Picture 1 of 31. This is a view of the front of Purtington Barn Cottage. There is a sheltered patio and the open gardens, stream and pond are beyond.
Tranquil Purtington Barn Cottage is in a glorious rural setting close to the Somerset, Dorset and east Devon borders – a perfect central base for enjoying the South West – within easy reach of Exeter, the Jurassic Coast, and further afield the north Devon coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor. Stop off en route as you pass Stonehenge and Stourhead. This cottage is exceptionally spacious and the living area has French windows (low lintels, be careful) onto the patio and the beautifully kept gardens beyond. The two double bedrooms overlook the grounds and farmland, one has an en suite bathroom and there is a second bathroom too. Enjoy the stream-side seat at the bottom of the garden (there is a drop from the garden) and watch the wildlife in the conservation meadow. Make the most of a special offer to use the nearby Cricket St Thomas Estate Spa and pool. The cottage, adjoining the Owner’s home, is presented to a very high standard and feels completely private. There is a private water supply, regularly tested. Please note that the changeover times are 4pm on arrival and 10am on departure.
