This well appointed cottage is offered furnished as a short-term rental in the lovely village of Shapwick and is available now.
The front door opens into a kitchen with real 'wow' factor with bespoke cabinetry in a mix of colours and American elm. Other features are the Silestone quartz work surfaces and a limestone floor with underfloor heating. High end appliances are integrated, including Fisher & Paykel dish-drawers and De Dietrich steam and conventional ovens - a glossy induction hob with invisible high power extractor complete the scene. There is also a comfy sofa to sit and watch the cook!
An under-stairs nook is a useful place for coats and boots. Step down to a breakfast dining table, where bi-fold doors open out to a secluded courtyard and large skylights let the light flood in. An old Blue Lias cobbled step leads up to a good sized laundry/utility room. This room exudes character with lovely beams on a sloping ceiling, a high-level window and whitewashed stone walls. There are fitted cupboards and a washing machine, also a downstairs WC with exposed stonework and a wood plank ceiling.
Two glazed doors lead from the kitchen into a very spacious and light sitting/dining room with time worn Blue Lias flags and ceiling beams. At one end, there is a wide inglenook with a Jetmaster open fire and a bread oven to the side. This room is great for entertaining with sofas and a dining table with chairs.
Stairs lead up to a middle landing with further stairs up on each side. On one side, the master bedroom with oak flooring, a walk-in cupboard and built-in wardrobes and a stylish en-suite shower room. On the other side, two double bedrooms and a newly fitted family bathroom.
Outside the front of the property is allocated parking for two cars. A secluded courtyard and terrace leads from the kitchen of the house.
Shapwick is one of a number of small villages that lie close to the Polden Hills and on the Southern edge of the Somerset levels. There is a village shop/post office and farm shop 3 miles away at Edington "Gwilliams of Edington" a family run business which originally specialises in garden machinery but offers so much more including a delicatessen and post office - if you cant buy it at Gwilliams you cant buy it anywhere, from fine champagne to secateurs to posting a letter, Gwilliams has it all. There are great pubs nearby, The Ashcott Inn and Ring O Bells in nearby Ashcott as well as The Crown offering great food in Catcott, not to mention in the village of Cossington is The Red Tile which specialise in pizza.

Nearby, the thriving town of Street offers a wide variety of retail opportunities including Clarks Village and the usual selection of supermarkets. Recreational facilities include two swimming pools and Strode theatre. Shapwick is well situated for Glastonbury a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, sporting facilities and supermarkets.
