This amazing hexagonal thatched cottage is set beside woods within a country estate three miles from Ilminster, about 300 yards along a farm track, 100 yards from the farm buildings and about 300 yards from the busy A358 to Taunton.
Dating from around 1800, it is Grade II listed and makes a fairytale base for families or friends to enjoy Somerset.
The old style front door leads into a little hall, off which are two sitting rooms with gothic windows with pine shutters, and one with open fire.
A step leads you down to a kitchen with dining area.
The wonderful character and storybook style continues as you head up the steep curving stairs to the three bedrooms and bathroom.
Surrounded by the woods and fields, the private lawn is a great place to sit in the sun and maybe enjoy a barbecue.
Beyond that, you are welcome to wander the 500 acres of parkland and fields, by arrangement.
As well as the great walks and freedom around the cottage, you have shops and restaurants to enjoy in the market town of Ilminster, as well as National Trust Barrington Court and Montacute, where you can marvel at the splendid gardens and grandeur.
Yeovilton air base is a fascinating place to visit and the Dorset Jurassic Coast is a wonderful place to wander the beaches and hunt for fossils.
With easy access to the M5 and the A303, The Gingerbread House is a brilliant place for enjoying Somerset and Dorset.
