View Room Information
If Bilbo Baggins had a penchant for interior design he’d have created Wabbit; a fantasy hobbit house within The Little Shire that’s every bit as luxurious as it is whimsical. Tucked into a carefully designed portion of undulating green landscape on Rookery Farm in Wells, this perfectly formed pod offers couples and families a unique and magical escape within one of Somerset’s prettiest corners of countryside.

Inside is cosy and cool with serpentine lines creating a contemporary burrow; the walls and ceilings blending into each other in one seamlessly curvy space. Exposed brick work, timber panelling and plush furnishings lend a rustic yet superbly stylish quality to the interior where chunky knits and waffle linens make for an inviting sanctuary that’s just right for cosying up or winding down in.

The living area features an L-shaped upholstered bench sofa with plush scatter cushions to snuggle into, and is open plan with a fully equipped modern kitchen complete with breakfast bar. Together with five leather topped barstools, it provides the ideal spot to enjoy a coffee or breakfast, or to catch up on the day’s plans before heading outdoors for a morning of adventure.

Behind three off-beat doorways lie the cosiest of bedrooms with the master featuring a king size bed and its own little circular window on brass hinges allowing guests to take a private peek at the outside world. The second bedroom is light-filled and comfy with French doors opening out to let the fresh countryside air in. A third bedroom room creates an enchanting hidey hole for children to discover, with sturdy bunk beds offering a magical place to escape to for an afternoon nap or a read.

There’s more whimsy on offer outside in the form of a private wood fired hot tub, a delightful camping shed with indoor barbecue for toasting marshmallows or grilling hot dogs, and shared playhouse for oodles of carefree fun. Pack a picnic and venture into the sprawling Somerset countryside.

Set within easy reach of a host of trails and countryside walks, this home is also within easy reach of the architecturally beautiful city of Wells meaning plenty to see and do whilst visiting, and for those who fancy something a little closer to home there are fantastic amenities on site that include treatment rooms, a gym and a café bistro with live evening entertainment.
