We have specific options available within our all inclusive package but for further more elaborate options please check out our sky’s the limit page.


Imagine the perfect day, the vibrant green lawn, the fresh British air, the silence of the surroundings – and what’s that, no wind! We have some truly outstanding golf courses, all within driving distance from Well Cottage, so make the most of them and get ready to take your swing!

Spa retreats

In addition to our in house, inclusive spa treatment options we can also arrange some pamper time at a local spa.

Perhaps you would enjoy a full day of indulgence in which case we can arrange this as mentioned in our sky’s the limit recommendations.

Horse Riding

Whether you’re a horse riding enthusiast or you’ve never had the opportunity of spending much time with these majestic animals before, horse riding is a wonderful activity for the whole family.

Soak up the magic of the morning or give yourself something to look forward to in the afternoon and get out and see the surrounding Countryside in the best way possible.


There are some brilliant, natural climbing and abseiling spots around our local area in Somerset. Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills. It’s famous for its caves. One of which, is where the oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, estimated to be 9,000 years old, was found in 1903. The climbing here is for both beginners and experts.

Hot Air Balloon Rides

Up, up, up and away! Take to the skies and enjoy a birds’-eye view of the wondrous marvels that the English countryside has to offer from a very different perspective, with the clouds passing by! This is a favourite experience for our guests who are looking for something extra special to enjoy with their partner.

Hiking/Rambling/ Countryside Walks

With there being so many gorgeous options of countryside walks and hikes close to Well Cottage, and also farther afield if you’re looking for more of an adventure, a vacation with us is the perfect choice for anyone wanting to stay active.

We can create with a personalised itinerary of varied walks and hikes especially for your stay. Choose between coastal, cliff, hilly, woodland walks or even a gentle meditative stroll. Walks can either be guided, or not – everything is your choice.

You also have the option of simply going on a whim and venturing out beyond the garden of Well Cottage. You’ll immediately be encountered by miles of magical forest and field pathways to explore in the surrounding countryside of your home away from home.


We provide complimentary bikes during your stay here with us at Well Cottage. We know that there’s no better way than a good bike ride to really get to know an area – so we encourage this experience for you to make the most of the natural beauty surrounding us.

With the wind in your hair, you’ll feel free while exploring the quiet lane surrounding Well Cottage. All of our local cycle tracks are safe for all of the family, and although you’re welcome to enjoy this one by yourself, we would also be happy to guide you if you’d prefer to leave the map at home and enjoy the ride.


The peace and patience of waiting to suddenly and unexpectedly be thrown into the rush of the disappearing bob, winding in your reel, tugging hard to excitedly see what the catch of the day could be, is just an experience quite unlike any other!

A day spent out by the water fishing with the family is a pleasure that is both peaceful and exhilarating.  Whether you wish to spend your fishing trip out at sea as a day trip or at a nearby fishing lake, we have all the options.

Restaurant Experiences

If you’re able to tear yourself away from Laura’s cooking and you’re looking for a extra special dining experience out, we are happy to recommend some delicious brunch, lunch or dinner spots depending on what your tastebuds so desire.

Although eating out (if in addition to our inclusive dining out experience) is not included in our inclusive packages, we will organise all of the travel to and from restaurants and arrange your reservations for you so that your foodie experience away from Well Cottage goes smoothly, without any stress.


Your English Cottage Vacation can be as relaxed as you’d like it to be during the day, but as soon the sun sets, it’s not time for bed! Get dressed up and ready to go out. Well Cottage is close enough to spectacular theatres, hilarious comedy clubs, outstanding night clubs and brilliant bars all within driving distance. With your private driver and transport you won’t have to worry about getting home, who is designated driver or anyone missing out on any fun. So let your hair down and enjoy the British nightlife for everything that it has to offer.

(Unscheduled events, entry fees, food and drinks during evenings out will be at guests own expense)


Nearby or if you’d like to venture further afield, there are a vast array of great English pubs to pop into! Drop in for a tea and scone or enjoy a draft beer or cider for a much more amusing walk home!

City Tours

Explore the nearby cities to really experience this area! If you’d like to stay closer to home, we recommend visiting Salisbury to see its impressive English Gothic Cathedral with lovely boutiques and tea shops. Or choose the gorgeous cobbled-stoned, World Heritage site and city of Bath to try the little homemade fudge shops there and to admire the beautiful architecture that makes it so very rich in history. You’ll feel as if you’ve stepped back in time!

If you’d rather a more modern, fast-paced scene, we can go large and head to London for everything and anything that your heart so desires.
