A charming semi-detached period cottage, dating back to 1790, tucked away in a peaceful location overlooking farmland on the edge of the little hamlet of Sutton, 3 miles from the attractive market town of Castle Cary. Furnished to a good standard, this quaint cottage retains original flagstone floors and some exposed stone walls in the sitting room, with a pleasant conservatory. The cottage has a lovely third of an acre garden with wildlife pond and deck offering distant views of the surrounding countryside, making this a perfect spot for relaxing after a day's sightseeing.

About the location
Castle Cary 3 miles; Glastonbury 10 miles.
The hamlet of Sutton is peacefully situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only 3 miles from Castle Cary, an attractive small market town with pretty winding high street dotted with thatched and golden hamstone cottages, and an interesting selection of antique shops, local stores, pubs and restaurants. The town is a centre for horsehair weaving, with a thriving flax mill still in production, and a guided tour provides a fascinating insight into this ancient tradition. The South Somerset countryside offers visitors the chance to explore wonderful landscapes of lush pastureland, and picturesque villages, whilst the more energetic can try the 28 mile Leland Trail, or South Somerset Cycle Trail. Within a short drive can be found the Haynes Motor Museum at Sparkford, Yeovilton Air Museum and the East Somerset Railway, as well as ancient Glastonbury and Sherborne, making this an enjoyable holiday destination for all, any time of the year.
