The Playhouses – originally built for grandchildren Ruth, Tom and Charlotte – showcase Angela and Alban’s remarkable attention to detail and Alban’s many skills gathered over a lifetime of working as a master craftsman. The creativity on display makes Spindle Cottage one of the most unique holiday cottages in Somerset.
“After I finished the main house I built a gazebo and potting shed for the garden, and then the little cottage for Ruth when she was born. When Tom came along we couldn’t leave him out so I made him the Elizabethan Lodge. And then it seemed obvious that Charlotte would need one too, so I built her a shop and post office.” (Alban, 2019)
