About Lisa Lewis-Yallop (on behalf of Irene & Derek Paget)
My wife and I have owned property in the Cheddar area for many years. We have recently sold our interiors business, but are still involved in design projects. We have indulged and spared no expense on this project and the result is stunning. We have been involved in letting holiday properties for many years. We go to great lengths to provide friendly customer care and ensure that our guests are greeted by a high standard of accommodation.
Why Lisa Lewis-Yallop (on behalf of Irene & Derek Paget) chose Cheddar
Jessie’s Cottage is positioned at the foot of the Mendip Hills, in the midst of beautiful countryside. There are lovely walks and a local pub very close by. The accommodation has recently been totally refurbished to a very high standard, incorporating the most modern appliances, within a cosy character cottage. You can enjoy log fires, fabulous walks and friendly village life. The property has excellent road transport links and is convenient for Cheddar Caves and Gorge, as well as the ancient market City of Wells.

Wonderful weekend in a beautiful cottage. We were made to feel SO welcome. Thank you!
Our stay at ‘Jessie’s’ cottage
We enjoyed staying at ‘Jessie’s’ cottage it was clean and the kitchen was well provisioned. It had good proximity to Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Wells. Irene and Derek our neighbours were absolutely lovely, kind and helpful. However, whilst the garden was wonderful it should be noted that it is shared with Irene and Derek, the owners of the property so occupants do not have full privacy. The 3G is non existent inside the house so you need to go into the garden to find it but the WiFi works perfectly. The property could also do with a house book with info about the house, including what to do with the rubbish etc and info on local attractions, would also be helpful. All that said we had a lovely stay.
The house was very charming and the atmosphere was very inclusive. The rooms were cozy and the beds comfortable. Thank you so much and we really recommend the house to anyone wishing to vacation in England.
lovely peaceful stay in a great location
We spent 3 nights here while visiting the area. It's a great location to see Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury etc from. It's a lovely cottage with beautiful gardens, and friendly owners who are there to help if needed. Highly recommended!
A perfect location to explore the Mendip hills from. The garden is exquisite and the family of wrens living just outside the door where a joy. Our 4 year old loved it.
The hosts are brilliant
