Pippins is a picture postcard country cottage nestled in the charming Somerset village of North Perrott - not far from the Dorset border. This cosy home can cater for all of the family (including your four-legged friends). It is an ideal spot to explore the nearby National Trust houses at Montacute and Barrington Court or for a day at the beach; Lyme Regis and West Bay are within striking distance.

Stepping into this Grade II listed, terraced cottage you will instantly feel ready for your holiday. There is a wonderful cosy feel and the plentiful original features make the cottage totally charming. The hall leads to the formal dining-room, where you can catch up over some dinner after a busy day's exploring and maybe enjoy a board game or two! You also step from the hall into the sitting-room with beautiful original fireplace - a lovely spot to sit with a cup of tea and read a book. The kitchen leads off this room and has all the 'mod-cons' you need, including a fabulous electric range style cooker.

The garden is west-facing and catches the afternoon and evening sun, so sit out and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining. Being all enclosed, the garden lends itself well to children and dogs (please be aware that there is a right of way across the garden for neighbouring cottages, with a gate on each side of the garden but this is used very infrequently).

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and they share the modern, family bathroom. The main bedroom is a great size and has a gorgeous exposed hamstone chimney breast. Feature wallpaper and more exposed features in the second bedroom make this a peaceful space to switch off and relax, (take care when heading into the second bedroom, as there is a low lintel). Next to the bathroom is the third bedroom, which is a good-sized single with pretty views over the garden. Whether you are a couple, friends or family with children, the bedroom set-up offers excellent flexibility.

From the cottage you can explore this quaint village on foot - the village cricket ground is not far away and you can enjoy a drink whilst watching a match. The immediate local area is fantastic for dog walks and there are plenty of traditional pubs when you are in need of a pitstop. For those seeking a faster pace of entertainment, the River Parrett Trail runs through the village and stretches for 50 miles through the countryside.

Bridport is a short drive away and offers a wealth of interest for artist an antique lovers. Nearby Crewkerne is another fantastic trove of antique treasures. A holiday in this part of south Somerset is not complete without a day out at the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. Whether you are in to fossil hunting, swimming or just taking in the magnificent vistas, you are sure to create lifetime holiday memories.

There are a number of historical places to visit, including Montacute House, Lytes Cary, Forde Abbey and Tintinhull Gardens (to name a few!). Within easy distance is the Roman city of Bath, medieval city of Wells and the quirky town of Glastonbury with its famous Tor. Pippins is the perfect home-from-home to use as your base to explore this glorious part of the country.
