This delightful newly renovated Grade II Listed stone cottage is in the heart of the village of Pilton, with Glastonbury, Wells, Bath and the Mendip Hills within easy reach. 2 Batch Cottages is in a very pretty little terrace of cottages, set back from one of the quiet roads that thread through the village, with enclosed front and rear gardens. You step into the cosy sitting-room with its wood-burner and beyond it is the fitted kitchen with door to the very private patio and back garden and bathroom. Steep turning cottage stairs, which are original characteristics of cottages of this age, take you up into the double bedroom with its king-size bed and views over the front garden. Babes in arms up to the age of six months old are welcome at 2 Batch Cottages.
2 Batch Cottages – in Bread Street – was likely to have been one of the artisan baker’s cottages when it was originally built 400 years ago. It has been lovingly refurbished but retains some lovely original features so do expect some low lintels, sloping ceilings upstairs and those steep stairs. The cottage is cosy and welcoming, a real bolthole for a couple wanting an escape for a short break or a week, with a pub within walking distance and so much to do nearby: Bath and Wells for some culture – the Hauser & Wirth Gallery at Bruton for a very different cultural experience! – Glastonbury for some vibrant colour and quirky character, Frome for the monthly weekend artisan food market or even closer the fabulous farm shop just a few miles away at Pylle for local produce to bring back to the cottage, and of course the stunning walks in the Mendip Hills above Cheddar for panoramic views across the Somerset Levels.

2 Batch Cottages is the most beautiful little stone cottage, full of warmth and character - the perfect bolt-hole for two.
With original flagstone floors and a wood burning stove, the living room is such a welcoming room. There is a comfy sofa just out of this shot.
Somerset is a beautiful and varied county, this image is taken from high up on the Mendip Hills and looks right out across the Somerset Levels.
The kitchen and bathroom are through the doorway to the right - photos will follow as soon as these rooms have been renovated - they promise to be as lovely as the rest of the cottage !
Out of season breaks are ideal here. An easy to reach and tranquil location.
The king sized bed in the bedroom, with its characterful sloping ceilings - do take care if you are tall - and little window looking down to the garden.
The room has plenty of space and is beautifully presented so that it feels calm and peaceful.
Sitting outside in the front garden, taking in gentle village life, is a real treat. There is a lovely fully enclosed rear garden too - again, photos will follow soon.
Climbing to the top of Glastonbury Tor is a great challenge but so well worth it for the stunning views from the top.
Wells Cathedral City is a short drive away. The cathedral, the Bishops Palace and the weekly artisan market make this a great place to visit.
Axbridge is a lovely medieval town to the western edge of the Mendip Hills.
The Roman city of Bath is not far - another exellent day out to enjoy.
On the way to Bath you will pass the Burrington Reservoir.
