This delightful traditional stone cottage is a tranquil village bolthole near Glastonbury, just south of Somerset's stunning Mendip Hills, with their spectacular landscapes and dramatic natural gorges. This is simply a perfect hideaway to escape to.
2 Batch Cottages, in Bread Street, is a listed period cottage and was likely to have been one of the artisan baker's cottages when it was originally built 400 years ago. The cottage – with a wood-burning stove at its heart – is full of character and has been lovingly renovated.
Ideal for a couple wanting an escape for a short break or a week, there is a pub within walking distance and so much to do nearby whatever the time of year. The property welcomes your four-legged friend and has fully enclosed gardens to the front and back.
From the front door you step into the welcoming sitting-room, with its wood-burner, flagstone floors and deep velvety sofa. Beyond this are the newly installed kitchen/dining-room and bathroom, with a door to the very private patio and back garden. Steep turning cottage stairs, which are an original characteristic of a cottage this age, take you up to the double bedroom, with its comfortable king-size bed, exposed stone feature wall and views over the front garden.
