An art lovers home. Easel Cottage dates from 1880 and sits on the highest point of South Horrington village, just outside Wells, affording it a superb viewpoint. A former part of Mendip Hospital, the cottage is full of charm and character, with art work and vintage furnishings throughout.

The combination of visual drama with comfort and convenience makes Easel Cottage the ideal setting in which to explore the Mendips.
A treat of a retreat from city life.

The space
Formerly, the cottage was part of the Mendip Hospital, and used as a porter’s lodge and staff quarters. It was originally attached to the main house (currently habited by the cottage owners) by a bridge. Easel Cottage has been lovingly brought back to life without losing its original charm, retaining original doors and windows, with the addition of modern comfort. Interiors are quirky, colourful and elegant, supplemented by an eclectic collection of art.

The main house is the home of the owner’s, and of their gallery Andelli Art, and the walls of Easel Cottage are adorned with art, making every room unique. It is an art lover’s paradise, providing your own private gallery for the duration of your stay.

“We have not sought for perfection in the aesthetic for Easel Cottage, rather an eclectic mixture of styles and objects from different periods and places.”
