In beautiful Somerset, past a Norman church on the right and the river on the left, you’ll find the Coach House Feather Down Collection location. It’s spread across 70 acres, with a big, beautiful forest of 30 acres and 30 acres of grazing for between 30 and 100 sheep. The Brue and Alham Rivers meet close by the house.
The single log cabin is located in a very pretty field with views towards the hills and a couple of deer living in the surrounding area. Nearby is a waterfall children can stand under, and a pool to paddle and play in. Kingfishers and dippers visit the clear river water, and otters have been spotted too. Why not try fly fishing for brown trout and cook up a wonderful meal? Rods can be borrowed if you don’t have your own, and a temporary license can be bought on the spot at the local post office: £3.75 for 1 day or 8-day coverage for £10. Children (up to 12) don’t need a license to fish. Instruction can be booked for beginners starting on the lawn with a bowl of water.
To explore, take the river walk through majestic oak and ash trees. Children love to swing from the trees and tear around in the big field. Get truly back to nature by picking wild garlic and using it in your evening meal. Meet the bantams and chickens and sample the fresh eggs. The little shop has a select stock of local produce like bacon, juices, yoghurt and cheese. You can bring the friendly family dog to the Coach House too, as long as it’s kept on a lead.
Over the field, through a copse, is the Pilgrim’s Way and charming old Packhorse Bridge, plus great paddling in the river. Just a 5-10 minute drive away is a public golf course with a very good children’s section. Nearby lies Glastonbury, with the Tor to climb, the lovely Abbey grounds and of course the famous festival, for which the Coach House offers an accommodation alternative. Beautiful Wells, the smallest city in the UK, has a lovely cathedral, shops, cafes and the famous Saturday market. Many pubs and restaurants are nearby too.

A wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, the family loved that it could still feel like camping building lots of camp fires, we loved being in log cabin very cosy with log burner and candles. Well placed to visit nearby attractions. Very welcoming owners.
