FANTASTIC TWO BEDROOM COTTAGE IN RURAL LOCATION

Wedmore Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Modern but cosy rural retreat in the heart of the Mendips

Poplar Farm Holiday Cottage invites you to relax and unwind, perhaps with a glass of our own cider in hand, sitting outside gazing over to the Mendips and Cheddar Gorge.

Converted only this year, we offer a very well appointed, two bedroom, two shower room luxury base, gas centrally heated, from which to sample and explore the delights of Somerset and all that the West Country has to offer. The open plan living area and kitchen, which is particularly well equipped, are both light and airy, and have solid oak floors running through to the hall and both bedrooms. Bedroom one has a fitted wardrobe within which is a good sized chest of draws. Wall lights are fitted above the king size double bed which can be adapted to two single beds as shown. Leading off is an en-suite shower wet room with sink and toilet.

Bedroom two also has a good size wardrobe and chest of draws, with bedside cabinets and individual lamps.

Outdoor facilities: Just outside your front door is the garden, an area of lawn that can be lit by the exterior lighting of the cottage on those warm summer evenings. Outdoor furniture, tables, sun shade, and barbecue are provided and is equally suited to breakfasting whilst planning the days events.

The parking area just outside the cottage has space for a number of cars if necessary, with the potential for under-cover storage of bicycles if requested. The under cover area also allows for washing to be hung out to dry, safe in the knowledge that a shower will not catch you out. Don't worry, pegs are provided.

A further garden area extends down to the veg patch, orchard and small pond.

This area is separately fenced off, and often has a few of our sheep in residence, saving me the bother of mowing the lawn. They are guaranteed to be here during lambing as this takes place in the barn to the right as you look at the cottage front door.

LOVELY COTTAGE IN A BEAUTIFUL REGION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Poplar Farm and we cannot thank enough Simon and Annette ! They were so nice and they kept kindly giving us delicious fresh eggs and cider. Even if we had some trouble communicating in English, Simon still tried to talk with us :)

The cottage is perfect with everything you need and the decoration is made with such a good taste.

We enjoyed our stay in the Somerset which is such a beautiful region and the cottage is well located between Wells, Glastonbury, Bath or even Cardiff !

Owner's Response: Hi Melanie, Evelyne, and Philippe,

Thank you for your lovely comments, it was great having you come and stay with us. Thank you also for the lovely present of a bottle of wine that you brought over for us, a vast improvement on the cider that we provide, you can come again...

The language thing was not a problem, we seemed to work it out between us, we should try harder to speak other languages, an English thing I think.

If your ever this way again, then I promise to get out my old school books and practice a bit of French. Thanks again for picking us and taking the trouble to post such lovely comments.

Kind regards,

Simon & Annette.

THE WARMEST OF WELCOMES TO SOMERSET

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is a wonderful place to spend some relaxing time, excellently equipped and set in a beautifully picturesque part of Somerset. It is of a very high standard, but elevated higher by the generosity of Annette and Simon. In addition to the welcome pack of essentials (few places can compete with knowing exactly which hens the eggs came from) and the fantastic farmhouse cider, their genuine interest in helping visitors find the best from the area was refreshing. We all enjoyed seeing Crinkle and the piglets every morning (although Daisy was not too sure about the chickens) and hopefully the new ducks will now have settled in.

Having stayed in a few cottages in the West Country, we consider that this was far and away the best and look forward to a return in the near future.

Andy, Liz, Ben & Daisy

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is outstanding, you will not find anything better than this!

This has been lovingly decorated and is very homely. It is extremely comfortable and totally spotless. The location is perfect with many places close by including Cheddar.

The kitchen is very well equiped, we ate in most of the time and could find nothing they didnt have.

Simon and Annette were brilliant and made us feel very welcome. Simon kept us full with fresh eggs and plenty of cider!! The welcome extras in the cottage including milk, tea, coffee, wine, beer and eggs were great and very much appreciated.

Thank you to Simon for taking us to see the feeding of the animals, that was a special treat. I believe Crinkle, the pig, is due about now? so hope all is going well.

We were only sorry we did not have enough time to have a longer stay but we most definately will be returning again.

Thank you very much again.

Owner's Response: Hi Marianne, Allister & Michaela.

Great to hear from you again, and thank you so much for your very kind word. It never fails to put a smile on our faces, not only when our guests are complimentary in our visitors book, but particularly appreciate it when they go to all the trouble of sending comments in to perhaps help us secure future bookings, we very much appreciate it and look forward to perhaps meeting up again some time.
Oh, and Crinkle the pig performed faultlessly at 7:00am Saturday, delivering us ten little piglets.
Thank you all again.

Simon & Annette.

FAULTLESS!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Simon and Annette.

I could not have found a nicer place to spend my week in Somerset. The cottage was immaculate and you were impeccable in your approach to hosting. I cannot thank you enough and genuinely wish I could stay longer.

The cottage itself had everything I could have hoped for and the location suited me perfectly. Both Wedmore and Cheddar were just a couple of miles away and I enjoyed taking a stroll to both places more than once. Simon's recommendation to try The Swan in Wedmore was a good call...... the Pork Belly was fabulous!

All in all, this was one of the most enjoyable breaks I have ever had and I will be hoping to come down and stay again in the not too distant future.

Thank you both,

Mark Mcleod - Auchleven, Aberdeenshire

Seriously it is always good to get feedback, especially when it is as complimentary as yours, we enjoy meeting all our guests and a response like yours makes it all the more worth while.
Hope the ride back to Scotland went well. You will always be welcome here.
Kind regards

OUR EASTER BREAK

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place, a real home from home. This little piece of paradise was one of the best places, if not the best we have ever stayed in. The place was spotless and everything you need is provided. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, wine, beer, milk, tea bags, coffee and free range eggs ( even chocolate ones as it was Easter) Simple extra little touches that made it even more special.Simon and Annette could not have been more welcoming, what a lovely couple very obliging.
The Ewe that was due to lamb delivered as ordered while we were there, although we missed the birth, the 2 black lambs were only a couple of hours old when we returned. Thank you for letting us take pictures and hold them it was a wonderful experience. We would recommend this cottage to anyone you would have a great time. We fully intend to visit again in the near future, but next time it will be more than a weekend!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your most generous comments, we try to ensure that cleanliness is our top priority as a matter of course, however it is so pleasing for our guests to appreciate our efforts in writing.
We will of course, pass your comments on to our star ewe, as one of the team, she also really appreciates positive feedback, and will be rewarded in the shape of extra nuts tonight.
Crinkle the pig, whom I don't think you had time to visit, wants to get in on the act and promised to perform in a similar manner during May. If you can find the time, then it goes without saying that you would all be most welcome.
Living on site, as we do, affords us the ability to try and provide those little touches that hopefully make your stay that little bit nicer, and which you obviously appreciated. We very much enjoy meeting all our guests from all over the world who stay, and allows us to respond to what may have only been a casual comment when passing, such as the limitations of our wireless router, hence there is now a hard wired socket for laptops to be plugged into. All we need now is an improved broadband speed in this area.
Thank you again for making our day with your compliments, and for making them in such a public way. Your taking the trouble to do so makes it all the more special.

LOVELY COTTAGE SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend in March 2013. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and generous without being intrusive. The surrounding countryside is lovely and we enjoyed walks right from the doorstep. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Hi Ruth
Annette and I would like to thank you so much for your flattering comments. We do our best to try and ensure that our guests enjoy their stay as much as possible and it is always a difficult balancing act trying to be attentive without being intrusive.
It was a great please having you stay with us, should you plan another stroll around this neck of the woods then we would love for you to join us again, perhaps this time, without just missing the lambing period.
Thanks again.

Located just off the beaten track between the villages of Cheddar & Wedmore, Poplar Farm benefits from a slightly elevated location providing views to Cheddar Gorge & the Mendip Hills. Wedmore, which is the nearest village, is just 2 miles away and is the turning point for travellers heading to Gastonbury, Wells, or the seaside towns of Burnham On Sea, and Weston-super-Mare. Alternatively, a drive up the impressive Cheddar Gorge, just 3 miles away, will deliver you to the top of the Mendips, an area criss-crossed with foot paths. Why not head on to the World Heritage Site, the City of Bath, its Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, the Spa and Georgian architecture, constructed from the local Bath Stone.

With the M5 Motorway, Junction 22, less than 10 miles away, the more adventurous have the rest of the west Country at their finger tips.

If hiking, cycling, site seeing, or simply relaxing in beautiful surroundings is what you're looking for, then please come & stay with us at Poplar Farm.

Other Activities: Clay Pigeon Shooting

Golf: Isle of Wedmore Golf Club is one of Somerset’s friendliest clubs, a warm welcome is always extended to our members and visitors including societies and corporate visitors. The Isle of Wedmore Golf Club was founded in 1992 and is located just 2 miles from Poplar Farm.

Our location benefits from breathtaking panoramic views of the Mendip Hills, Cheddar Valley, Glastonbury Tor and the Somerset Levels. Our parkland course has been carefully designed to maintain and enhance the natural environment offering 18 holes (par 70) of over 6000 yards in 2 nine hole loops. Both these loops start and finish at our excellent and newly extended Clubhouse which offers a wide range of delicious snacks, meals and beverages. It provides a challenge for the experienced golfer but at the same time is gentle enough for the less skilful player.
