About Christine

I am Graham Wason. Cossington Park is my ancestral home and much loved. I now live in Denmark and London but regularly visit Cossington Park. I reinvest any income back into the property to preserve it for future generations.

Christine purchased this chateau / country house in 1600

Why Christine chose Cossington

This much loved ancestral home is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the 22 acres of gardens and grounds. There is plenty to keep children busy and we well come family pets to! Adults can unwind in luxurious surroundings or we can arrange falconry, archery, ballooning to mention but a few things or maybe beauty treatments for a pamper session. Catering is also available on request.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Unique location on the Somerset Levels. Surrounded by stunning scenery and close to Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury, Wells and Burnham on Sea.

Guestbook comments from the manager

There is ample private parking for several cars, and the very large gardens and field are fully secure from the main road for children and dogs to run around in. There is an open barbeque area that we used each night. The gardens are something else- different planting areas, screening, and a peace and tranquillity that has stayed with us. Inside the house, it was spacious and each room was full of interesting books and pictures, so lots to explore at each turn. There are different size bedrooms, some double some twin, and all with their own character, and the different bathrooms meant we could choose whether to shower or have a deep bath. The kitchen was very well equipped- bring a favourite bread recipe as there is a bread machine and our hamper had locally sourced flour, lots of storage space, two large fridges and beautiful views of the front garden. There is Sky but not sports. Wifi coverage was limited in the house, but we could get this when outside. We felt at home as soon as we arrived, and would be delighted to return.

Perfect setting for a 90th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house equipped with (almost) everything we needed for a large family get-together. The antique furniture, books and personal effects scattered around made the house feel like a real home and the library/dining room was perfect for a formal meal.
