The property

Crooked Well is a historic, semi-detached stone cottage resting in the popular village of Timsbury, conveniently situated for access to Bath and Bristol.

A charming two-bedroomed cottage in the very heart of the village, yet peaceful in a so-called ‘select’ cul-de-sac with its own parking area for two cars, it makes a wonderful choice for a couples' escape or a family retreat to the countryside.

Originally built in the 1840s, the property now offers a homely base from which to spend quality time with your loved ones; enter into the dining room, conveniently situated so you can sit down and enjoy a warming cup of coffee after a day of exploring, before moving into the sitting room to retire for the evening.

Flick on the freestanding, electric fire, which can be moved if an open fire is desired, and turn on the Smart TV for an evening of lighthearted entertainment; this room also boasts a sofa bed, perfect for those with limited mobility who don't want to tackle the stairs, with a convenient cloakroom being on this floor too.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all the essentials to prepare a family-favourite meal, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, a washing machine and access to a tumble dryer in the shed, you can find all you need and more for a relaxing self-catered stay.

Find even more flexible sleeping options up on the first floor, where you will be met by a master super-king-size with its own TV, which may be unzipped to form two single beds, with the option for another single bed to be added for a child too.

The twin bedroom is home to two store-a-beds offering two singles, or a king-size and a single on request, giving each guest a lovely spot to rest each evening.

Begin your day with a relaxing soak in the bath, with the option of a handheld shower and a separate walk-in shower too, before spending some time out in the rear garden, home to a patio area with wooden table and chairs with a parasol for those scorching hot sunny days, as well as firepit barbecue tripod for alfresco dining.

Timsbury has all of the self-catering essentials, including a Co Op, pharmacy and a delightful local shop all within walking distance, as well as a hair and a beauty salon.

In the village square you will find the excellent Connie's tearoom and café, next to Our Plaice well-recommended for its fish and chips and varied take away menu, or take a walk in the opposite direction to the excellent pub/restaurant, ‘The Seven Stars’, the last of about 12 inns once in the village.

There are plenty of small villages and towns to explore; Midsomer Norton of Midsomer Murders fame, with its excellent Sports and Leisure centre with swimming pool, as well as Keynsham and the beautiful little city of Wells.

Visit the Chew Valley sailing lake, reservoir and bird reserve, also boasting easy access to both Cheddar and Glastonbury, while Street and the famous Clarks’ Outlet Village is within driving distance too.

The seaside can be reached at Weston-Super-Mare, Brean and Burnham-on- Sea, while Bath is renowned for its Roman attractions and Georgian architecture; the only World Heritage city in the UK, with many well-known attractions within easy reach.

Choose Crooked Well for an unforgettable stay in Somerset with your loved ones.
