Vine Cottage Retreat is just that. A calm and tranquil place to switch off from your busy life, in the most beautiful village setting.
There is a very sheltered outside seating area, a little courtyard style garden,  with this stunning wisteria to enjoy.
The open plan living area has a kitchen tucked at one end and plenty of space for a dining table and for the comfortable sofa and armchair too.
The bedroom has a wonderful superking sized bed. A perfect night's sleep is guaranteed.
This is the front door for this south-facing cottage. The patio is a delightful sun-trap with pretty planting to make it really attractive.
This calm and peaceful place is perfect for switching off and taking things slowly.
There are friendly details to make you feel at home.
Enjoy having time to yourselves. The kitchen is very well-equipped if you don't want to eat at the fantastic Lord Poulett Arms in the village.
A good mix of antique and new make this cottage's interior feel warm and welcoming.
The cottage opens out onto its own enclosed and sheltered patio beneath a wonderful wisteria.
The bedroom is light and airy but cosy at the same time.
There is plenty of storage for you.
Lie-ins are the order of the day - and then perhaps breakfast at Dorothy's Tea Shop a short stroll away.
Luxurious White Company bed linens are the icing on the cake.
The shower-room is a really generous size, a contemporary style and so very bright and sparkling.
Another view of the shower-room to give you a good impression of its size.
Hinton St George has a fantasic Tea Room - open all year round from 10am in the morning for a range of delicous snacks. Just a two minute stroll from the Retreat.
The entrance from Abbey Street - the cottage is to the right and your dedicated off-road private parking is to the left. There is plenty of turning space.
The Jurassic Coast is a short drive from Hinton St George - usually about 40 minutes.  This is Lyme Regis right on the Dorset/ East Devon border
This is West Bay at Bridport.  There is a lovely drive here via Crewkerne and Beaminster - stop in both for a wander before getting to the beach.
South Somerset has a number of historic houses to visit.  This is Montacute near Yeovil.  Barrington House is close, as well as Lytes Carey Manor
All the National Trust houses have wonderful gardens and walks too.
Tintinhull House has this beautiful garden to stroll in.
The Somerset Levels are home to several RSPB bird sanctuaries - really well worth a visit to see the amazing range of birds.

Vine Retreat is in a picture postcard village setting and was a beautiful cottage for us to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We really appreciated the owners welcome on arrival too. We so enjoyed our visit to the local teashop called Dorothy's which is walking distance from the cottage. Thank you we would love the chance to visit again in the future. We have stayed in a number of Classic Cottages properties and this is a lovely example. Mr and Mrs Baker, Torquay, Devon.
