Property code: ASHER

This property is situated on the edge of the village of Compton Dundon, in the heart of the Somerset countryside, and yet is less than five miles away from two very different towns, both of which make interesting places for day visits. The town of Street is home to the Clarks shopping village, and is a mecca for bargain-hunting shoppers who will love browsing the factory outlet stores. Meanwhile, the historic town of Glastonbury has a range of quirky shops, independent eateries, and is home to the peaceful Chalice Well Gardens, and the atmospheric ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, said to be the final resting place of King Arthur. This property is perfectly located for bird watching on the Somerset levels with the starling murmurations and directly from the property you can walk up Lollover Hill which is a Site of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) for ornithology.

As soon as guests arrive at this property, they will immediately be able to see just how much thought has been out into creating a very special place to stay. The oak frame which supports the building has very much been made a feature of the property, with exposed beams and huge windows giving the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner an imposing feeling of grandeur. The lounge area has a range of comfortable seating which has been arranged so as to make the most of the views across the large gardens, and also relax with a good film on the TV/DVD. At the other end of this spacious room, the bespoke kitchen is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, and washing machine. Towards the rear of this space, close to the kitchen area, there is a set of twin beds which provide an extra sleeping space, making this property suitable for up to four guests. The bright bathroom, with a shower-over-bath and WC is also located on the ground floor, whilst the double bedroom is situated on a mezzanine level which is accessed via open-tread wooden stairs. There are skylight windows here which make it possible to lie in bed and look at the stars, but guests should be aware that the room does have a certain degree of reduced head-height.

Outside, there is a spacious lawned garden for guests to enjoy, within which the owners have provided garden furniture and a BBQ, making it easy to enjoy alfresco meals in this peaceful location. Guests are welcome also to explore the owners land and woodland and meet the animals on site.

This property is huge with plenty of space for everyone. The rear being south facing meant sunshine all day. The enclosed garden was also great affording a safe space for the dog to explore and relax. The owners could make so much more if the rear area if a larger patio are was provide with BBQ and the garden tidied to provide a more relaxed gardenRead more rather than just an outside space. The property is a good 1.5 mile walk by road into the village if you fancy going to the pub. Perfectly located Hide

Warm but tired, needs a complete refurbishment and the grounds are very untidy. We were most concerned when the landlady burst through the front door unannounced, as she thought we were out because the car was not outside, when she saw my wife she left giving no explanation or apology!
