This cosy property dates back to the 17th century and was once the village lock-up; it now makes an ideal base for a romantic getaway.

This cosy property dates back to the 17th century and was once the village lock-up; it now makes an ideal base for a romantic getaway.

This Grade II listed, 17th century stone cottage is set in an elevated position, above a quiet lane in the pretty Somerset village of Coleford, midway between Bath and Wells. What was once the village lock-up, and the oldest standing building in the village, has now been converted into a cosy semi-detached holiday cottage with some great features inside. Snuggle up in front of the warming wood burner in the cosy beamed living/dining room, with the dining area found in one of the turrets, which offers intimate dining for two. Ascend to the charming, kingsize bedroom in the upper floor of the turret, complete with a study where you’ll also find an interesting selection of books for you to browse amongst at your leisure, as well as a second bedroom with a ¾ double bed and exposed stone walls. On warmer days, enjoy a barbecue in the shared enclosed courtyard with garden furniture, chiminea and BBQ.
Discover the ruins of the nearby canal aqueduct, or follow the babbling brook as it winds its way through the pretty villages of Mells and Great Elm towards the town of Frome. Alternatively, a drive in any direction will take you to many places of interest including the historic cities of Bath and Wells, mystical Glastonbury, the stunning Mendip Hills and Longleat Forest Center Parc is a 13 mile drive. This cottage offers a very special and unforgettable holiday experience at any time of the year. Shop 1 mile, pub 500 yards, restaurant 3 miles.
