The property

The Barn at Rapps Cottage is a characterful cottage resting in an idyllic position in Somerset.

Surrounded by the splendour of both the Blackdown Hills and the Dorset Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this all-ground-floor abode is perfect for a pair seeking a rural escape, with plenty of walking and cycling routes being available right from your doorstep.

Park up outside this beautiful thatched barn conversion and marvel at its impressive exterior, with an idyllic pond resting beside it.

Step inside to find equal beauty at the cottage's interior, with original beams and a genuine thatched roof above you, it makes a wonderful choice for a traditional English countryside escape.

Make yourself at home within the open-plan living space as you unwind into your evening on the sofa settled before the Smart TV, before carrying your conversations over to the dining table where you can toast to your wonderful holiday.

The kitchen area is equipped with everything you could need when you're not out sampling the treats of the local area, with all of a combi microwave/oven, electric hob, fridge and freezer, it has all you need to prepare a romantic meal which can be enjoyed out on your own private patio.

Bring a book to the bedroom for a relaxing evening in, where you can snuggle up into the impressive zip/link super-king-size bed, or request for the bed to be made into two singles if you're travelling with a friend!

Enjoy a refreshing shower in the contemporary-styled shower room each morning, before exploring the beautiful grounds of the garden, giving you a glimpse of the Somerset splendour yet to come.

For all of your local amenities such as ingredients for your homemade meals or a refreshing pint in a pub, visit the nearby town of Ilminster, boasting a wide range of eateries and shops as well as rich history worth exploring through its art gallery and concert hall, once being a sixteenth-century grammar school, as well as a traditional Edwardian-style clothing and soft furnishings store named Dyers, or simply enjoy the wonderful displays at its theatre.

There are so many wonderful cycling opportunities within the area, the Chard to Ilminster route being particularly popular where you can first enjoy bird watching at Chard Reservoir before ending up at the wonderful town closest to your cottage.

Spend a day in Taunton where you will find plenty of shopping experiences alongside the Museum of Somerset where you can learn more about the local area, or soak in the wonder of the nearby AONB's, where you'll be sure to find the perfect picnic spot.
