Down a long private track surrounded by fields and woodland is your house with a courtyard full of plants and an orchard. Take your morning coffee on the bench that catches the sun just outside your sitting room.
Jessica lives next door and delivers a breakfast basket when you want – good coffee and tea, local sourdough, croissants, homemade jam and muesli plus hand-pressed apple juice from the orchard. Cooked breakfast is a little extra – perhaps scrambled eggs and salmon.
It’s idyllic here: peaceful and secluded, but near some quirky Somerset hubs – Mells is two miles away and Frome’s independent café, restaurants and shops, plus fab monthly market, are six miles. Return to a glass of wine in the courtyard and relax.
