The property

Two Towers Cottage at 23 The Borough in Montacute is a charming Grade II listed home nestled in a prime position in Montacute, Somerset.

Just opposite the National Trust site of Montacute House and with a range of amenities, this characterful property is the perfect place for couples and groups to call home while exploring the delights of the county.

Park up in the public car park, and make your way to your new abode, brimming with character and original features.

Step indoors and make yourself at home in the kitchen/diner, the perfect space to rustle up a tasty dinner for all, before gathering in the dining room for a formal affair.

When you’ve finished, settle down in the sitting room on cooler evenings, or if the weather allows, gather in the rear garden with its outstanding view of St Michael’s Hill.

When it's time to retire, ascend the stairs to discover two thoughtfully appointed bedrooms—a cozy double and an inviting twin.

Freshen up in the bathroom, complete with a bath and walk-in shower, whilst an additional cloakroom offers convenience downstairs.

Just a stone's throw away lies the entrance to the renowned Montacute House, where you can explore the intricacies of the building and its delightful gardens.

Conclude your visit to the House with a relaxing coffee break at the Courtyard Café.

The village itself boasts essential amenities, including a Post Office and a petrol station.

For a delightful evening experience, revel in refreshing drinks and delectable meals in the heart of the village at the Phelips Arms and the Kings Arms.

There are rewarding country walks for all abilities on your doorstep, and plenty of attractions just a short drive away.

For a pilgrimage to a spiritual site, venture to Glastonbury, renowned for its mysterious landscape and the iconic Glastonbury Tor, along with Glastonbury Abbey and the Somerset Rural Life Museum, both recommended to add to your itinerary.

There are lovely walks around the village, through Montacute Park and Ladies Walk, and up to the folly on St Michael's Hill with its wonderful views across the Somerset Levels.

A slightly longer walk will take you to the neolithic hillfort of Ham Hill, a Scheduled Ancient Monument and site of special scientific Interest.

The Prince of Wales pub on top of Ham Hill gives an excellent vantage point where you can rest and eat, and maybe even try the local cider.

Take a walk past the stone circle and out to the monument to enjoy far-reaching panoramic views. A stay at Two Towers Cottage promises the best of Somerset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

The historic, medieval Somerset village of Montacute is nearby Yeovil and most well known for the National Trust's impressive Montacute House, a stunning Elizabethan mansion built for Sir Edward Phelips, the prosecutor of Guy Fawkes. The house is set in beautiful gardens and has been widely used as a film set, notably in 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Wolf Hall'. The village centre and conservation area features an array of picturesque hamstone cottages, two thriving pubs and a Post Office. Locally, there are lovely walks to be had to the nearby Ham Hill and St Michael's Hill with it's folly and it's wonderful views across the Somerset Levels and beyond. Alternatively, enjoy a day out at Yeovilton's Fleet Air Arm Museum, or Haynes Motor Museum, explore mystical Glastonbury, or the UK's smallest city, Wells, with its majestic cathedral. With medieval Sherborne and the scenic Dorset coastline both within an hours drive away, you will find that a week is not nearly long enough to enjoy everything on offer within a short drive of this lovely Somerset village!
