Cider cottage is situated in the heart of the Somerset Levels. Part of the 17th century Muchelney Ham Farm the cottage, which sleeps five people, is self contained and an ideal escape from the fast-paced modern world. This historic area close to the ruins of Muchelney Abbey offers great opportunities for walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and fishermen and the cottage, whilst furnished to a high standard, offers the peace of times long gone. The garden from the cottage stretches down to a stream with local wildlife including deer, heron and swans. In the summer it is an ideal spot to enjoy a picnic or a cool glass of wine.
