With its iconic grass-covered dome, round windows and glowing lights by the front door, this elegant underground house looks like it’s been pulled straight from the pages of a fairytale. Set within the peaceful surroundings of Rookery Farm in Wells, the property offers families a stunning countryside escape where everyone (including grown-ups) can let their imaginations run wild.
Forget dark and gloomy. Quackers may be semi-subterranean but there’s nothing drab about its light-filled and beautifully designed space. Expect the most luxurious of touches throughout like underfloor heating blue tooth ceiling speakers and led colour lights. Materials like wood and brick lend a rustic chic, while meticulous styling and contemporary furnishings mean visiting guests will be able to unwind in complete comfort. Inside you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen complete with stools and breakfast bar where home-cooked dinners can be rustled up and enjoyed together, as well as a lovely lounge with its deliciously plush sofa along with a flat screen TV for movie nights. The two wonderful en suite bedrooms really amp up the glam and you’ll be tempted to indulge in an extra hour or two of sleep in the mornings on sumptuous king size beds that sit beneath great circular windows.
Outside there’s more to discover. A magical garden with countryside views and a paved patio with picnic bench for alfresco dining as well as a marvellous private wood-fired hot tub where you and the kids can do a bit of stargazing. Pack a picnic and venture into the sprawling Somerset countryside. The onsite Reckless Desserts busts with delicious goodies for you to stock up your hamper along the way, or you can enjoy breakfast (or lunch or both) at Hartleys Kitchen which also does takeaways. 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
