    “Beautiful Cottage”

    I am extremely apologetic within how late I am leaving our review for this most wonderful stay. ...

    I am extremely apologetic within how late I am leaving our review for this most wonderful stay. My self and my Fiancé had the most magical New Years stay at Idlers cottage. Totalling of 4 nights. We have stayed in many places, however this little hidden gem has for sure become one of our favourites. The location it’s self is just beautiful. The perfect chocolate box little village you could wish for. We enjoyed many evenings strolling through the village taking in all of the beauty of the Christmas lights/beautiful buildings. Charles is very welcoming and accommodating. Everything you could wish for is right inside of the cottage - making it a very special stay. Idlers cottage is beautifully decorated. It is so very cutesy and cosy inside. Along with a very private garden area outside. It is the perfect hideaway for that well needed break. I really could not recommend enough. Thank you again. We can’t wait to return. Sam & Pedro

The property

Tucked away in the garden of the owners' Grade II listed thatched cottage, within the attractive conservation area of the small Somerset town of South Petherton, sits this wonderfully charming hamstone studio cottage.

Tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard, with a warming woodburner, this is a superb Somerset cottage, ideal for a romantic break.

The private patio area is perfect for unwinding, while the shops and pubs serving good food are just a short walk.

The area has a wealth of National Trust properties and places of interest, including East Lambrook Manor Gardens, Montecute House, and Forde Abbey.

An easy drive takes you to Sherborne, Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, Glastonbury, Bath and even the Jurassic Coast.

A truly special South Petherton cottage.
