About Strawberry Cottage

Strawberry Cottage is situated in the beautiful Town of Axbridge, nestling at the foot of the Mendips. It has been recently renovated, and retains many period features. The cottage is just a few minutes walk to the town centre, where you will find King John's hunting lodge; now a national trust museum. There are two pubs, a tea room and shops in the town; you will also find The Roxy, one of the smallest cinemas in the country. Cheddar is just under three miles away. Wells, Wookey Hole and Glastonbury are also a short drive away. There are lots of walks to enjoy; the cottage also sits on part of the Strawberry line cycle track.
