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.

    I thought the cottage was a really lovely place to stay. Not far for us to travel to Bath Christmas market and other place of interest. The only thing I would say was that when we arrived and opened the cottage it did smell of dogs but apart from that a very enjoyable stay.

    A really lovely cottage, well equipped, very clean. This cottage has the most comfortable beds of all the cottages we have ever stayed in. The only fault we found was that the key pad/entrance door is at the back of the property, which means you have to negotiate many steep steps , I would advise that the owners also put car parking spaces on the front garden which the neighbouring properties have done. The local pub is friendly and has good food. All the people we met were very friendly in the village. Our dogs enjoyed their walks and the garden even though it was tiered. We would go back to this property again.

    One of the best cottages I have ever stayed in . Very clean and well equipped. The only downside was the entrance was at the back with steps down to the back door. It was ok for us but could be a problem for someone with mobility issues. Would love to stay again in the future. 10/10 to the owners thank you.

    Overall quite satisfied and would probably return. Shortfalls were upstairs radiators were noisy and ineffective due to air. Insufficient food storage space in kitchen cupboards and fridge. 3rd bedroom lacked any wardrobes and drawers. Folding shower door needs fixing. Internet unreliable.

    The cottage was in a lovely and very quiet location. We had plenty of space and equipment, which made our stay stress free. We all slept very well because we felt at home quickly. If I visit this region again with friends or family I will try to book it again because its location was ideal to reach Bristol, Bath and even Cardiff.

    Spacious and cosy house, clean and well laid out inside. Only two negatives being, path from where you park car at rear, to rear door to house, poorly lit, could do with a light of some kind, timer or sensor light fixed to garage wall, aimed at stepping stone pathway towards gate and back door, would be great! Other was lack of water pressure on power meaning reliant on the one bathroom. Otherwise, pleased for what we paid, quite, warm, well equipped, little store 5 minute walk, Bath 25 minute drive, lush pub restaurant ' The Hunters Rest 10 minute drive.
