With a wood burner, enclosed garden and a shared tennis court, this single-storey cottage enjoys a peaceful location, yet still close to attractions.

Converted into a very spacious, light and airy holiday property with a large open plan living area, this former old dairy, adjacent to the owner’s home at Rectory Farm, is surrounded by fields with sheep and rolling countryside. The property is deceptively spacious with a large open plan living space and a private patio with attractive planters. It offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat, yet is situated just off the A37, providing ample opportunities to explore the many attractions within Somerset. The nearest town is Castle Cary, 5 miles, famous for its Round House, an old town lock-up. Somerton, 6 miles, is allegedly an ancient capital of Wessex and Shepton Mallet has a 50ft market cross dating from 1500. Glastonbury, a thriving market town and a major tourist venue, is 10 miles away. Visit Glastonbury Tor, the abbey and its spiritual essence within the town, and the annual Glastonbury Festival which takes place in nearby Pilton. Street is home to a famous shoe industry and is now well known for its designer outlet shopping complex, Clarks Village. Yeovil town has pedestrian precincts, a wide variety of shops and a number of weekly markets. Spend a day in Wells, England’s smallest city, which is not only a fantastic market town but includes the magnificent cathedral and Bishop’s Palace and gardens. Slightly further afield is Sherborne with its castle, and Cheddar, famous not only for its cheese but also the caves and gorge. Other attractions include Haynes Motor Museum, 6 miles, Yeovilton Naval Air Museum, 10 miles, Bath and West Showground, 7 miles, and National Trust houses such as Lytes Cary and Tintinhull, and Montacute, the location for the TV series ’Wolf Hall’. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

All on the ground floor.

    This is a very well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage. It is in a rural setting but is well placed for visiting Bath, Wells, Glastonbury and if you are prepared to drive further, Weston-Super-Mare, Wookey Hole and Longleat amongst other popular places in Somerset. The owners were welcoming and helpful .The weather wasn't too good for our stay but, had we not chosen to go out each day, the cottage would have been pleasant enough to stay at home and relax.

    My sister and I stayed in The Old Cowshed in September and had a wonderful week. The accommodation was of a very high standard, the best we have ever been in. Everything was clean and worked, especially the showers which were fantastic. The kitchen was very well equipped with anything you could possibly need. There were lots of mugs, cups, glasses, plates, cutlery etc, not just four place settings which is often the case in holiday lets. We found everything had been well thought out, so it really was a home from home. Duncan and Julia were welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. The location was lovely and quiet and we liked the sheep and the cows in the far field. It was ideal for visiting Cheddar Gorge, the Cathedral and Bishops Palace at Wells, and National Trust properties Tintinhull, Lytes Cary, Montacute and Barrington Court.

    The Old Cowshed is one of the best cottages we have stayed in over many, many years. It is spacious, immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the log burner and other excellent festures. The owners are friendly and helpful. The cottage is well placed for visiting this lovely area. Very highly recommended.

    Really lovely property renovated to a very high standard probably the best wood burner we’ve ever seen in all the cottages we’ve been to quite a remote location but very peaceful. Ideall for walking mid and North Somerset.
