    The location was great , cottage comfortable, but a bit dated could do with a makeover, had a good stay overall which was spoiled by the boiler breaking down, so had no heating, or hot water had to buy logs for the fire at a cost to ourselves of £70 , owner came and put immersion heater on so then at least then had hot water tried to blame us which was very unprofessional, was finally fixed after 5 days boiler is antiquated , would have really enjoyed it without this problem

  • "Very noisy boiler and one minute the radiators upstairs were pumping out excessive heat and then stopped altogether so it became quite chilly - not helped by the windows being single glazed."

    Proper shower over the bath with a screen would have been good too. Also warning before arrival on the hazards in the drive re wall and metal post sticking up which of course I drove into and have seriously damaged my car door/wing. In the dark with car queuing up behind it was impossible to see this! Some helpful tips on good pubs & places to eat and visit - perhaps some walk guides too. Welcome pack a bit insignificant as we don't drink cider - perhaps a bottle of wine instead!

  • "Big range cooker, didn't work kept tripping the electric."

    We had bought food to cook in oven. Owner did attend couldn't fix it, didn't seem to be on a proper electrical cooker box. He did cook one meal for one guest and then brought us a tiny air fryer. We were there for a wedding we spent the whole morning prior to the wedding cooking breakfast pastries 1 or 2 at a time it took over 2 hours. I've complained to Sykes and they've said they will call me today but so far they have not. This cottage is tired, it could be nice with a little tlc but as well aa the cooker the shower was mouldy and there was only one bedside table so I had to put my drink on the floor and also risk the safety of my glasses on which I am reliant by also putting them on the floor. Also no real fire notice saying chimney was blocked with sticks from jackdaws. Shame really because we are looking for a place to stay regularly as we have family in the area. I wouldn't go there again and if Sykes don't call as promised I won't use them again either

  • "Had a good week, apart from too much rain!"

    Cottage was large and roomy, with good broadband speed. Heating was sadly needed due to the weather, but the heating worked well, although the boiler was a bit noisy & occasionally banged unexpectedly. Good location for the town and for walks.

  • "The parking space was too small for two cars."

    The ensuite shower room was ridiculously tiny and the shower tray did not drain. Almost flooded the floor on several occasions. The tiles in the shower cubicle have a lot of black mould. The hot water supply automatically heats the two bedrooms and makes it unbearably hot. A chest of drawers and a mirror should be provided in the double room, a bookcase is unnecessary, but clothes storage is essential. One of the kitchen cupboards smelt very mouldy and this affected the pans and utensils in it.

    Field cottage is a beautiful cosy well equipped cottage, we loved our stay Situated in quiet lane a short walk from Shepton Mallet with lots of places of interest just a short drive away

  • "Field cottage is in a lovely spot, ideal for dog walking & lots of amenities within walking distance."

    The cottage was very clean & beautiful but it does have a few problems. The double bed room has nowhere to store anything or even a mirror to dry your hair. The ensuite is tiny with a very noisy shower. If a tap is run while the shower is on it sounds like its about to blow up. The door opening inwards doesn't help. As for the kitchen door lock, everyone in our party struggled to open & lock with the key. We took to locking it from the outside as it was too difficult to lock from the inside. The front door lock is better but both in need of changing for safety reasons.

    First the steep staircase should be made known. Lack of Storage space in the small bedroom. Lovely surroundings. Very quiet. Lovely walks

  • "A beautiful cottage with charm and character."

    Ideal location for us to visit friends in Clarkes Meadow just 3mins drive away. Convenient fields right next to cottage for our dog to enjoy. Wifi was a bonus as was the smart tv. Overall highly recommended.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, perfect for us ( a couple and a dog)."

    Location is great for exploring the area and the nearby pub was excellent. The only negative is that the double bedroom and bed is very small and doesn't have storage so may not suit two couples.

    Thanks for your feedback. There is a large walk in cupboard with hanging space on the upstairs landing for use by the occupants of the double bedroom and the the twin room has a large wardrobe. Property Owner

The property

This Grade II, semi-detached, stone cottage believed to have been constructed in 1850 rests down a quiet lane on the edge of the historic town of Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

Formerly used for housing brewery workers, this period property was historically two cottages in a terrace of four and provides a characterful stay for four guests and their pooch.

Upon arrival, leave the car in one of the off-road parking spaces and head through the front door into your new-home-from-home.

Make yourself at home in the sitting room, getting comfortable on the settee and armchairs beside the open fire which stands in a beautiful original fireplace, with a Smart TV to provide entertainment.

Head over to the kitchen where you’ll find a range of appliances to assist with home-cooking, including a gas range style cooker with an electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher so you won’t have to lift a finger when cleaning up!

Serve the fruits of your labour at either the dining table in the living room, or at the kitchen table for a homely feel, toasting to a long-awaited break with your nearest and dearest.

The bedrooms are situated upstairs and include a double and a twin, both benefitting from en-suite facilities including a shower room and bathroom.

Step outside and take a seat at the bistro table and chairs.

Then perhaps take your canine companion for a well-deserved romp in the field to the rear of the property and enjoy the sounds of the trickling brook and birdsong on your way.

Nestled just outside of Shepton Mallet’s historic town centre, Field Cottage is perfectly positioned for a rural escape with countryside views, whilst a gentle stroll will bring you to a range of amenities and attractions; seek out some good food in one of the many superb eateries around, take in the eclectic mix of new and old architecture as you pass, or head into town to pick up some produce for a romantic meal back at the cottage, with a number of convenience stores and takeaways to choose from too!

When you are ready to explore, venture to the town of Glastonbury, famous for its music festival and medieval sites, or even closer to the beautiful Cathedral city of Wells, whilst those looking to get their steps in can access the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to a myriad of walking and cycling routes.

Choose Field Cottage and experience the best of this Somerset location.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
