8 St Davids Place is a detached hidden gem within a quiet oasis in the midst of the bustling town of Bruton. This huddle of pretty cottages, entered through an archway, are positioned within a pedestrian only street. Dating back to the 1800s this unique setting is totally secluded providing a calm and peaceful environment in which to reside.
This delightful "tardis" like period property is beautifully presented with a well equipped kitchen, separate dining room and a cozy and spacious sitting room.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms and a family shower room.
A pretty partially walled peaceful, sunny garden provides the perfect spot to dine outside with ample space for a table and chairs. Stone steps lead from the courtyard up to a lawned area and shed.
Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. The town has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including “At the Chapel” and “The Roth Bar” at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery. An exciting addition to the high street is the restaurant "Osip" recently opened and run by a Michelin starred chef. The town also has a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops. Bruton is only 5 minute-drive from the very pretty town of Castle Cary which has a mainline railway station and the new hotel and restaurant The Newt (https://thenewtinsomerset.com/).
