This charming cottage has been lovingly restored to blend character with contemporary comforts. The property is set within an idyllic rural hamlet, yet within easy reach of many popular attractions.

Set in a rural spot between Bruton, Wincanton and Gillingham, this is the ideal touring base. The nearest town, Gillingham, offers local amenities including pubs, cafes and shops, along with a leisure centre and swimming pool. The hilltop town of Shaftesbury is well worth a visit and is home to the famous Gold Hill. Set within rolling pastureland known as the Blackmore Vale, there is an abundance of routes suitable for walking and riding within this picturesque landscape. Accessible attractions include Stourhead, Salisbury Cathedral, The Longleat Estate, Stonehenge, The Newt in Somerset and Haynes Motor Museum, the Jurassic Coast, Corfe Castle, Dorchester, Weymouth, Monkey World and the Tank Museum.

A driveway leads to the private entrance into this detached property. Once inside you are met with a charming lounge, complete with an inglenook feature fireplace with a cosy wood burner and a TV. Heading through the lounge will take you into the contemporary kitchen. This space is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with an ice compartment. Just next door is a dining room, which gives access to a twin zip-and-link bedroom with 2'6" beds, (which can be arranged as a king-size bed on request). The property has a rear lobby with a useful utility area with a washer/dryer machine. Next door is a contemporary shower room with a shower and WC. From the lounge a steep, narrow and winding set of cottage-style stairs leads to the first floor and an inviting king-sized bedroom with exposed beams. Due to its setting within the eaves, there are areas of restricted head height in this room, which only adds to its character and charm. The bedroom is open to the steep staircase and care should be taken with children.

Heading outside via the main entrance or rear lobby there is a patio with furniture to the front and side of the property and lawns surrounding it on two sides, which boast lovely views over open countryside. To the front of the property, there is off-road parking suitable for two cars, accessed via a gravel driveway.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful cottage in a really tranquil location. The cottage is well equipped with luxury bedding and decor. Inside space was bigger than we thought plenty of room for entertaining. Lovely wild south facing garden from which you can watch the birds and deer.

Wow! This cottage is absolutely stunning and the location is just gorgeous, the bed so cosy and comfy and the cottage was extremely well kitted out, there was absolutely nothing else we needed.......We loved watching the Barn owl searching along the hedge line next to us the field for his supper and Mr and Mrs Fox playing in the bottom of the fieldRead more in the sun. Everything was just so perfect, and the little goodies left for us was such a beautiful touch and such a lovely surprise. Hide

Beautiful little cottage in a great location. The cottage was spotless when we got there and very well equipped. The location is great for exploring, our main attraction was Longleat Safari park which is only about 30 mins away and the Jurassic coast, and sea side towns like Bournemouth only just over an hour away, meant we had a busy week with lotRead mores of exploring to do. The only negative I can think of is the garden could be more secure for dogs and the driveway is very tight for bigger cars. Hide
