About the property

Langport 2.5 miles. Situated in the peaceful village of Aller, just a few miles from the ancient market town of Langport, is the dazzling, detached cottage, Tin Bath. Tin Bath is the perfect place to spend some quality time together as a wonderful all-year-round retreat, for a rejuvenating getaway or a romantic break for couples looking to explore this vibrant and interesting part of Somerset.

The property has a large shared gravel driveway, with its own dedicated secure parking space and an electric car charging point..

You are welcomed to the property by the rustic charm of a solid oak porch and from there into the beautifully proportioned and elegant open plan accommodation.

Once you step inside this exquisite and tactile property, you can cuddle up on the sofa and watch a movie, or cook a romantic meal for your loved one to indulge in at the dining table.

As the sun sets, you may choose to retire to your glorious king-size bed, or step through the oak panelled door into your own private courtyard where you can enjoy the warmth of a lovely wood burning stove/ barbecue.

This tranquil courtyard is the ideal place to rustle-up a good meal and enjoy some alfresco dining plus, with its comfortable furniture; it's also perfect for that first cup of coffee as you enjoy the fresh morning air.

The Bath: The elegantly spacious bathroom features a truly magnificent and delightfully unique freestanding tin bath that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Inspired by the iconic design heritage of 19th Century France, this romantic and quintessential bath was created and hand finished by highly skilled British Master craftsmen.

With flowing lines and organic symmetry, this extraordinary bathtub combines comfort and style in one perfectly formed bath, resulting in a fully-functional work of art.

Staying at Tin Bath will be a truly memorable experience for people wanting to escape, totally relax and fill their lungs with fresh Somerset air.

It's perfect for anniversaries, Valentine's Day treats and special birthday and Christmas celebrations.

The muted earthy design is chic and modern, yet utterly timeless and guaranteed to both inspire you and lift your very soul.

Many facilities are literally on your doorstep; just a stone’s throw away from the property you can savour a meal or enjoy drinks at The Old Pound Inn.

The nearby ancient market town of Langport has the delightful River Parrett running through it, and has many independent shops where you can grab any self-catering essentials; such as The Little Bakery with breads and cakes baked daily, The Art Tea Zen café for more homemade delicacies and the step-back-in-time Langport Stores for general supplies.

The Somerset Levels covers 160,000 acres and is one of England’s most unchanged landscapes (and where King Alfred burned the cakes!), due to being home to three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; Blackdown Hills, the Quantocks and the Mendips.

The ancient beauty and diverse wildlife of the area (you'll make plenty of four-legged and feathered friends) inspires many artists and photographers, whilst the surrounding countryside has many pretty villages, footpaths and cycle trails. If you're a water-lover, you can enjoy the indoor swimming pool or hire paddleboards, kayaks and canoes to take a trip up the River Parrett, whilst those who prefer dry land, can try the Parrett Trail Bikes and head out along the River Parrett Trail.

The area is also one of the country’s top spots for bird watching so make a trip to RSPB Ham Wall, whilst animal lovers can enjoy a visit to Stoodley Alpaca Farm.

Also in the area, you can take a heritage railway trip on the longest standard gauge line in the country, wander around the National Trust property of Montacute House which dates back to the Elizabethan period, visit the town of Glastonbury which has a stunning abbey, or enjoy a beach day on the Jurassic Coast and the seaside town of Lyme Regis.

For perfect rambling adventures, cycling routes, wildlife spotting or to simply enjoy the fresh country air, choose Tin Bath as your unique self-catering cottage, located in the very heart of Somerset.
