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.

    We had a lovely week in this cosy warm cottage. Well equipped and in an excellent location for exploring Somerset. It was nice and peaceful and very clean. We had beautiful weather so could take advantage of sitting in the sunny garden .

    We stayed at the cottage for a short break. The owners were very friendly on our arrival and had left a 'welcoming pack' e.g biscuits, wine, eggs etc in the cottage. Cottage very comfortable and ideal for touring the Somerset area. Very enjoyable stay.

    It was a lovely cottage with good facilities, my husband cooked a delicious evening meal using all the kitchen equipment and we very much enjoyed the lovely fresh eggs provided by the owner.

    Cottage was fantastic. Very cosy and beautiful inside. Very secure. Peaceful and quiet. Perfect location for shops and restaurants. Absolutely ideal for a couple. There were also lots of leaflets and guides which were very helpful. The welcome pack was also a lovely surprise and very useful.
