All about Christmas Cottage

From Ground Level

The cottage is accessed from a metal side gate and up a flight of steep stone stairs where you will arrive at the lower deck –  a great place for people watching.

First Floor
Inside you enter a large kitchen/diner with conservatory roof making it light and airy. The kitchen is fully fitted with gas hob, electric double oven, integrated fridge, freezer and washing machine and there is plenty of cupboard space for groceries. The dining table sits five guests comfortably and enjoys views over the river Yeo and park opposite. Through the wooden double doors is the large lounge with corner sofa which comfortably sits five guests. There is a fully decorated Christmas tree, feature beams and wood burning stove for use in the winter months. The lounge has dual aspect double glazed windows enjoying views of the river Yeo and park.

Second floor
Upstairs is a small landing which leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom.  The ‘Robin Bedroom’ features a king size bed  with pocket sprung mattress. There is a fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers for clothes. This room enjoys double aspect double glazed windows with views of the river and waterfall.

The ‘Woodland Bedroom’ has a small double (4ft) bed and pocket sprung mattress. The room enjoys double aspect windows with views of the garden, park and river Yeo and waterfall. There are two small three drawer units as well as a built-in wardrobe.

To the rear of property is the ‘Elf Room’, a single bedroom with a small single bed and foam mattress.

The bathroom is part tiled with a separate shower and free standing bathtub. There is LED lighting including a back lit mirror that creates a soft light for relaxing in the bath.

The garden is very unique being situated on the side of Cheddar Gorge, four stories above the road. The garden is accessed from the back door, located in the kitchen. Up two flights of narrow steep stairs you arrive at a large decking and gravel garden. The large wooden decking area stretches the full width of the property and enjoys views of the river, waterfall, Jacobs Ladder and lower gorge. There are a wooden table and chairs plus four plastic lounging chairs to enjoy people watching and sunsets.

Strictly no ball games. Pets must be kept on leads at all times.
You are very high and right next to a busy main road so for your own and the road users safety please do not climb over or cross any barriers.  Rocks and other debris can fall from the cliff face at any time, so users of Christmas Cottage do so at their own risk.

Other things to note
Secure key safe box for front door key.
Parking avilable in Queens Row car park opposite the property – See Just Park (maximum £5 per day depending on arrival/departure times – free from 6pm to 9am)
The property is situated on the busy B3134 road ‘The Cliffs’ which is a main thoroughfare into and out of Cheddar Gorge and The Medip Hills. As such it can be busy and noisey at times. Cheddar Gorge is a popular area for gatherings of all vehicle types.
Due to the inherent dangers of the location (proximity to main road, steep steps and cliff face garden), facilities and decoration, Christmas Cottage is not recommended for children.
