Description

Set near where Glastonbury Festival is held, this Grade II listed cottage offers excellent opportunities to explore beautiful Mendip countryside.


This charming cottage is part of the grounds of Longbridge House, an historic house, famed locally for being where the Duke of Monmouth stayed, before and after the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.

The accommodation, which is designed for 2 people, retains many original characteristics with a high vaulted ceiling, beams and thick stone walls. There is also a stylish, open-tread, spiral staircase to a vaulted, galleried bedroom which looks down onto a gorgeous chandelier and over the main living area, giving a great sense of space.

Steps lead to a sunny south-facing decked area complete with Roman well, views over surrounding buildings, and backing onto the owner’s garden with a vegetable patch, fruit trees and chickens!

Attractions nearby include Shepton Mallet high street which is within walking distance, convenient for picking up the morning paper, a pint of milk, a takeaway or an evening meal in a restaurant. The sleepy village of Pilton, where the Glastonbury Festival is held, is 3 miles away, the city of Wells with its cathedral and Bishops’ Palace is 5 minutes’ drive, and timeless Glastonbury, with its abbey ruins and famous tor, is a 15-minute drive.

Bath is 40 minutes away with its Georgian architecure, Roman Baths, Royal Crescent, Thermae Bath Spa and abbey, and the Royal Bath and West Showground is a 5-minute drive. Longleat House and Safari Park is 20 minutes by car, and the spectacular Cheddar Gorge and Caves and Wookey Hole Show Caves are within 20-25 minutes’ drive. The beautiful Mendip countryside is right on the doorstep and the coast is within striking distance. For ‘shopaholics’, Kilver Court Designer Emporium is 1 mile down the road, plus the designer shopping outlet centre ‘Clarks Village’ is about a 15-minute drive away at Street. Bristol airport and the city of Bristol are both approximately 50 minutes away, and the nearest train station is Castle Cary, approximately 6 miles away. Shops, pubs and restaurants 500 yards.

    This is a lovely little cottage. In a very quiet spot. Also a good central area for touring somerset. Close to shops etc for stocking up on what you need . Although the owners, give you a very good start with a welcome package. So if you have a long drive you don't have to rush straight out to get milk ,tea bags etc.

    A delightful cottage. Hosts were really nice and welcome pack was much appreciated. Sitting on the swing on the garden terrace in the autumn sunshine was sheer joy! Shepton Mallet was a convenient location for visiting the lovely area but was a little disappointing itself, quite a lot of rubbish on the streets and the High Street / Market Cross area rather run down.

    It was a fantastic little cottage. The welcome pack was very generous. The cottage was well equipped and very comfy. The owners had spent a lot of time putting together plenty of information of the area. We felt very safe and secure.
