    “The cottage or old bell tower was ...”

    The cottage or old bell tower was exceptional in many ways; the bed, shower, kitchen, couch, table & chairs - all of these were top class and comfortable. The hosts were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about the area with a helpful visitors book and leaflets of interest. The outside facilities were beautiful, especially the Alpacas that were restful on the eyes and very quiet! The best holiday cottage we have stayed in for years!

The property

Shepton Mallet 3 miles.

The Old Bell Tower was once used by the owners to practice bell ringing.

It has since been converted into a charming holiday cottage, ideal for a couple wanting a relaxing getaway in the Somerset countryside.

Inside the wooden-clad property you will find a beautifully decorated open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting spaces, all of which furnished and fitted to the highest standard, with hand made, solid oak wood throughout.

Cook a delicious meal in the fully appointed kitchen, complete with Belfast sink, handmade granite work tops and oak cupboards, then take a seat at the dining table overlooking the rolling Mendip Hills.

This cosy yet bright room is the perfect place to return to after a day spent exploring the surrounding countryside.

Downstairs you will also find a modern family bathroom with large shower, and up the staircase an impressive king size bed with views over the owner's lake.

Outside is an enclosed garden featuring a mix of gravel and paving, with a love knot design at its centre.

One side of the furnished garden is a wooden fence that is shared with the field housing the farm's Alpacas.

The pleasingly designed garden is an extension of the high-quality finishing presented inside the property, offering a serene space to relax in the afternoon sun with a glass of wine.

Take in the views across the carp lake, which is also home to several varieties of waterfowl.
