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.
Outside, there is a sunny and spacious garden with patio, lawn and picnic bench for enjoying al fresco BBQs. Guests are also invited to make use of the 142-acre reservoir on site where fishing, kayaking and yachting are all possible.
