Step through the front door and you'll find yourself in a beautifully petite love nest. Light greys coordinate with black, creating a cosy, hidden-away feel with a touch of Victoriana about it. We love the huge mirrors, black lampshades, wood burning stove and fab antiquities such as the medicine bottles - a nod to Apothecary Cottage's original incarnation as the chemist for the village - and impressive lighting. This is a chic retreat, a lover's getaway in a terrific location to explore the delights of Somerset, such as the Mendip Hills, Wells, Glastonbury and the pretty coastline. The village of Wedmore is pretty and just a short walk away with a host of places to eat and shop.
Living and eating

The ground floor is open-plan, with the snug living room to the front of the property. A vintage sofa for two lies close to the log burner - perfect for snuggling up on after a walk on the Mendips. A television is on hand should you want to catch up on a series or have a film night. Head towards the back and you'll find the fab kitchen - extremely well-equipped for such a small cottage, including a coffee maker for a morning brew and pretty Sophie Conran tableware. We love the soft greys of the cupboards and the warm wooden worktops, whilst the hand-made dining table, cute and romantic for two, is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two.


Climb the striking wrought-iron spiral staircase and you'll find yourself in the pretty en suite bedroom, where vaulted ceilings and windows that overlook the village and the distant Mendip Hills await. The super-comfy double bed makes for long lie-ins whilst we love the fab antique lighting high above - cleverly created by the ingenious owners.


The en suite shower room has a surprisingly spacious shower to wake you up in the mornings. The sink area is just stunning with a reclaimed vanity table, sink and striking vintage newspaper wallpaper, all in shades of black, cream and grey.

Outdoor space

To the back lies a small open courtyard garden, with a bistro table and two chairs ideal for a sundowner or alfresco breakfast on warm summer days and a place to secure your dog.


Apothecary Cottage has WiFi so if you need to stay in contact with the outside world, you can.


Two small well-behaved dogs are very welcome at Apothecary Cottage, we charge £35 per week or short break.


There is parking for one car to the rear of the cottage.

In the Area

Apothecary Cottage is situated in the picture-box pretty village of Wedmore, sometimes called the Isle of Wedmore, due to being in an elevated position on the Somerset Levels. It's just a short walk from the cottage to the centre of the village where you'll find two wonderful places to eat - The George Inn, a Grade II listed former home, and The Swan, run by executive chef Tom Blake from River Cottage. There's also a host of other eateries from cafes to delis, alongside lots of shops including Wedmore Village Store where you can pick up lots of locally-produced goodies to take back to the cottage.

Head to Wilkin's Cider Farm for a traditional Somerset experience. Sample the golden stuff (on the house) then pick up a bottle or two to take home with you. The Mendip Hills are just a short drive away and a must-do; the walking here is fantastic, and you'll witness the most beautiful views. Glastonbury is also a short drive away and a must-see for the Tor, Abbey and Sacred Well. The city of Wells is just down the road and has a beautiful cathedral and a fab market. Bath is a 55-minute drive away and great to visit during longer stays. Wooky Hole Caves, with over 60,000 years of history and Cheddar Gorge, a limestone gorge set in the Mendip Hills, are both wonderful natural landmarks and well worth a visit.
