Birds Nest self-catering holiday cottage near Castle Cary, Somerset
Birds Nest is the perfect choice for two couples. Although our two cottages are the same size and have a similar layout, Bird's Nest Cottage has been designed with the less-mobile in mind. There are no steps, everything is on one level and the doors are wide enough to allow for wheelchair use, but of course there is no reason why anyone shouldn't find the cottage pleasant to stay in. In this cottage both bedrooms have double beds, making it ideal for two couples. We can also offer you a fold-up bed in the lounge if you need one. If you have children, perhaps Owls Cottage might be more suitable.
Like Owls, Bird's Nest has an open-plan living area, with a kitchen leading off from this. Click here to see a floor plan for the cottages. Throughout the cottage you will see the original beams, a reminder of its humble origins. An electric 'woodburner' stove in the lounge adds a warm glow on chilly winter evenings and you will find lots of brochures so you can plan your next day's activities.
Facilities: The kitchen is equipped with electric cooker, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment and coffee machine. Enjoy cooking some delicious Somerset produce – our guest information folder tells you where to find it! A television with Freeview and built-in DVD is provided in the lounge. The bathroom has a combined bath/shower and is spacious enough for wheelchair access to bath and toilet, although please note that the shower is not a walk-in shower. Both cottages are heated by programmable built-in electric panel heaters in each room and double-glazing throughout ensures that the cottages are warm and cozy, but the thick walls keep them nice and cool in summer. All bed linen and towels are provided and beds are made up ready for your arrival. A washing machine and tumble drier are available for guests at the farmhouse just 50 m away.
Birds Nest cottage has a small secluded garden and there is ample space for parking right outside the cottage. Garden tables and chairs are provided, and barbeque facilities are available to make the most of warm summer evenings.
Guests enjoy watching great-spotted woodpeckers feeding on the nut feeders opposite the cottage. If you enjoy nature, visit our comfortable bird hide at our wetland nature reserve, a pleasant 15 minutes walk from the cottages.
