Holiday Rental House
Ideal property for a family holiday in a super location ideal for the coast and countryside with myriad attractions. This former blacksmith’s forge offers something a bit different. It is full of character with exposed stone walls, a wealth of beams, high ceiling, and a minstrels’ gallery overlooking the spacious living area. There is also a grand piano to practise on! The ground floor bedroom leads off the living room and has patio doors with access to the Italian style garden with benches. The patio doors from the living room open out to a paved seating area overlooking the lake, a peaceful spot with a picnic bench from which to observe the bird life. A wrought iron spiral staircase leads up to the twin room in the gallery, and through to the en-suite double bedroom.

Also within an hour’s drive are the cities of Bath and Bristol. Visit Glastonbury, with its abbey ruins and famous tor, and the Clarks retail village at Street. For keen walkers and cyclists, the Somerset Levels, the Mendips and the Quantock Hills are all in the area. Shop 11/2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
