The property

Wrapped up in the spectacular green scenery of the Somerset countryside, in the quaint and rural village of Ditcheat, you will find Long Batch Cottage (which is joined to the owner’s property of Long Batch).

Within easy touring distance of both the Mendip Hills and Cranborne Chase Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this arresting single-storey dwelling is perfectly suited to couples seeking a tranquil retreat to the countryside.

Open up the cottage door and be welcomed into a light and airy open-plan living space, home to a well-equipped kitchen, intimate dining area and a warm and welcoming sitting area where you can enjoy many relaxing evenings indoors.

From here, a smart and contemporary bathroom awaits you, home to a spacious p-shaped bath and overhead shower allowing you to choose how to best prepare for your days.

Continue across the chic tiled floor to the restful king-size bedroom, beautifully appointed with a striking iron-framed bed and fresh white linens, together creating a peaceful spot to unwind at the end of your days.

Start your mornings with breakfast alfresco at the pretty bistro table that decorates the patio, sipping on a warm cup of tea as you discuss the day's adventure and admire your stunning surroundings.

Set in a central position, you can discover the very best that Somerset has to offer right from your doorstep.

Spend the day in the traditional market town of Shepton Mallet and see the 17th century jail of Shepton Mallet Prison, now operating captivating ghost tours and fun escape rooms, or venture across to Glastonbury where the remains of Glastonbury abbey and the ancient Chalice Well await you.

Climb to Glastonbury Tor and admire views across the countryside, or wander the old 15th-century town house of Glastonbury Tribunal, now a popular museum!

Explore the Wookey Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge, or see Gorsey Bigbury Henge and the opulent palace of The Bishop's Palace & Gardens, providing fun for the whole family.

See the wild animals that roam the Elizabethan Manor of Longleat, or wander the main square and uncover the adventure castle and jungle cruise.

Head to Yeovil to visit the National Trust owned Montacute House and Yeovil Country Park, or venture to the National Trust’s flagship Stourhead to enjoy the lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare exotic trees.

On return to the cottage, be sure to stop off in the heart of Ditcheat village for dinner and drinks at the local pub, or pick up fresh ingredients from the well-stocked village shop or in the Farm Shop set in the neighbouring village of Pylle ahead of a romantic home-cooked meal for two.

Make the most of quality time with your significant other on a getaway to Long Batch Cottage.

About the location

DITCHEAT

Shepton Mallet 5.8 miles; Glastonbury 11 miles

Set at the foot of the Mendip Hills AONB, this thriving Somerset village is nestled some five miles south of Shepton Mallet. Boasting a pub and a local shop, Ditcheat is also home to Barber’s cheese dairy and Paul Nicholls’ racing stables. Racehorses are frequently seen passing the cottage on their way to the gallops. Ditcheat village is also within easy reach of Worthy Farm, the Glastonbury Festival site, and the Royal Bath and West Showground, hosting one of Britain's major agricultural shows every year, along with many other events. Shepton Mallet offers a wonderful blend of old and new architecture, as well as a weekly market, a variety of shops, pubs and eateries. Nearby is Wells with its beautiful cathedral; Glastonbury, famous for its festivals; and the charming spa town of Bath, along with many family attractions including Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves and East Somerset Railway. Castle Cary is just south of Ditcheat, lying on the fringes of luscious, green countryside between the Somerset Levels to the West and the ridgeline of Penselwood to the east. It is worth a visit to see its old town centre with buildings such as the Market House, the Round House and the old George Inn, which runs along the foot of steep, grassy Lodge Hill, below where the castle used to stand. Castle Cary hosts a weekly market on Tuesday mornings, ideal for picking up gifts for loved ones, as well as crafts, fresh produce and artisan bread.
