About the Owner

The cottage has been in our family for nearly 40 years and, as children ourselves, we used to enjoy long summer holidays here. Now with our own children we love to return and have grown to know and love this very pretty part of Somerset.

From the Owner

Our young family particularly love the East Somerset Steam Railway and Nunney Castle, my husband loves the nearby golf and we all love the fantastic local walks, pretty market towns and going for a coffee and almond croissant at The Chapel Bakery in Bruton. The cottage itself is enjoyable too with its log burning stove, selection of board games and fantastic local pub a 5 minute walk away. Whilst being easily accessible the village itself feels a million miles away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life - perfect for a country cottage holiday.
