This holiday property, a former part of Mendip Hospital, is full of charm and character, with art work and wonderful furnishings throughout.

Dating from 1880, Easel Cottage sits on the highest point of South Horrington village, just outside Wells, affording it a superb viewpoint. Formerly, the cottage was part of the Mendip Hospital, and used as a porter’s lodge and staff quarters. It was originally attached to the main house (currently habited by the cottage owners) by a bridge. Easel Cottage has been lovingly brought back to life without losing its original charm, retaining original doors and windows, with the addition of modern comfort. The main house is the home of the owner’s, and of their gallery business, and the walls of Easel Cottage are adorned with art, making every room unique. It is an art lover’s paradise, providing your own private gallery for the duration of your stay with all of the works available for purchase. On renovating Easel Cottage, the owners have collected together weird and wonderful artefacts including unopened 1960s medication, shoes, Victorian glass and hospital menus.

    Ellie and Andy, the owners, could not have been more welcoming and considerate. Lovely welcome tray, beautiful bedding, comfy beds. Amazingly quiet - there isn't a sound to be heard, especially at night. The games room with table tennis and darts was a real bonus. The area has so much to explore, stunning cathedral (the tour was fascinating), peaceful nature reserves (Ham Wall's reed beds were atmospheric), craggy walks, shopping, etc. There were just three of us, perhaps the lounge might feel a bit cosy if 5 adults were in it at the same time. Great to be close enough to walk into Wells along footpaths.

    The cottage was so cosy and beautifully renovated with wonderful art adorning its walls. Ellie was extremely welcoming and had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable - including some local cheddar in the fridge! The cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable - I had the best night's sleep I've had in a long time in the huge fluffy bed! There is a small bit of private woodland surrounding the cottage which was a lovely added bonus and the views down the valley were beautiful. Would definitely stay again and would encourage others to do so too!
