Croft Cottage effortlessly combines style and luxury all into one.

The Hideaway is a truly delightful, hidden gem. You could be fooled that you’re in a boutique hotel in this handsome retreat. After a busy day of doing nothing, slip into the roll top bath, light the log burner and relax with a glass of bubbly.
Lastly, the impeccable Candlestick Cottage concludes the accommodation on offer at Fords Croft Cottages. This classy abode is perhaps one of our favourites! Enjoy creating a culinary masterpiece in the bright kitchen. Then, pop on a film or enjoy watching the crackling open fire. Take a soak in the fabulous grey roll top bath in the bedroom, before sinking under the sheets in the kingsize bed.
For the lovers of freedom and being outside, the gardens at Fords Croft Cottages don’t disappoint. Enjoy a morning coffee from your tranquil patio area or dine alfresco during those balmy months. A dip in a hot tub may seem unnecessary, especially if you are staying in a cottage with a freestanding roll top bath. However, every detail has been thought of here, and guests can enjoy booking a dip in the wood fired Hillside Hot Tub. Watch the sunrise or sunset from the tub and soak up the panoramic views of the Somerset countryside.
