This beautifully presented little cottage offers totally enclosed grounds of around 1.5 acres – a delight for those bringing four-legged friends – a fabulous 13 metre heated indoor swimming pool and a tennis court. This is an excellent base for discovering Somerset as well as the Jurassic Coast just over the border in Dorset. The cosy cottage has two double bedrooms, a conservatory style sitting/dining-room, a galley kitchen and a good-sized shower-room. The interior has been beautifully designed and all the lovely finishing touches will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. The grounds, pool and tennis court are shared with The Coach House (3200) and the Owner but you are more than likely to have them all to yourselves.
The swimming pool is in a luxurious separate building and has changing rooms, poolside seating and wonderful underwater lighting to add that special something to an early evening swim. You can even play your own music to add to the experience. The pool is available each day and you are sure to find that you often have it just to yourselves. The shared gardens are beautifully maintained and fully enclosed so that dogs can be free and there are several different areas where you will find a bench to sit with a book or a coffee – in addition to your own private patio where you can sit and watch the antics of the chickens in their coop to one side of the gardens. Perhaps you can add your own breadcrumbs and crusts at feeding time! South Somerset has a wealth of unique landscapes, historic houses and villages, and of course the Dorset border is very close giving you the opportunity to explore that lovely county too. Crewkerne is the nearest little market town. It is getting quite a name for itself for the antiques and collectibles shops there and so is a great place to browse.
