Information on Cottage Holidays in Pylle


The village has a church with an original 15th century tower, and a 17th century manor house with a walled garden. It also has some specialist retail outlets. You don’t have to go far for quality meat when you’re staying in Pylle on a self-catering holiday. Jon Thorner’s butchers and farm shops have an excellent reputation in Somerset and in Pylle Jon supplies locally sourced meat and other fine foods. You can sample some of the home made food in the shop’s Coffee Den that is open for breakfast, lunch or just a snack. Antique collectors or browsers will find an Aladdin’s cave on their doorstep when they visit the Pylle Emporium and Gallery. Fine art, vintage furniture, clocks, watches, jewellery, shabby chic and ornaments are all represented in the store.

Whilst taking a cottage holiday in this part of the West Country why not visit nearby Shepton Mallet.  This town has become a great attraction for antique collectors and dealers with its own collection of shops selling art and artefacts. It hosts a giant flea market and a number of antique shows throughout the year, so plan your visit to Pylle to coincide with these events if you’re looking to add to your collection.

History played an important part in the development of this area of Somerset, nowhere more so than at Glastonbury Abbey. With its roots going back to the seventh century the abbey and Glastonbury Tor have been the subject of both noted events and myths and are a great place for history buffs to visit. King Arthur is supposed to have been baptised and buried there and it is said that Jesus visited the place with his uncle Joseph of Aramathea. It was here too that the fairy folk once lived. It is no myth that today the romantic ruins set in 36 acres of beautiful landscaping are a major attraction and are just a short drive from Pylle.

Another nostalgic attraction enjoyed by tourists and locals is the East Somerset Railway steam trains based at Cranmore, three miles east of Shepton Mallet. Events and excursions are operated for both adults and children.

For relaxed cottage holidays, Pylle could be an excellent choice.  Whether you need to find a romantic retreat or a rural country cottage, we hope you find the best cottage to meet your needs on Country Cottages Online.

Book a Pylle cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Somerset on holiday.
