Orchard Farm Cottages
Cockhill, Castle Cary, Somerset
Orchard Farm is situated in the beautiful Somerset countryside in a peaceful location, less than two miles to the picturesque market town of Castle Cary, with its interesting shops and country pubs.
Our traditional Somerset barn has been converted into two cosy self catering cottages, Owls and Birds Nest. Both our ground level cottages are perfect for a relaxing break away and Birds Nest is suitable for wheelchair users.
Owls CottagesThis charming cottage is perfect for families and has a lovely open living area, with a kitchen leading off from this. The lounge has original stone walls, beams, an electric wood burner, Freeview TV and DVD player. A well equipped kitchen comes with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment and coffee machine.
The cottage has a main bedroom with a double bed and second room with bunk beds. Both rooms share a bathroom with a bath/shower and a separate toilet. All bed linen and towels are provided.
Birds NestOur superb cottage sleeps up to two people, perfect for a romantic break away. It has a similar layout to Owls Cottage. Everything is on one level and the doors are wide enough to allow for wheelchair users. Like Owls, Bird’s Nest has an open plan living area, with a kitchen leading off from this. An electric wood burner stove in the lounge adds a warm glow on chilly winter evenings. The well equipped kitchen comes with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment and coffee machine.
The bedroom is perfect for a great night’s sleep and the bathroom has a combined bath/shower which is suitable for wheelchair access to the bath and toilet.
Each cottage has a small garden and there is ample space for parking right outside the cottages. Garden tables and chairs are provided, and barbeque facilities, to make the most of warm summer evenings.
Guests enjoy watching great-spotted woodpeckers feeding on the nut feeders opposite the cottage and walking along footpaths and quiet country lanes. If you enjoy nature, visit our bird hide at our wetland nature reserve, a pleasant 15 mins walk from the cottages.
Visiting Cockhill & Exploring SomersetYou can visit Longleat with its park, stately home and numerous activities for children, it has something for all the family. Go to Cheddar to explore the Caves and try Cheddar cheese made in the town, or visit the witch at Wookey Hole.
Our cottages are ideal for those interested in exploring National Trust properties with several ‘house and garden highlights’ nearby, including Montacute House, Lytes Cary, Tintinhull House, Stourhead and Barrington Court. The gardens at Stourhead are stunning, especially when the rhododendrons are out between late April and June.
