Nestled into the Mendip hills Mendip House is a beautiful old stone farmhouse with spectacular views overlooking the Cheddar valley and the town of Axbridge. The facade has a French feel which its owner, Soraya, has emphasised in the use of colour and rustic decor.

The house itself is great for a large family gatherings or a get together with friends. The ground floor consists of a spacious open plan area with a modern kitchen and French doors that open out to a patio, here you can enjoy dining al fresco whilst taking in the views.

Upstairs on the first floor, you can find a spacious kingsize bedroom with a door leading to the side garden, plus a cosier double room and gorgeous bathroom.

There is garden access from a bedroom on each of the upper floors, perfect for those that are early risers who like to take a morning stroll!

This is great for the couple that want to enjoy a little privacy during their stay as there is a cosy lounge area here with a large selection of books to enjoy too! The bathroom is spacious and features a gorgeous original stone wall plus handmade Mexican shower tiles. There is also a double bedroom with access to the garden at the back of the house and woods.

There is also a sofa bed in the snug and space for a blow up mattress if you wish to add an extra 3 to your party!
