    “Sue is a most generous and attentive host.”

    There was a valued welcome pack on arrival including all the basics needed until a guest could shop. Sue made herself readily available on our arrival to welcome us to the cottage. She then was available if there are any issues but gives her guests the space they may also wish. The cottage is comfortable, clean and perfectly located to visit key places of interest in Somerset and the bordering counties of Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire. The cottage is basic but clean and tidy.

    There was a valued welcome pack on arrival including all the basics needed until a guest could shop. Sue made herself readily available on our arrival to welcome us to the cottage. She then was available if there are any issues but gives her guests the space they may also wish. The cottage is comfortable, clean and perfectly located to visit key places of interest in Somerset and the bordering counties of Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire. The cottage is basic but clean and tidy. There is good secure parking on site. There are two single beds in a large room adjacent to the kitchen and two small toilet/shower areas. A private enclosed courtyard at the rear of the property was lovely to sit on and enjoy the evening sun. The location was rural, extremely quiet and located up a short road which joined the main roads and nearly A303. I would return to this cottage again due to the attentiveness/care of the host and its location.

The property

An attractive stone-built cottage, all on one level, in Catsgore just outside the charming town of Somerton.

This property is ideal for a couple who love walking and exploring the beautiful countryside as it is situated right in the heart of the luscious landscape.

There is a comfortable twin bedroom with lovely en-suite shower room for your convenience.

As you go into the sitting room, you will be welcomed by a comfy reclining leather 3-seater sofa so why not get cosy and relax with the electric fire on to keep you warm?

There is also a TV to keep you entertained or simply sit quietly and indulge in a favourite book.

The kitchen has a dining area, should you choose to eat at home and throughout the property there are quaint furnishings to make you feel right at home.

This humble accommodation is detached from the Owner’s house next door, with an undercover timber garage to park your car and outside is a gravelled patio area with chairs and table to sit out and enjoy an evening meal in the peaceful surroundings.

There are wonderful views from the property of the garden and the pond and the owners paddock where you can see ducks and geese as well as further afield catching a glimpse of deer.

There are a variety of places of interest nearby including: Royal Fleet Air Arm Museum, National Trust Sourhead Gardens, Glastonbury and Clark’s Outlet Village, not to mention some glorious countryside walking routes.

Somerton is a beautiful destination with old town charm and many historical buildings to see.

Once you've had time to explore, head to one of the delightful tearooms or cafes to take the weight off your feet.

Trout Cottage is in an extremely pleasant, countryside location, yet within walking distance of Somerton with 3 pubs, an excellent bistro and some shops.

Plenty to see and do for a couple looking to get away for a while.
