Picture 1 of 31. The Pump House stands at the centre of a large wildlife meadow.
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. With walks on the doorstep, a dog is welcome here and you are also invited to explore the Owner's beautiful gardens and use the shared tennis court. The Pump House is a short stroll across fields, or by road, from the local pub and the village also has a farm shop with a cafe (both offer free WiFi).
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. 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 Montacute House near Yeovil 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 whist watching a match. For the energetic, a secure bicycle shed is provided for you and so you can set off on two wheels – the Parrett Way is just a stone's throw away – finding some lovely country pubs to stop off in en route.
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. TV, DVD/CD player and wood-burner. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine/drier and dishwasher.
