Collie is a gorgeous little hut in Somerset, nestled in a corner of the owners' working farm and just a short drive from legendary Glastonbury, famous for its Tor, mythical history and of course yearly summer music festival. Being in such a charming, natural setting, Collie provides the perfect escape to the countryside with relaxation definitely on the menu.
On balmy afternoons soak in the wood-fired hot tub taking in the amazing views looking onto the Somerset Levels, a beautifully unchanged and unspoilt landscape. As well as a number of bird and wildlife reserves, this area has an abundance of footpaths and cycling routes just waiting to be explored. In the foreground of your view you have the delight of watching the owners' super-cute Shetland ponies who are full of character!
After a day of adventures, coming back to Collie will be a treat. Inside the organised space offers everything you could need, including a super-comfy sofa, equipped kitchen and fold down table and chairs for holiday meals together. The shepherd's hut is remarkably spacious for its size and creates a gorgeous snuggery for a dreamy countryside retreat.
Cosy up to the wood-burner on chilly nights, or after or a leisurely walk on those crisp autumn afternoons. The owners kindly provide a supply of logs throughout your stay for the hot-tub, fire-pit and wood-burner so you can totally indulge yourself in these luxuries. Being so rural you are likely to be treated to some fabulous sunsets and once you have watched the last rays of the sun disappear, be sure to stay out around the fire-pit and stargaze these unpolluted skies with a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of your favourite.
Somerset is home to some excellent local produce and most famous for its cider and cheddar cheese - treating yourself to both is a must! You can even take a trip to the imposing Cheddar Gorge; Britain's biggest gorge, and see the cheese being made at the visitor centre. For some retail therapy, head to Clarks Village in Street, home to over 90 designer and high street brands. Whether you are looking to explore nature, treat yourself or just relax and switch off, Collie is a perfect choice.
