Set on the edge of the bustling village in rolling countryside, Penny Cottage is a comfortable holiday hideaway.

Set on the edge of the bustling village of High Littleton in rolling Somerset countryside, Penny Cottage dates back to 1860. This holiday hideaway lies just nine miles from the centre of Bath , the jewel of Southwest England, and ten miles from Bristol with its scores of cultural and historical attractions. The terraced cottage was christened during renovations, when the owners found a couple of old pennies under the floorboards. More old pennies from charity and antique shops dating from 1863 have been added and put up in frames around the cottage. There are now 10 of them. Numerous public footpaths branch out from the village. A short walk up the lane toward Mearns puts you on the path to the nearby pretty village of Timsbury, and takes in great views of the rolling countryside. The Greyfield Colliery, which once stood on the other side of the village from Penny Cottage, has left its name to Greyfield’s Wood, a beautiful and well-cared for Woodland Trust site that conceals a secret waterfall, sometimes jokingly referred to as the Niagara Falls of Somerset. Also within easy reach are the cathedral town of Wells, atmospheric Glastonbury, the geological wonders of Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge, the beauties of the Chew Valley and the Mendip Hills, plus a host of English villages such as Chew Magna, Pensford, Timsbury and Bishop Sutton. Shops, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Lovely cottage two double rooms good size but smaller room a bit of a squeeze with two beds. Also both beds were like camp beds. Not comfortable for an adult. Definitely need to unload car from front of house if arriving in the dark. Garden quite steep.

    Lovely cottage, comfortable and clean There was a slight problem for us as we had elderly parents (both needing walking aids) and there was no mention that entrance from the front was direct from the road with no footpath and access from the back was via a slope and stepping stones - lighting in both areas was poor at night

    We had a lovely stay, it was perfect for a small gathering of friends for walking and chilling out. The woodburner was perfect for warming up after soggy days out. The pub in the village was welcoming and took dogs.

    Clear instructions to the property, Very clean and comfortable, in a great location. A couple of 100m walk to catch a bus into Bath. We travelled to Wookey Hole and the Cheddar Caves for some great walks with a dog, the traditional family run tea shop in Cheddar is highly recommended (inc a selection of gluten free selection of cakes and scones!).

    We were very comfortable at Penny Cottage - it was beautifully furnished for a family holiday & a lot of thought had gone into providing everything ,including dvds, toys and hairdryers -it felt very homely & my 2-year-old grand-daughter managed the stairs with no trouble. She and her 8-year-old sister loved their bedroom! The beds in the double rooms were extremely comfortable. Good location - we were able to visit lots of interesting places nearby, including Bath, Bradford-on-Avon, Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury & Stonehenge as well as walking in the woods nearby, where we found the local equivalent of Niagara Falls!

    The cottage is lovely, everything you need. More spacious then expected. Bedrooms are like a luxury hotel. Lovely local pubs and handy short dog walks on the doorstep. Only one downside (if you want to call it that) nobody had phone network service and the internet was only working for 3 days. Overall a great stay.

    Bigger on the inside than it looks so plenty of space. A very enjoyable weekend in clean, comfortable and homely environment with modern bathrooms and kitchen.
