This 17th century hideaway offers the perfect blend of original charm and modern airiness.

Set in 100 acres of farmland, this property is surrounded by open countryside home to ducks, hens, guinea fowl, sheep and horses. Ideally situated for exploring both Somerset and Dorset, the cottage is within easy reach of the fossil-rich beaches of the Jurassic Coast, the fascinating Fleet Air Arm Museum and Cheddar Gorge. Closer to home, an abundance of walks through nearby villages can be discovered from the doorstep, while cyclists will enjoy being on National Route 26 of the National Cycle Network.

Sympathetically updated to offer 21st century comforts, the cottage still retains plenty of original charm, from flagstone flooring to exposed beams and leaded windows. Prepare romantic meals for two in the modern kitchen, which overlooks the garden through a pretty window and contains an electric oven, microwave, fridge, table-top freezer and washer/dryer. Once prepared, enjoy meals beside the charming exposed stone wall in the spacious lounge/diner. After a long day on foot, relax and unwind in the cosy lounge area beyond where there is an electric fire, TV, DVD and hi-fi. The double bedroom is light and airy with an exposed beam, rural views and wooden flooring. The bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom with separate shower.

The cottage is in a really lovely location. Very peaceful and quiet but within easy reach of lots of attractions including into Dorset and Devon. It's also handy for shopping in Yeovil and there are plenty of pubs in the surrounding area for evening meals. Mary and Bill made us feel very welcome and there are plenty of animals on the farm to make aRead more fuss of! We had a fantastic week here and would not hesitate to go back. A good place to get away from the rat race and recharge your batteries. Hide

Couple very nice & friendly. Location OK for the whole of that area. Plenty to see & do. The cottage was old & quaint & adequate but not highly appointed. I would put it at 2-3 star, no more. But all in all very nice.

The cottage is lovely and the owners are very friendly. The rural setting and the quietness of the cottage are very relaxing. The location of the place near so many National Trust properties in Somerset and Dorset is a plus. Nearby Goose Slade Farm Shop will supply most food needs.
