  • "We enjoyed our little holiday in this delightful cottage."

    In view of the Covid restrictions the cleanliness was exceptional. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The only suggestions that we think would enhance the kitchen - a freezer compartment in the fridge and maybe a small microwave. Both of these items would be useful when you are self catering.

  • "Spacious property in a good location, convenient for quick access to main road transportation links to many local tourist locations."

    For walkers, a small lane to rear provides a pleasant walk to nearby Shepton Mallet centre. Kitchen equipped with good quality items and cooking facilities. Very comfortably furnished and bright throughout. For something different go on a guided tour of historic Shepton Mallet Prison. Wells, Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury and many National Trust properties nearby.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the bustling town of Shepton Mallet and just a short distance away from the stunning landscape of the Mendip Hills, discover Compton Cottage, a quaint annexe situated next to the owner’s home.

The cottage is perfectly positioned for exploring the wonder of Somerset with your family or using as a base to attend Bath and West Showground or Glastonbury Music Festival.

Relax after an action-packed afternoon within the spacious sitting room, where the exposed beams complement the plush sofa and Smart TV for your evening’s entertainment.

Joining the space is the formal dining table, where you and your loved ones can gather to play some board games brought from home, pop open a bottle of fizz or tuck into a home-cooked dish that was prepared within the amply equipped kitchen.

Indulge in a relaxing soak within the family bathroom before you retire for the evening in one of the two bedrooms, both designed with a touch of opulence and a refreshing colour palette to ensure tranquillity as you wake up each morning.

Choose between a plush double bedroom and a twin bedroom, boasting lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming rural spot, head into Shepton Mallet, where you will find a plethora of places to eat and drink, as well as an outlet village for picking up designer items at a discounted price.

Meander around the town before visiting Britain’s oldest prison, now a Grade-II listed site that has reopened as a unique family attraction.

To celebrate the agricultural spirit of Somerset, be sure to pay a visit to the Royal Bath and West Show, a 240-acre showground site littered with exciting exhibits, stalls, stores and shows that highlight the best of British agriculture, entertainment, food and drink.

Alternatively, use Compton Cottage as a base for exploring the pretty town of Frome with its thriving contemporary and performing arts scene or spend some time in the cathedral city of Wells, boasting further amenities and wonderful attractions.

Families of all ages will also be delighted by the close proximity to the safari park of Longleat or step back in time on a journey along the East Somerset Railway on a steam train.

Other attractions worth visiting within the area include Pennard House, Shambles Carnival Club and the fascinating Wookey Hole Caves.

With so much to see and do, a stay at Compton Cottage promises to be fun-filled.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
