About Rob Wass
In June 2013 we completed construction of Evergreen Cottage which adjoins the main house (Evergreen House) The original part of the house dates back to 1852 and bears origin back to the 'Little Jack' Horner family. We hope visitors staying at Evergreen Cottage relax and unwind and enjoy all that Somerset has to offer. We look forward to seeing you soon. Rob and Naomi

Why Rob Wass chose Shepton Mallet
Our property is located down a peaceful country lane in the small hamlet of Prestleigh. Stepping out of the front door we can follow the stream up the lane and into the glorious Somerset Countryside. Yet with a short drive we are in the historic City of Wells the smallest city in England. With its magnificent cathedral Wells still retains many independent shops, restaurants, pubs and twice weekly farmers market. Heading in the other direction we have Bruton and Castle Cary great places to wonder around and explore at leisure.

Peaceful Cottage near Bath and West Showground
The cottage is in a very convenient location for the Showground. I would advise checking in before it gets dark as there are no streetlights on the lane and no sign giving the name of the Cottage. There is 1 parking space outside and it was the description of that which enabled us to be sure we'd found the right place!
The cottage was warm and cosy with its underfloor heating so we did not have to light the woodburning stove.
It was well equipped so we were able to cook our evening meals happily.
It was a good place to stay.
Somerset cottage living.
Lovely little cottage tucked just off the main road. The hoasts are very helpful and welcoming. We stayed for a week in August and visted Glastonbury, Wells and many smaller towns of Somerset. Plus short drive away from Weston-super-mare and The Dorset coast. Would highly recommend for a relaxing holiday or to explore this part of the west country.
Relaxing weekend in a gem of a cottage.
My partner and I stayed at the cottage from Thursday to Sunday. It was totally easy to find and in a great location within easy reach of Cheddar, Wells, Bristol and Bath. It’s rural and quiet, perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The cottage itself was very modern inside, kitted out with everything you need for a weekend stay. I also couldn’t fault the cleanliness of the property. The bedroom was much larger than I expected and the king size bed was so, so comfortable. Our only disappointment was that we didn’t get to use the wood burner as the weather outside was too warm, but I guess it means we will have to come back in the winter months! One of the nights we visited a nearby pub called The Natterjack, everyone was really friendly and the food was tasty, locally sourced and reasonably priced. There was also a large selection of ciders too. All in all, it was a perfect cottage for our weekend break and we would love to return.
