Built from traditional hamstone and dating back over 250 years, this Somerset cottage has been lovingly restored and renovated, combining country charm and character with modern living. Wayside Cottage has kept many of its original charms, boasting features such as an original inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, and exposed stone walls, alongside views of the surrounding Somerset countryside.
The kitchen is in perfect keeping with the cottage and has a lovely dining area and a decorative fireplace. The delightful sitting room with the original inglenook fireplace has stairs to two peaceful and tastefully decorated bedrooms. The bathroom is on the ground floor and there is a useful utility room on this floor as well.
Outside, an enclosed courtyard garden has seating, making it a perfect spot to sit and relax after a busy day’s sightseeing.
This property is the perfect getaway for a holiday in this wonderful area. Only a short walk away are the amenities of Shepton Beauchamp, including a shop, pub and family-run butchers, while the quaint town of Ilminster is only 5 miles away.
Situated amidst peace and tranquillity, the cottage is located on a National Cycle Route. Wayside Cottage is ideally located between the Somerset Levels and The Blackdown Hills, the latter of which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to numerous species of wildlife and plants, making it a beautiful location for walking and exploring.
The National Trust’s Barrington Court and Montacute House are nearby, and Perry’s Cider Mill is not to be missed. Less than an hour away lies the stunning Cheddar Gorge to the north, Lyme Regis seaside town to the south, and a little further lies Exmoor National Park, a great day out for all the family.
