Your Hosts

Celebrating Karen's birthday with the kids during lock-down

Dave & Karen moved to Somerset in February this year ( 2020 ) with two objectives, one being to pursue their passion for walking and the other providing first class holiday accommodation.

The moment we set eyes on Old Ford Cottage we knew that this was the perfect property in a fantastic location to share with our guests.

Whether your visit entails exploring, walking, cycling or just relaxing in our lovely garden alongside the River Sheppy we hope the area and our accommodation will exceed your expectations.

With the onslaught of storms Dennis and Jorge, along with a minor foot operation for Karen followed by the Corona virus lock-down our time here has been split either out in the garden or checking and even double checking!! all the guest rooms are top notch. 

The area has rich and eclectic mix of pubs, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms and lovely farm

shops to cater for all tastes. Many we have already tried ( pre lock-down and for research

purposes only ) and looking forward to working our way through many more.

We are extremely fortunate to have a great bus service right on our doorstep, you can catch the fabulous 367 Mendip Explore service from the end of the lane ( 2 min walk ). In one direction it terminates in Street ( Clarke's Shopping Village ) and Bristol is 70mins away in the opposite direction.

This service runs late into the evening, great for a night out sampling the delights of either Glastonbury or Wells.

We love a stroll around the garden first thing in the morning listening to the myriad of bird songs and checking on our first attempt to nurture a mixture of vegetables.
