About & Contact

Delightful 5 star cottage for 4 people

Deerleap is the smallest of the three cottages at Lilycombe Farm. Named after the shy visitors in the adjacent wood, Deerleap enjoys the same exceptional level of comfort and style as the other cottages. The 15m indoor pool can be booked for your private use and there is a cinema and playroom for rainy days too.

Upstairs, there are 2 double bedrooms each with en suite bath or shower room. The pocket-sprung 6ft beds can also be made up as twin beds. From a bedroom window, there is a view across the landscape as far as Bath.

Downstairs is designed for being sociable, with an open plan sitting, dining and kitchen space. The woodburning fire keeps things cosy in winter and a large smart TV provides the default entertainment. The kitchen is well equipped with oven, microwave, induction hob, washer/dryer, and all the necessary equipment.

Outside, adjoining the cottage, is a terrace with table and chairs. The cottage has its own garden and parking. There is plenty of room for playing. A barbecue is provided.

The indoor pool is heated to 30 degrees and, at 15 metres long, is fabulous for proper exercise, but fun for children too. A simple booking system means that each of the three cottages can reserve private swimming time for their exclusive use. The projector lets you watch MTV or your DVDs while swimming. There is a Treatment Room for parties who have booked a bit of pampering.

Lilycombe's cinema has a large screen projector for which you can download your favourite movies from Netflix. There are toys and games for young children too, providing some staying-in entertainment.

Deerleap is in a lovely rural location within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can make circular walks, some involving pubs, through lovely country straight from your door. But those who want to recharge their batteries may be happy just to stay in and enjoy a comfortable rest.

Reviews for Deerleap at Lilycombe Farm

Meet the owner

Jane or Richard Clayton

The traditional stone farm buildings at Lilycombe Farm have been carefully restored by owners Jane and Richard Clayton, ensuring that their essential Mendip character has not been lost. Jane and Richard have an interior design business and their design skills are reflected in the quality of the interior furnishings within the properties. They live in the farmhouse, which is not far from the three cottages, but each property is private and self-contained.
