Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This is the perfect place to hire for a group of friends or family wanting to share a holiday or celebrate a special occasion. The accommodation is flexible depending on the size of your group. We have a cottage, two cabins, two vintage caravans, a treehouse and during the summer in our orchard we have created a glamping area with two ready-to-go bell tents. The Twig is located on the edge of Mells up a mile long private driveway. We can accommodate up to 18 people - more if you want to camp.

The space
The Twig can easily accommodate two or three families or a big group of friends.
Twig Cottage consists of a downstairs sitting room with dining area, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. The main bedroom has a king-sized double bed. The sitting room has a sofa bed which can sleep one adult or two children comfortably. The kitchen is fully fitted with a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, stove and microwave cooker. There is a separate bathroom with shower.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, a large double room and a second smaller bedroom, with a bed that can be configured as a double or a single. The upstairs space also has a sitting room with a sofa bed, a dining area, and kitchen. There is an upstairs bathroom with a bath. The kitchen is fully fitted with a fridge, dishwasher, oven, stove and microwave cooker.

Also available for guests is a treehouse with its own central heating which can accommodate two adults. Downstairs has its own private bathroom with a shower and a loo. Next door is a shepherds hut kitchen with its own sitting area. We also have two fully heated converted horseboxes/cabins with their own bathrooms which can sleep a further 6 people. There is also a vintage caravan which can sleep a further two, and during the summer months we have created two ready to go bell tents in the orchard which can accommodate a further four.

There is a huge amount of outside space to be enjoyed. Just in front of the property is a sunny walled garden where you can sit out on the table and chairs provided and eat al fresco. There is a large banqueting area which can accommodate up to 14 people. On the other side of the garden is a large tree lined pond with a pretty water feature where the tree house, vintage caravan, shepherds hut and one of the cabins is situated. In the next field along is another converted horse box set in its own large field and a separate cabin which can also be hired. Both these spaces have beautiful views. On the other side of the garden you can take a stroll through the orchard and walk across the field to the village. There is also a lovely play area for children.
