The property

Nestled in the quaint village of Hinton Charterhouse, Somerset, on the cusp of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Long Cottage.

This delightful, dog-friendly cottage benefits from a spectacular location with access to the breath-taking English countryside, parking, and a characterful interior adorned with exposed beams and original exposed stone and three well-appointed bedrooms; the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore all Somerset has to offer.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home where after a day full of exploration you can unwind on the plush sofa in front of the gentle warmth of the crackling woodburning stove.

Later, step into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can use the AGA, oven or hob at its heart to rustle up delicious meals for the whole family.

Dine together in the spacious dining room or head outside to delight in an alfresco affair upon the furniture on the patio; don't forget to raise a toast to your well-earned retreat!

When stars appear overhead, travel back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the bathroom or shower room ahead of sloping off to sleep in either of the double bedrooms or the twin bedroom.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, make the most of the stunning dog walks right outside your door.

The Village of Hinton Charterhouse has two pubs within walking distance of the property, The Stag Inn and The Rose & Crown, so why not enjoy a heart-warming meal out before stocking up on all of your self-catering essentials at the local post office?

Venture into the nearby village of Wellow where you can enjoy a break from the kitchen at the Fox and Badger offering delicious meals; the perfect place to cheers to your getaway.

History is also woven throughout the surrounding countryside; explore the neolithic tomb from 3500 BC, wander through Prior Park with its Palladian bridges, lakes and woodland, travel to the 15th century Great Chalfield Manor and Garden, marvel at the wonder of Stonehenge or tour the breath-taking Lackock Abbey which might look familiar to Harry Potter fans!

There is also the option of visiting the historic sites of Stoney Littleton Long Barrow and Farleigh Hungerford Castle, where you can find out more about the local history and heritage.

The thriving city of Bath is also within reach, and there are regular busses into the city, so spend a full day here visiting the Roman Baths, the Parade Gardens, Mary Shelley’s House of Frankenstein or time your visit right to experience a show at the Theatre Royal.

All this and more awaits at Long Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
