For a truly unique holiday, try this beautifully handcrafted wooden Somerset roundhouse. Set in the grounds of the owner's 40-acre organic farm, this Somerset cottage is near the village of Stratton-on-the-Fosse in the Mendips.
The roundhouse is at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, 2 miles from Midsomer Norton and only 12 miles from the beautiful city of Bath. This unusual Somerset holiday cottage, 26' in diameter, offers a perfect romantic retreat for couples or a small family who want to sample a different way of living. Outside, you can stroll straight from the door into the countryside and discover the nearby woodlands and valley, or just relax, sip a refreshing drink and take in the views across the fields.

Located on the eastern edge of the Mendip Hills, the area around the village provides great walks, as well as cycle trails along the old Somerset and Dorset railway.
