Pylle, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England
We understand the importance of having a good kitchen when on holiday, when you have the time to cook and create, so you’ll appreciate the detail of quality with ours with features such as the bespoke butchers block, retro Smeg fridge/freezer, Laura Ashley kitchen table and of course cupboards stacked with useful appliances.

The area and rolling hills surrounding the house are perfect for country walks, with or without a four legged friend - ideal for just enough exercise to justify a long soak in massaging hot tub with that well earned glass of wine before collapsing into the plush comfy sofas in front of the wood burner and 42' TV.

Had a lovely long weekend here to selabrate 10 year anniversary. House is very well appointed and has a airy yet cosy feel. Nice to have somewhere to go which is close enough to shops and civilisation yet peaceful and secluded with great views of the countryside. My one and only small gripe was the BBQ which really is only...

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Apple Cottage and we still love it. This time we had our toddler with us and he loved it too.

About the neighbourhood
Sitting in the best of Somerset countryside, Apple Cottage is close to Glastonbury, which besides the annual Festival is famous for its abbey ruins and spiritual identity. Longleat safari park is another popular attraction, where you can spend the day driving amongst lions and rhinos. For the architecturally-minded, Wells (the smallest city in England) has a must-see cathedral.

The world heritage site of Bath, half an hour away, is definitely worth a visit, whether for its Georgian buildings, shopping, Abbey or pump room and naturally heated spa baths. The SS Great Britain in Bristol and its various museums and art galleries also make a great day out. Other attractions include the Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole caves, Fleet air arm museum and Haynes Motor museum.
