The property

Martock 1.2 miles.

Settled in Somerset's countryside in Bower Hinton near Martock is this charming, mid-terrace cottage of Hamstone Cottage.

A marvellous retreat for a family of six, Hamstone Cottage rests near the border of Dorset and is close to three Areas of Outstanding Natural beauty: Cranborne Chase, Blackdown Hills and Dorset AONB.

When arriving at the property, park in the one of the unrestricted, on-street spaces before making your way inside the delightsome abode.

As you enter the property, you will be greeted by a wonderful snug which offers a chez lounge and a sofa for you to unwind on whilst you watch a show on the TV.

Progress into the open-plan living area, where two more sitting areas await, both of which features TVs and plush seating for you to make the most of.

The open-concept space also offers a well-equipped kitchen which not only enjoys views over the garden but features a great selection of appliances, from a handy coffee machine to an electric/gas cooker.

The chef of the group can enjoy rustling up tasty meals with the appliances at hand, before serving them up at the rustic dining table for all to enjoy.

Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom for your convenience along with a washing machine and tumble dryer readily available to help keep your holiday wardrobe fresh!

When the day comes to an end, climb the stairs to find three wonderful bedrooms, the first one being a super-king-size sleigh bed, a king-size and a double.

All the bedrooms enjoy access to a bathroom, where quirky mosaic tiling adorns the floors and the space itself offers a separate shower and bath.

During the sunny months, make your way out to the delightful, rear garden, where folding chairs offer a seat on the lush lawn, and alfresco dining can be enjoyed on the patio.

The pub of the Rose & Crown can be found close by for those evenings when you don't feel like cooking, or you can continue to Martock, with its selection of eateries and access to fantastic sights, including Montacute House, Ash Ponds and Ham Hill Country Park.

Travel a little further away to find Taunton, a town hosting the intriguing Museum of Somerset, the Vivary Golf Course & Adventure Centre and enjoys access to the outdoor wonders of West Deane Way and Trull Waterfall.

If a day out on the coast is more to your fancy, be sure to travel southward to Lyme Regis, where the fascinating museums of Lyme Regis and the Dinosarlaund Fossil Museum can be found, along with the stunning sands of the town's beach, the nearby sights of The Spittles and Fossil Beach.

For more coastal activities, venture to Watchet, Minehad, or Weston-Super-Mare; or if you'd prefer a day out in a historic market town, Bridgwater and Glastonbury also within easy reach.

A fantastic all year-round, choose Hamstone Cottage.

Yeovil 7.3 miles; Taunton 19.7 miles; Lyme Regis 23.6 miles.

Martock was historically known as a Somerset market town but is now a large village situated on the edge of the Somerset Levels. The village has a Post Office, a fire station, a petrol station, a number of pubs, shops and eateries, as well as a recreation ground and the National Trust property of Treasurer's House which is a 12th century medieval house. Other National Trust properties nearby are the 16th century Montacute House which is a country house with formal gardens, the 17th century Tintinhull Garden, and the Tudor mansion of Barrington Court with its walled orchards. Take a short drive into the town of Yeovil which has something for everyone; a bustling town centre, a golf course, wonderful gardens and parks, and the popular Yeovil Railway Centre which has full-scale locomotive cars, a mini-train ride, an art gallery and a gift shop. The surronding area is a haven for cyclists, walkers and wildlife lovers with the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Blackdown Hills AONB and Dorset AONB each within driving distance. If you're looking for some sea and sand, drive to Lyme Regis to take advantage of the pebbled beach, sandy beach and fossil beach, as well as an aquarium, a thriving marina and two interesting museums. This stunning area has plenty to offer from countryside to coast.
