This whitewashed cottage is full of surprises. Daisy has restored it using reclaimed everything – the quirkier the better: painted or gold-leafed pieces, polished boards, beautiful bedheads and Indian banister, clever clothes hooks… Bedrooms, all differently styled, have well-dressed beds and fantastic bathrooms. The breakfast room has separate tables that can all be put together for friends, a snug sofa by the wood-burner, artworks – and pottery for sale; it opens to a sunny terrace. Daisy loves to cook: homemade granola, bread, jams, local bacon, eggs from her parents’ smallholding, cakes. Cheddar and Glastonbury are 20 minutes.
