Charming 4 bedroom Sixteenth century cottage on the edge of the Babington House estate in Somerset. There is only one other house within a quarter mile so perfect fora distanced get away.

Lawned garden to relax in and lots of local walks with few people on them, even at normal times.

Less than half an hour into Bath with all amenities and Georgian splendour, ten minutes into arty Frome and a hop into perfect English village Mells.

The space
Listed extended sixteenth century cottage. Very light, airy and spacious reception rooms. Four good sized double bedrooms. Everything newly renovated. Original beams and window seats. The cottage is easily accessible yet about half a mile down a quiet lane with one other property adjacent.

Set on the edge of the Babington estate with glorious views, peace and harmony at your fingertips. Footpaths at your doorsteps, country pubs, cycle path. Two wood burners, idiosyncratic period features, blend of period chintz and modern amenities.

Guest access
This cottage is for self-catering. Guests have access to the full house and garden. This includes table tennis, bicycles, copious games, puzzles etc

Other things to note
It is a lovely secluded spot, with only one other building within a quarter mile, while having easy access to local pubs and to popular spots like Bath, Frome, Wells and Glastonbury.

(Though be aware the one other building is next door, so we ask you not to play music outdoors, especially at night, or hold any sort of party.)

Charity Cottage is in the countryside, very secluded with only 1 property within a quarter of a mile. It is just 15 miles from Bath, 5 miles from Frome and 2 miles from Mells. It is also just 400 metres, down a path, from Babington House. Shops are two miles away, as are three or four excellent country pubs.

Dawn is originally from Bath, so the cottage is perfect for exploring her home area. We love cycling round the nearby lanes and heading over to Mells for lunch at the cafe, a pizza at the lovely walled garden or a meal at the Talbot.
