About the neighbourhood
The Cottage Beyond, Kittisford, Somerset The Cottage Beyond is only 10 minutes from Junction 26 on the M5, yet enjoys the unspoiled natural beauty and calm of rolling green rural countryside. We often describe our immediate area as living in the boondooks - a land hidden from the outside world. A secret, perfect world, yet not far from civilisation! There are lovely walks to take around the farm, with our own animals to see and all the wildlife around here & the surrounding area, maps provided. There is a local shop & pub with a great skittles alley only 2 miles away. There are plenty of other excellent village pubs with excellent food in the neighbourhood and an incredible micro-brewery, with a pub onsite only 3 miles away. Something for everyone - no more than 40 minutes drive aw...
