had to good. The Pen matched all our criteria perfectly. Would we visit again - Read moreyes, definitely. Hide

The Pen is snug little place ideally situated in Priddy to explore th Mendips. The owners live in their house next door and couldn't have been more helpful. They provided a lovely welcome pack when I arrived of fresh bread from the farm shop, milk, butter, eggs and a couple of bottles of local brew. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our week at The Pen. It is a very peaceful location and the property is well equipped and very comfortable. It made the perfect base from which to explore Wells, Cheddar Gorge and the nature reserves on the Avalon Marshes.

Beautifully situated cottage but the property wasnt too clean and was in need of some TLC. Several items, as already stated, need replacing. The welcome pack of cider, beer, eggs, bread and milk was much appreciated. The dining chairs , however, have seen better days , also the small coffee table.
