East Cottage (self-catering) - Croscombe
Long Street, Croscombe, Somerset, BA5 3QH Tel: 01761 471167
East Cottage, a 5 Star rated self-catering cottage, situated in the ancient and picturesque mid-Somerset village of Croscombe halfway between the medieval city of Wells (1½ miles) and the market town of Shepton Mallet (1½ miles), is the perfect holiday home from which to enjoy the many attractions this beautiful area has to offer.
This gorgeous cottage, which dates back to the 17th century, has an abundance of period features and traditional English country charm. This is tastefully combined with the provision of all the modern conveniences that you would expect to find in a 5 star cottage.
The cottage itself has many lovely attributes. On the ground floor is the beamed living/dining-room with open inglenook fireplace, exposed stone walls and stone mullion windows, as well as TV, DVD and IPod dock; well-equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, gas hob, electric oven and microwave; and utility room with washing-machine and dishwasher.
A beautiful stone spiral staircase leads up to the first floor to the 2 large double bedrooms and bathroom with WC, washbasin, bath and separate shower cubicle. Again, beams, mullion windows and charming features in abundance!
The cottage sleeps 4 (plus cot) in two bedrooms comprising 1 with king size double bed, and the other which can either be made up as a super king size double, or with 2 twin single beds. The cottage is therefore ideal for both families with children, or for couples trying to escape them!
Children of all ages are welcome at East Cottage. A travel cot is provided (if required), as well as stair-gates and high chair. We provide an essentials baby box – just in case you forget anything – as well as a baby-changing mat and baby bath. There is also a toy box and a selection of games, jigsaws, books and DVDs.
There are 2 parking spaces for the exclusive use of guests staying at East Cottage in the courtyard to the right of the cottage. Behind the courtyard, a small flight of steps leads to the private, secluded and gated garden. The well-established walled garden includes lawned areas, herbaceous borders and a south-facing patio, ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining. We also provide a barbeque and a supply of charcoal.
