About Heather and Gary Priestley
This is one of our three holiday rentals with HomeAway, the others being Crooks Peak Cottage and Polperro House which is a very large Victorian House (sleeps 10) overlooking the sea, located in a historic, smuggling and old Pirate Harbour of Polperro in South East Cornwall Mendips View has been built to a higher standard than present day building regulations require, the walls, floors and ceiling are packed with the highest quality insulation to keep the occupants comfortable and cosy whilst sat enjoying the two totally different views. Heather and Gary have known each other since our school days, finally getting together at the end of the 20th Century. We moved to this area in July 2002 where we were very lucky to purchase Hamwood Park originally a 15th Century Storage Barn for seasoning (drying) cut timber. It was converted in about 1980 but not to the standard that we have been bringing it to, WE-Gary and Heather, have physically put on the new roof amongst many other restorations. Mendips View was converted from a freezing cold single story building into the fantastic cosy cottage that we now offer for others to come and enjoy the very clean air (you will sleep soundly) along with the stunning countryside of the West Mendip Way, excellent for walkers. We both work (Gary an Airline Pilot, Heather, a Civil Servant) whilst maintaining the up keep of our small holding and enjoy the variety of the many holiday makers that come and stay, many returning several times throughout the year.

Why Heather and Gary Priestley chose Loxton
LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE PER PERSON OF BUTLINS AND FAR SUPERIOR We as owners are close by to help you enjoy your holiday but also to leave you alone to relax. We encourage you to really appreciate the location by feeding our ducks and chicks if you wish or bounce on the trampoline. One of our visitors actually returned early from a day out as they wanted to come home! We love our home and enjoy others enjoying it, leaving you to relax or assisting you with planning your days out if you wish. LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE PER PERSON OF BUTLINS AND FAR SUPERIOR
What makes this Cottage unique
As soon as we drove up our secluded farm lane, parked next to the Dutch Barn looking at the house our stomachs were both knotted. We were blown away by the enormity of this handsome place whose lounge is bigger than the footprint of our 1930 house that we moved from. We still drive up our lane in disbelief. Gary still thinks of only being the caretaker not the owner! The air was sampled before we moved here and is of a very high quality amongst the total quietness of the countryside. It is located within easy access to many of the local interests whilst being simple to access due to being out of the rat race traffic. If you like street lights, noise of people returning from the pub etc, this is not the place for you. If you like peace and quiet and want to return home refreshed and relaxed then a stay is highly recommended. Many of our short break visitors visitors come back for a full break.
