This tranquil bolthole is in a peaceful setting in one of south Somerset’s most beautiful and unspoilt villages – Hinton St George – near the historic market town of Ilminster and an easy drive to the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis and Bridport. This is a perfect place for couples (babes in arms up to six months welcome) to escape the pressures of daily life – plenty of space, privacy and a delightful enclosed patio with wisteria climbing up the wall. An award-winning gastro pub, the Lord Poulett Arms, excellent village shop and a tea-room are all within a five minute walk. Vine Cottage Retreat has a large bedroom with a luxurious super-king sized bed, lovely shower-room and an open plan living, dining and kitchen-area.
South Somerset is a great base as it is so easy to reach, the countryside is gentle with a real range of landscapes from the Somerset Levels – home to some amazing RSPB wildlife reserves – to the Mendip and Quantock Hills and a little further afield the wilds of Exmoor National Park. Bordering Dorset and east Devon you can easily explore the stunning stretch of the Jurassic Coast and the South West Coast Path. There are a number of local historic National Trust properties to visit – Montacute House, Barrington Court and Lytes Carey are the nearest, all with amazing manor houses and beautiful gardens to explore. On your doorstep the village is filled with beautiful golden hamstone cottages and houses. The village gastro pub, the Lord Poulett Arms, is recognised as one of the best places to eat in the area – do book in advance! The village shop is a thriving focal point for the community and offers an excellent range of fresh local produce. As if this isn’t enough – you can stroll to the tea shop within two minutes, which opens at 10am providing cakes, sandwiches and snack meals, as well as cream teas.
