Greenhills is, quite simply, a beautiful period cottage in a beautiful unspoilt Somerset village, renovated with vision and style to create the most fabulous and welcoming retreat.
Close to the historic town of Bruton – home to the renowned international Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery, the Cathedral City of Wells, iconic Glastonbury and set in the gentle rural landscape below the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this tranquil place is a perfect choice.
With two sitting-rooms to choose from, each with a wood-burning stove, a bright kitchen/dining-room with bi-fold doors to the sheltered fully enclosed garden, and three lovely bedrooms upstairs, the cottage is deceptively spacious and contemporary whilst keeping a true sense of its character.
The child age restriction is out of care for very young children on the stairs. Babes in arms, up to 6 months, are welcome.
The village of Batcombe is off the beaten track in the perfect sense – easy to get to and yet truly peaceful. At the heart of the village there is a fantastic pub within easy walking distance, The Three Horseshoes, and all are made welcome – the food is much praised!
Greenhills is the end property in a very small terrace of stone cottages overlooking village meadows to the front and with sunset views down across the valley from the pretty garden.
Original beams and flagstone floors have been lovingly integrated with a recent makeover that has created a gorgeous contemporary bolthole where you cannot help but relax.
The cottage offers really flexible accommodation with two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom upstairs, and the bonus of a walk-in shower on the ground floor. One of the two sitting-rooms has a TV and a games console, the other is reserved for chilling out and catching up with each other.
A special and very local treat is a visit to Westcombe Dairy in the very next village – within walking distance. This artisan cheesemaker, with a cheddar ageing cave on site, has a little farm shop where you can taste and buy some of the special cheeses. Also on sale are unique beers from the Wild Beer Company which is also based in the village.
