In the heart of the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Whitstone Cottage has everything you could want from a UK holiday.

Whether you're a couple looking for a romantic retreat, a family wanting a fun getaway or if you're looking for fabulous walking/cycling routes - Whitstone Cottage is for you.

The space
Whitstone Cottage was built circa 1740 and originally used as a paper mill in the historic town of Shepton Mallet. It was converted to a house in 2004. It has a raft of period features; exposed stone, original 18th century beams and is located on the old road into the town. The cottage is on a quiet residential street with free off road parking for one car. There is a pay and display car park for any additional cars a 5 minute walk away. Entry to the cottage is by key safe.

Other things to note
There is a retained Fire Station on Board Cross, near to the cottage. There is no permanent presence at the station, but it is used in emergencies and for an hour of training 7:30pm on a Wednesday evening. Board Cross is sometimes used by firefighters attending a 'shout', so please be prepared to give way quickly to them, should you be leaving or arriving at the cottage in your car.

I follow Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol, which was developed with expert guidance. Here are a few highlights:

I sanitise all touch surfaces, down to the doorknobs, handles on draws, chairs and coat hangers.
I also provide a freshly washed shower curtain for each new guest
I use cleaners and disinfectants approved by global health agencies, and I wear protective gear to help prevent cross-contamination
I clean each room using extensive cleaning checklists
I provide extra cleaning supplies, so you can clean as you stay
I comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines

Location

Somerset, England, United Kingdom

Conveniently located for Glastonbury Festival, Kilver Court Gardens and Designer Village (home to Mulberry), The Bath and West Showground and the Mendip Hills AONB, Shepton Mallet is an eclectic market town in the heart of Somerset. One of the oldest towns in the country and is mentioned in the Doomsday Book as 'Cepeton', meaning Sheep Town. It was the first place in the UK to be given 2 names by King Henry I in 1100. Tourist Information will be available at the property, but please let me know if you would like a copy emailed to you in advance.
