Day 2 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a stay at Corrugated Cottage WWII in Somerset.
Find out more about their visit:
This property has been beautifully put together with 100's of collector finds going back to the time of WWII and the Land Girls era.
It feels like you are walking into a museum but at the same time it is cosy and full of charm.
Great to finally meet Mary and Michael, with are passionate about this property and with whom we have worked since 2016.
You enter this unique property into a 1940's style kitchen - lots of things you may remember from grandma’s house if you are of a certain age. There is a hob for simple cooking and a small fridge.
Walking through to the lounge area you can discover a range of games, a cosy fireplace, desk, sofa and memorabilia galore including a fabulous old radiogram that had been converted to a bluetooth speaker! No TV of course.
As everything is authentic here there are twin beds in the bedroom with eiderdowns - off the lounge.
There is a downstairs bathroom with old style chain flush loo which makes a (quiet) air raid noise when flushed and when you do a couple of other things in the cottage. I wont spoil all surprises. A rolled top bath is found there along with more reminders from the time.
Up some narrow stairs is a loft space with 2 more single mattresses. This would be a great place for children to visit to learn about the past!
Food and Drink:
The owners had supplied milk and a bottle of ale, plus tea and real coffee is supplied as well as other helpful bits.
The Greyhouse Pub is just a short stroll away in the village, ideal for a beer after a walk or alternatively you can sit in the tranquil garden and relax with a warm drink and take in the view or starry night sky.
Jess' top tip:
Make the most of the authentic details - read a wartime newspaper and play old games.
Alternatively explore the local area with Glastonbury and the Tor nearby.
