This delightful newly renovated Grade II Listed stone cottage is in the heart of the village of Pilton, with Glastonbury, Wells, Bath and the Mendip Hills within easy reach. 2 Batch Cottages is in a very pretty little terrace of cottages, set back from one of the quiet roads that thread through the village, with enclosed front and rear gardens. You step into the cosy sitting-room with its wood-burner and beyond it is the fitted kitchen with door to the very private patio and back garden and bathroom. Steep turning cottage stairs, which are original characteristics of cottages of this age, take you up into the double bedroom with its king-size bed and views over the front garden. Babes in arms up to the age of six months old are welcome at 2 Batch Cottages.
2 Batch Cottages – in Bread Street – was likely to have been one of the artisan baker’s cottages when it was originally built 400 years ago. It has been lovingly refurbished but retains some lovely original features so do expect some low lintels, sloping ceilings upstairs and those steep stairs. The cottage is cosy and welcoming, a real bolthole for a couple wanting an escape for a short break or a week, with a pub within walking distance and so much to do nearby: Bath and Wells for some culture – the Hauser & Wirth Gallery at Bruton for a very different cultural experience! – Glastonbury for some vibrant colour and quirky character, Frome for the monthly weekend artisan food market or even closer the fabulous farm shop just a few miles away at Pylle for local produce to bring back to the cottage, and of course the stunning walks in the Mendip Hills above Cheddar for panoramic views across the Somerset Levels.
Sitting-room with TV, DVD player and wood-burner.
Kitchen/Dining-room with electric hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine.
Bathroom with bath, fitted shower, WC and wash-basin.
Bedroom with double bed (5').
This is a very old cottage so there are some low beams and very steep turning stairs. *A cot is not provided, bring your own travel cot.
