The property

This Grade II, semi-detached, stone cottage believed to have been constructed in 1850 rests down a quiet lane on the edge of the historic town of Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

Formerly used for housing brewery workers, this period property was historically two cottages in a terrace of four and provides a characterful stay for four guests and their pooch.

Upon arrival, leave the car in one of the off-road parking spaces and head through the front door into your new-home-from-home.

Make yourself at home in the sitting room, getting comfortable on the settee and armchairs beside the open fire which stands in a beautiful original fireplace, with a Smart TV to provide entertainment.

Head over to the kitchen where you’ll find a range of appliances to assist with home-cooking, including a gas range style cooker with an electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher so you won’t have to lift a finger when cleaning up!

Serve the fruits of your labour at either the dining table in the living room, or at the kitchen table for a homely feel, toasting to a long-awaited break with your nearest and dearest.

The bedrooms are situated upstairs and include a double and a twin, both benefitting from en-suite facilities including a shower room and bathroom.

Step outside and take a seat at the bistro table and chairs.

Then perhaps take your canine companion for a well-deserved romp in the field to the rear of the property and enjoy the sounds of the trickling brook and birdsong on your way.

Nestled just outside of Shepton Mallet’s historic town centre, Field Cottage is perfectly positioned for a rural escape with countryside views, whilst a gentle stroll will bring you to a range of amenities and attractions; seek out some good food in one of the many superb eateries around, take in the eclectic mix of new and old architecture as you pass, or head into town to pick up some produce for a romantic meal back at the cottage, with a number of convenience stores and takeaways to choose from too!

When you are ready to explore, venture to the town of Glastonbury, famous for its music festival and medieval sites, or even closer to the beautiful Cathedral city of Wells, whilst those looking to get their steps in can access the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to a myriad of walking and cycling routes.

Choose Field Cottage and experience the best of this Somerset location.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
