This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.

Birch is a quirky 300 year old cottage. She’s packed full of original features. Birch is perfectly placed for exploring all that Somerset has to offer. Wells, Glastonbury, Street and the Mendips are all within 30 minutes drive. The city of Bath is only an hours drive.

The cottage is 300 hundred years old and the interior reflects this so if modern and sparkling is you’re thing then this isn’t for you. I found the style charming and the log fire was excellent, even in June, because the cottage has very thick stone walls so was cool. We couldn’t…
