History of the ledgelets
Bermuda history perfectly combines with modern island style at the Ledgelets Cottage Collective - a tranquil yet modern tourist retreat steeped in personality.
John's family has lived in Somerset for over 275 years. His grandfather - John Young the first settled into The Ledgelets property in the late 1930s and began taking in paying guests on an impulse. A unique cottage community was born. The Ledgelets officially opened as tourist accommodation in 1948. John and Alison are committed to his legacy, keeping alive many of the traditions he started and creating a Bermuda sanctuary where visitors are warmly welcomed and treated like family.
The cottages retain their sense of history and all that makes The Ledgelets a special place. John and Alison have kept the original architecture and created a memorable place to stay, with all modern amenities to make your visit as comfortable and as special as possible.
