This unique pied-a-terre, close to the Somerset/Dorset border not far from the Jurassic Coast, stands in its own private wildlife meadow. Perfect for couples, this idyllic retreat has wide doors into the light open plan living-room with its sandstone floor, welcoming wood-burner and high quality furnishings. A bespoke spiral staircase leads up to the oak-floored galleried bedroom and bathroom. Two dogs are welcome here and there are walks on the doorstep as well as a beautiful hedged garden for you and an open invitation to enjoy the delightful gardens of the original manor house and to use the shared tennis court. The local pub and a farm shop with a cafe (both offer free WiFi) are a short stroll away.
Fling open the French doors to the sunny south-facing patio and sit beneath the oak pergola for al fresco breakfast or a romantic evening meal. As well as your own wildlife meadow, the gardens of The Manor Farm are a delight to explore and you will come across the sheep, chickens, ducks and cows that live here too! The Pump House is an easy drive from the stunning Jurassic Coast, where the nearest beach is at West Bay, Bridport – the now famous setting for the television series Broadchurch. In fact there must be something special about this historic area as Barrington Court near Ilminster was the setting for the television adaptation of Wolf Hall! For a recuperative day staying put, wander to that quintessential feature of rural England, the village cricket ground, just the other side of the meadow, and enjoy a cool Somerset cider whilst watching a match. For the energetic, a secure bicycle shed is provided for you so you can set off on two wheels – the River Parrett Trail is just a stone's throw away – finding some lovely country pubs to stop off in en route.
