The property

This lovely detached bungalow is quietly tucked away down a little lane near the church in the village of Higher Odcombe in Somerset.

This attractive cottage is ideal for friends and families wishing to get away for a little peace and quiet.

From the cottage there are breathtaking views which are revealed when you reach the inside and then the conservatory and gardens.

You can literally see for miles across the most glorious unspoilt Somerset countryside!

After you have prepared and enjoyed your meal in the well-fitted kitchen, you may actually enjoy washing up gazing out of the window at the sensational view!

Plenty of space to socialise with a bright dining room and the sitting room opens out into a conservatory, a lovely sunny place to relax, enjoy refreshments and take in the view.

Then at the end of the day snuggle up in one of the two comfortable bedrooms, and dream of your day’s adventures!

Outside this charming cottage there is an enclosed wrap-around garden with furniture where you can sit and relax with a good book and refreshing drink, whilst taking in the absolute quietness around you.

If you like a brisk walk, take the lane down to the nearby pub which is well known locally for its ales which are brewed on site, and together with some good food will set you up for the climb back up to your cosy cottage.

Nearby, the National Trust’s Montacute House and beautiful gardens offer a fascinating day out.

Alternatively, you can take a trip to Yeovilton’s Fleet Air Arm Museum with lots of planes to view, including Concorde.

There are plenty of other attractions within easy reach to keep you busy too, such as mystical Glastonbury, Wells Cathedral, the Haynes Motor Museum, and historic Sherborne, the list is endless!

This really is a super and comfortable holiday home in a fascinating Somerset location.

About the location


Yeovil 3 miles.

The quaint Somerset village of Odcombe nestles on a hillside close to the vibrant town of Yeovil. It is actually a village of two distinct parts, Higher Odcombe, near the top of the hill with its impressive village church, and Lower Odcombe with its pretty cottages and friendly village pub, which is well known for its local micro-brewery. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, many of the cottages have been built from the lovely warm coloured hamstone, quarried locally, giving the village a charming olde-worlde atmosphere. The adjacent village of Montacute is most well known for Montacute House a superb Elizabethan mansion with stunning gardens, now managed by the National Trust, widely used as a location for films including ‘Wolf Hall’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Nearby Yeovil offers a good selection of shops and restaurants, as well as a lively theatre, multi-cinema and 10-pin bowling alley. An easy drive takes you to Yeovilton's Fleet Air Arm Museum, or Haynes Motor Museum, and also within reach are Ham Hill Country Park, Ninesprings Country Park and a number of National Trust properties. Alternatively, explore mystical Glastonbury, or the UK's smallest city, Wells, with its majestic cathedral. With ancient Sherborne, and its castles and abbey, as well as the scenic Dorset coastline both easily accessible, you will find plenty to do within easy reach of this charming Somerset village.
