The property

… on the outskirts of Henstridge, an attractive, single-storey, mid-18th cent. cottage at the end of a 200 yard drive with working apple orchards (juicing in autumn) and paddocks grazed by sheep and miniature Shetland ponies on either side. It nestles at the end of a beautiful garden (shared with the owner), a real suntrap (table/chairs, barbecue, guinea pigs) enclosed by stone walls. The cottage adjoins the owner's converted threshing barn. Home-produced eggs and prize-winning apple juice available.

The cottage has lots of character with beams, leaded windows and polished pine floors (rugs). Gravelled drive and yard to 2 shallow steps up to front door. Hall, off which living/dining/kitchen (washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) overlooking the garden, with high ceiling, woodburner and TV/DVD/video. Two pretty, pink bedrooms (Velux windows) – a small single, and a double. Bathroom (suite with corner bath with seat, shower over and hand-shower). Transport from/to train station (by arrangement). No children under 4. A peaceful, relaxing place with a short walk into the village and lots to see in the area, especially lovely Nat. Trust properties.
