The Property
Entering Wilf’s Cottage, the first thing that strikes you are the marvellous and original flagstones underfoot found throughout the majority of the ground floor. From a cosy breakfast room, doors lead to an oak country kitchen with appliances including an integrated dishwasher and a Rangemaster range cooker. A further door leads to a utility room with a Belfast sink, gas boiler and associated controls, a large cupboard housing the hot water cylinder, plus storage along with a separate cloakroom with WC and wetroom shower. A further good-sized and comfortable living room leads from the kitchen and currently provides a versatile and useful family space. From the breakfast room, a further door leads into a cosy study and from there, a small step leads up into a lovely dining room with the most wonderful example of a Georgian cast iron fire grate set in an original 17th-century limestone surround and inglenook fireplace. A further inner hallway links to the staircase and a comforting and peaceful sitting room complete with a woodburning stove set in an enormous inglenook fireplace. An original stone curved staircase leads around the side of the inglenook and rises gently to the first floor and the principal bedroom, with another door leading onto a large ensuite bathroom. A further three characterful bedrooms are also found on the first floor, one with an ensuite and a separate family bathroom. Ample and incredibly useful storage in the form of cupboards and shelving is found everywhere in the house.

All the rooms have views through the pretty windows over the traditional cottage gardens, open countryside, or village lane,

The lovely cottage gardens surrounding Wilf’s Cottage are a mix of lawned areas with deep borders and established shrubs, hedging, orchard and a wild area with numerous productive old apple, plum and pear trees. There is a working ‘well’ in the grounds, and everywhere is planted with wonderful climbers and herbaceous plants. Here and there, plants happily self-seed, and there is the most delightful covered area at the rear of the cottage providing the most attractive and sheltered seating spot - perfect for alfresco dining, whatever the British weather holds! There is a further paved patio area with plenty of space to relax, and access to the old barn (previously used as garaging) is from the rear lawn.

Wilf’s Cottage is approached via timber entrance gates leading to a gravelled parking area for a number of vehicles, plus an electric car charging point, and all are framed by mature and attractive trees.
Located to the side of Wilf’s Cottage is Wilf’s Other Cottage, which is a good-sized two-storey stone building complete with planning permission for conversion to additional accommodation. (Planning References to be found on Somerset County Council planning portal -08/02229/LBC)

The whole of the property is enclosed by original stone walling and established hedging and the orchard is securely fenced.
