Greenhills Cottage is a beautiful stone cottage in an equally beautiful village - with a truly excellent pub -  near to the historic Somerset town of Bruton.
There are two beautiful sitting-rooms. Each has a wood-burning stove and original flagstone floor. This one leads on through to the kitchen/dining-room.
From the patio you have lovely rural views facing west, so gorgeous sunsets too.
This is the reception/sitting-room that you step into through the front door - what a great start to your holiday here.
The gorgeous open plan kitchen/dining-room has bi-fold doors to a very sheltered and private feeling garden at the back of the cottage.
Greenhills is the prettiest of stone cottages in a tiny row in this beautiful village. You can park directly outside the cottage.
This cottage is a true home-from-home with all that you could possibly need.
The kitchen/dining-room is stunning. The island is a great addition to this very contemporary and sociable space that has bi-fold doors to the garden.
Looking along the full length of this sunny open plan space.
The two reception rooms link one to the other. Both have wood-burning stoves and one has a TV so that you can have one room for watching films etc and one for chatting and being TV-free!
The front door opens into the first of the reception rooms where you can hang your coats.
The painted cottage stairs have a bannister and a fitted rope handrail, please take care.
This is the first of the double bedrooms, with lovely painted floorboards and views out to the front of the cottage and the fields.

This is the second of the double bedrooms - just as stylish and tranquil with peaceful neutral colours.
Another view of the second bedroom to show its size.
All the beds are beautifully presented with lovely linens and throws.
This is the pretty single bedroom with views out over the garden and the countryside beyond.

The family bathroom is on the first floor with the bedrooms but there is also a shower-room on the ground floor.
This is the ground floor shower-room - beyond the utility-room.
Greenhills is the end cottage in this little row of period stone cottages.  This is a very quiet village and the road is not a busy one.
The village church is at the heart of the hamlet.
... and the pub, The Three Horseshoes, is just up the lane.
If you bring children ( 5 yrs + ) there is a lovely playground in front of the church.
This is the beautiful setting for Greenhills. Batcombe is a tiny, historic hamlet surrounded by countryside and with an excellent pub just a stroll away. Greenhills is the last in the terrace.
Glorious Nunney Castle is a short drive away.
The Mendip Hills are just waiting to be explored.

The three of us had a lovely time in the cottage, nice little garden to sit out in and there are plenty of throws if you want to wrap up if its chilly. The beds are very comfortable. If your National Trust members Lytes Cary Manor and Tintinhull Gardens are not far away. A lovely place to stay.

If you want a beautiful, well equipped, comfortable cottage in a secluded location, this cottage is for you. Wells, Cheddar and Bath are all less than an hour away (40 mins, 30 mins, 50 mins). We loved this home from home.

Fantastic cottage, phone reception was a problem. Also, wifi isnt good enough for remote working.

Location, garden, space all perfect. Will return.

Greenhills is a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage. With lovely furniture and white washed walls which makes the cottage feel fresh and airy. The log burners made it very cosy in the evenings. It has the most wonderful kitchen with French windows opening out onto a colourful (dog proof) garden. The kitchen is so well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, useful island and a brilliant cooker.
A great winter retreat but I imagine fantastic in the summer as well as the views are lovely too. We all had a very relaxing week there.

Beautiful village and cottage. The furnishings were lovely. It was an ideal cottage for two generations of family and dogs. It was better equipped than my own home.

Please be aware there is no mobile phone signal at the cottage!

Thanks so much for reviewing Greenhills Cottage. Sadly mobile phone signal can sometimes be a little hit and miss in certain locations and with certain networks which is unfortunately beyond our control. We'd always recommend having a quick look at a mobile network map if this is an important feature to a holiday - there are some helpful links on our website on our Technology page.

A great mix of old and new.

Overall the property was very comfortable, the beds were wonderful and it was a lovely quiet environment. The kitchen was very well equipped with just about everything you could wish for. Also a lovely garden to enjoy. I think it would be helpful to inform people that there is no phone reception at the property and that accessing the television is quite complicated (at least it seemed so to us!}. The staircase is painted and quite slippery so anyone with mobility problems might struggle with it. It is a great area to visit and we very much enjoyed our stay.

It was a lovely, dog friendly cottage set in beautiful countryside. We loved the well equipped kitchen, the garden and visits to the local pub The Three Horseshoes.

A lovely cottage, full of character with a lovely sunny, well equipped kitchen which looks out onto a lovely garden. The local pub was very nice and we had great trips out to Wells, Frome and Glastonbury Tor.

Thanks so much for sharing your review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Did you climb up Glastonbury Tor? It's a bit of a hike but the views are breathtaking! Tanya, Customer Support

Greenhill's Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Absolutely immaculate we enjoyed the gorgeous interiors and stylish kitchen. The local pub is just around the corner, and serves delicious food along with a very warm welcome. We loved our stay and can't wait to return.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Greenhills Cottage - it's such a wonderful, cosy property whatever the time of year. And a pub on the doorstep…could it get any better? Bryony, Customer Support

Loved our stay in this beautiful cottage we didn't want to leave. Can't wait to return

I have rented this property before and hope to do so again.

The bed is small and a bit lumpy. The cottage looked like it had been empty for a few weeks since the last visit. A few basic maintenance chores would have improved things.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear that you didn't find the bed (a standard 4'6'' double) that comfy - we'll check the mattress out and see if it needs turning. We'll also ask the housekeeper to ensure any outstanding maintenance points are sorted - thanks so much for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

Well equipped and comfortable cottage. We would be happy to stay there again.

The cottage had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy with a very well equipped kitchen. My family and I plus our 2 little dogs enjoyed our stay.

Greenhills Cottage is a lovely cottage in a pretty Somerset village. The cottage is well equipped and the kitchen/dining room is a great area to spend time in. We really enjoyed our break at Greenhills Cottage.
