This home is beyond characterful, inside and out. Dating back to 1880, the cottage is not only filled with historic charm but it packs a serious punch with its style and design. Once you've taken in the glorious facade, settle into a vibrant, warm, and artfully eclectic lounge. The kitchen has a contemporary farmhouse feel, and the rustic dining table is a stylish space to serve all your meals. The bedrooms are rich and luxe, and practically come with their own art galleries - filled with pictures and paintings. You'll be based on the outskirts of the Mendip Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Pack your walking boots and a few good books for stunning hikes and picnics in the countryside. This striking home is a truly unique space in Somerset. Whether you're relaxing in the home or exploring the grounds, the view will be a knockout.
