Delightful period/retro styled cottage in the heart of a popular and picturesque Somerset market town. A great base for exploring Somerset or just enjoying the charms of Castle Cary; the Tuesday food market, weekend antiques market, cosy local pubs, and lovely countryside walks right on your doorstep.
The cottage itself is well located within the old town centre, but in a quiet alleyway with a sunny private patio/garden area.
Walking distance from Castle Cary rail station, free parking nearby.

The space
The cottage is newly renovated but has a whole host of original features such as wooden beams, polished stone flagstone and timber floors. It's tastefully decorated with items collected from local furniture fairs, and where-ever possible we've used up-cycled materials such as the the school science laboratory worktops in the kitchen, and units recovered from a 1940's home.
Despite its period charm the cottage has some modern benefits like toasty warm central heating, new plumbing and electrics, and the full range of modern appliances.
The cottage will comfortably accommodate four people in the generously sized double bedrooms and a modern shower room with unlimited hot water.
The kitchen and dining area is perfect for group meals and the antique farmhouse dining table is great for enjoying home cooked meals using locally sourced food from the range of shops and markets on your doorstep.

Guest access
All areas accessible for guests. This is not a shared space and you will have the entire cottage to yourselves.

Other things to note
The house does not have its own parking, but there is a large two car park about 2 minutes walk from the house, where you can park for free. The car park is on 'Millbrook Gardens BA7 7EE', just behind the garage.
Note that you can park on street in the town centre, but its limited to 2 hours during the day.

Location

Somerset, England, United Kingdom

Castle Cary is a small market town surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside, and has been described as one of Somerset's prettiest places. The town is characterised by its lovely old buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. Castle Cary has some lovely traditional shops and boutiques, a great delicatessen, a number of places to eat, and a fantastic traditional English pub called the George, all located in close walking distance from the cottage. There is a food market each Tuesday, and during the summer an antiques market at the weekend.
Take a walk up the path next to the George to explore the footpaths around the old castle, and take in the amazing views across the Somerset levels and of Glastonbury Tor.
Further afield Castle Cary is a great base to explore Somerset, and there is a huge range of things to do within easy driving distance: Bath, Bristol, The Newt Estate, Shepton Mallet showground, Cheddar Gorge, Cheese Tours, Longleat Safari Park, Wooky Hole, Cadbury Castle, The Fleet Air Arm Museum, Hayne Motor Museum, or just choose to relax and enjoy your stay!

I have a small collection of diverse and interesting properties in London, Barcelona, and Castle Cary. All of my properties have either been built or renovated by myself, with a strong emphasis upon sustainability, a combination of retro and modern styling, and use of up cycled and recycled materials.
