The property

Langport 4 miles.

Hidden within the magnificent rural surroundings of Henley, you will find Old Cary Cottage.

Recently renovated to a beautiful standard, this attractive ground-floor cottage provides an idyllic escape to Somerset for a family or group of four.

Step inside the charming hallway and take off your coat and shoes, before heading through to the open-plan living space where you will discover a magnificent oak kitchen, kitted-out with a sleek electric range cooker and beautiful Belfast sink with decorative mosaic tiles.

Wander over to the dining space and take a seat at the table with friends, so that you can begin to map out your plans for the action-packed week that lies ahead.

Retire to the stylish sofa, or open up the patio doors leading out into the spacious enclosed garden as you bask in the sunshine on a warm summer's day.

Retreat to the airy bathroom decorated with both bright blue and yellow Moroccan style tiles and relax with a deep soak in the bathtub.

Choose between a double bedroom with stunning mahogany furnishings and the benefit of a well-thought en-suite cloakroom with basin and WC or a second spacious double with calming neutral tones and ample space to store all of your belongings.

Spend your days on scenic walks through the RSPB Ham Wall or Greylake where you can enjoy a spot of bird watching as you stroll along pretty lakes and appreciate the beauty of the English countryside.

Head to Glastonbury to see the ancient Chalice Well or wander the grounds of the imposing Glastonbury Abbey, before stopping off for a bite to eat at The Halfway House, famous for their hearty Sunday dinners.

Hop on your bike for a relaxing cycle along the banks of the River Brue.

For an unforgettable holiday with the family, book a stay at Old Cary Cottage.

    “A very nice, comfortable cottage.”

    Set in a lovely garden and nice views over the Somerset Levels. There is plenty to do in the local area. Glastonbury is not very far and there are a number of National Trust properties nearby. We would definitely return to this cottage.
