This peaceful detached cottage, on the edge of a beautiful south Somerset village, is the perfect base for exploring this historic county or for popping over the border into Dorset and heading for the Jurassic Coast. Scrumpy Cottage has been completely refurbished and offers an ideal balance between the warmth and character of a period property with a contemporary makeover. There are some low beams and lintels, but the cottage is filled with light. French windows open onto a very private, sheltered and enclosed courtyard garden, a south-facing sun-trap for lazy summer days. Inside, the comfortable furnishings and wood-burner make this cottage excellent for out-of-season escapes to the country – especially as the local pub is just around the corner!
