You can sit around the campfire under the stars (we have very little light pollution) and barbecue on the kadai firepit. We can provide homemade sausages in season.
We like to grow fruit and vegetables and make our own preserves, we also keep chickens and pigs. If you would like our own homemade seasonal produce – currently eggs, jam, sausages, and raspberry vinegar, you are welcome to what we have in the larder at a reasonable cost.
We have baby equipment, toys, spare wellies, fishing nets etc. Let us know your needs and we will do our best to meet them.
Children are welcome to feed the hens and collect eggs with us.
We have a village hall in Great Elm and the stunning Mells tithe barn which can be hired for a trestle country style gathering for a family celebration. We can also organise a local caterer if you need one.

We loved everything about this cottage – great attention to detail and a perfect retreat in such an interesting and beautiful area. A visit to Hauser & Wirth and lunch, the walk to Mells and the Frome Independent market all highly recommended. We rent a cottage each year for our get together and this is easily the best we have been to.

Thanks for a very relaxing summer holiday! Our children enjoyed playing in the garden room, on the lawn and in the cowshed so much that we were able to read the paper in peace. The teenagers found their own amusement in the woods and went fishing in the river, which they could not do at home. Great to be so close to Longleat as you need a full day there, so much to be done, also the new centre at Stonehenge is awesome. Ideal for a family holiday, something for everyone.

So glad we found you! We had a wonderful stay with games of boules on the lawn and that great wood fired pizza oven which kept the cowshed cozy well into the night. We had a fab mixed grill at the Talbot Inn, and a walk round Stourhead is an absolute must. This is a very fun and social house and we look forward to returning.
