A beautiful Georgian cottage with a private courtyard in the heart of Castle Cary, Somerset. The best of all worlds - wonderful local shops and delis, five minutes walk to glorious countryside and a couple of miles from Bruton, Hauser + Wirth, The Newt and Stourhead. The perfect spot to explore all Somerset has to offer and stay in an idyllic cottage with its own front door and private courtyard.

Perfect for a couple or small family who love food, gardens + the great outdoors.

The space
The cottage is a traditional Georgian cottage that dates back to 1800, on a quiet residential street in Castle Cary. It has an open plan living and dining area, with original flag stone floors. Upstairs is a main bedroom, with a super-king bed and bathroom. On the top floor is a mezzanine bedroom in the eaves (with slightly restricted head height), perfect for children. Additional beds and cots can be provided for children.

Where you’ll be

Somerset, England, United Kingdom

Castle Cary is a historic market town in the heart of Somerset. It has a thriving weekly market on Tuesdays and a busy high street jam-packed with independent shops selling excellent local produce - a wonderful butcher, a delicious deli, art gallery, antiques shops and brilliant independent bookshop.

It is a two minute walk out into the Somerset countryside, with far-reaching views to Glastonbury Tor and beyond from the top of Lodge Hill, which overlooks the town.

Bruton is just a couple miles down the road, with Hauser + Wirth, At The Chapel and new Michelin-starred Osip. You can walk to The Newt from the cottage, and Alfred's Tower and Stourhead are a 10 minute drive.

It is also a great spot from which to explore Dorset which is 15 mins away, and the Jurassic coast which is a 45 minute drive.
