Sweet cottage in a lovely village. It is wonderfully located as a base to visit the surrounding areas in Somerset. Loved the hedgehogs in the garden, bats flying at night, toy mouse peeking out of the cupboard, and even the stuffed snake in the hearth. Thank you for a great stay.
A unique and very endearing cottage that is very central to Glastonbury, Wells, Cheddar and Wookey Hole.
The George pub is minutes on foot away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
Wonderful quaint cottage
Stayed for 3 nights with 3 kids. Very cosy and spacious. All the kitchen facilities you may need. Comfortable beds. A great base for exploring Somerset. Very close to Wookey Hole which is a worthwhile visit. Would definitely recommend.

Croscombe is first recorded in AD706 when King Ina of Wessex referred to the village as Correges Cumb.
It was in the 17th century that many of Croscombe's significant houses, cottages and hostelries were built many of which still survive.
The large Church is of particular interest built in the Perpendicular Gothic style and reconstructed during the 16th and 17th centuries having an unusual spire for Somerset, and Jacobean interior woodwork of national renown.
As the wool trade declined, the Industrial Revolution brought new industries such as the silk trade, mining, quarrying and milling which all left their mark upon the village landscape. The Chimney almost opposite Millview is a clear reminder of Croscombe's industrial past marking as it does the site of the mill from which the cottage takes its name. The ancient Market Cross recalls the village's social history.
The ancient George Inn is a short walk from the cottage and serves excellent food. You can be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
With its beautiful country walks Croscombe is indeed an ideal village for holidaying.
Everybody should visit the world famous Cheddar Caves and Gorge. Not only can you visit the caves but for the energetic try the climb up Jacob's Ladder to the cliff top. There is also an open bus tour for the less energetic.
Another place where water wells up in caves beneath the Mendip Hills is Wookey Hole, the birth place of cave diving. You can visit the paper mill where the clean water is provided from Wookey Hole.
Above ground Wells is England's smallest city and the outstanding cathedral is well worth visiting together with the moated and walled Bishop's Palace - obviously North Somerset was not always as peaceful as it now is. Just to the south of Wells is Glastonbury, built around the ruins of its mediaeval Abbey, once one of the richest in England until Henry VIII's agent Thomas Cromwell despoiled it. Glastonbury is a centre for new age thinking and philosophies the old monks would never have dreamed of.
Just outside Shepton Mallet is the East Somerset Railway which runs steam trains along its section of line on most weekends of the year. On some days, they will even let you drive an engine up and down a siding for a fiver.
The seaside is not too far away for a day trip to Brean Sands, or the more traditional attractions of Weston-super-Mare. As well as the beach there is the Seaquarium or the thoroughly modern helicopter museum with 70 aircraft.
A great way to see the Mendip countryside is pony trekking from Tyning Trekking Centre
Listed amongst the top golf courses in the British Isles is the par 71 Mendip Golf Club just 5 miles away, where they welcome visitors.
Further afield is the Georgian city of Bath, designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site with its Roman Baths, mediaeval Abbey, and some very stylish shops.
Why not visit Bristol? Home of Brunel's SS Great Britain and the Clifton suspension bridge over the Avon Gorge.
Also Longleat Safari Park and Elizabethan house is within half an hours drive.
