Glamping Somerset near Bath
For a completely different holiday and glamping experience, come and stay in this amazing hand-crafted wooden Somerset roundhouse. Set in the grounds of the owner’s 40-acre organic farm, this unique yurt-style Somerset cottage is near the village of Stratton-on-the-Fosse at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, only 8 miles from Wells and only 12 miles south of historic Bath and 12 miles north east of mystical Glastonbury. Brock and Helen moved to Helen’s family farm in 2010 and became involved in farming the land using Biodynamic principles. Starting off with 2 cockerels named PlinkPlank and Plonk, there are now 20 Saddleback pigs, 8 Jacob sheep, 3 Hereford cows numerous hens, ducks, geese and turkeys. Brock has created an ever-expanding kitchen garden which is now producing enough veg to sell locally.
This unusual Somerset holiday cottage, set in its own gardens and overlooking the fields, is 26′ in diameter, offers a perfect romantic retreat for couples or a small family who would like to sample a different way of living. The light and airy open plan interior of this Somerset holiday accommodation boasts a romantic handmade four poster bed, created from ash coppiced from the farm’s own woodland, a roll top bath and original Rayburn.
Outside, stroll straight from the door into the countryside and discover the nearby woodlands and valley, or just simply relax, sip a refreshing drink and take in the views across the fields.
