    “A wonderful place to stay, very comfortable and very well equipped in an idyllic location down a tiny track beside the farmhouse, surrounded by flowers and bird song.”

    Friendly and hospitable owners who really cared about the property and the comfort of your stay. As an added bonus

    Friendly and hospitable owners who really cared about the property and the comfort of your stay. As an added bonus the property is set in a beautiful Somerset village with so many interesting places to visit - the Avalon marshes for birdwatching, several National Trust properties, pretty local towns and excellent walking straight from the cottage. We had an excellent stay and would be happy to return.

The property

About a mile from South Petherton, in the smaller village of East Lambrook (pub, manor house gardens with snowdrop and national geranium collections, plant nursery, tea room, gallery), a neat, detached cottage, beautifully converted from stables with big arched windows and beams.

Across the gravelled drive, the owners’ 17th cent.

thatched farmhouse and charmingly planted walled garden where you have a sitting-out area (table/chairs) and, a little further along the drive, use of an orchard for picnicking (picnic bench).

From drive (sunny bench, occasional horses passing), 2 steps up to arched doors to smart kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, small freezer, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with flagstone floor and breakfast table/chairs.

Study/dining room with flagstone floor.

Oak-floored living room (TV/DVD) with lovely old Knole sofa.

Stairs up to a roomy double bedroom (5' bed, TV) furnished with fine period fabrics; bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate shower).
