Cosy, Grade II Listed Farmhouse
Atherstone Farm Cottage
Retreat Menu +

Atherstone Farm Cottage forms part of a cosy, grade II listed thatched farmhouse.

Set in a beautiful, 17th-century, Grade II listed farm courtyard, the two-bedroom Atherstone Farm Cottage perfectly blends traditional, rural living with all of the luxurious comforts of a modern holiday home. Encompassing a charming thatched roof, stone floors, sturdy oak beams and a cosy log-burning stove set into a grand fireplace, there is nowhere finer to retire to following a day of exploring the Somerset countryside.

The cottage boasts two comfortable en-suite bedrooms, with deep mattresses, 400 thread count cotton bedding, indulgent mattress toppers and fluffy bathrobes, for full relaxation. The master bedroom is equipped with a king-sized bed and a roll-top bath plus walk-in shower in the spacious bathroom. The second bedroom can be arranged as a super-king or twin, with a walk-in modern wet room complete with heated stone tile floors.

The contemporary kitchen has a small dining area for lazy breakfasts and a handy, separate utility with laundry facilities and a large fridge-freezer (including ice machine!). Well equipped, the kitchen has an electric oven, hob and dishwasher for whipping up indulgent feasts of local fayre.

Adjacent to the kitchen, guests can find a spacious, stone-floored living/dining area with a wood-burning stove, 55” flat-screen TV and sumptuous sofas for snoozing. The focal point of this space however is the magnificent dining table that can easily seat 10-12, should you wish to entertain any extra guests. The Bluetooth sound bar is perfect for playing an ambient tune whilst dining, or for really getting knee deep in a great film!

Stepping outside, Atherstone Farm Cottage has a good-sized, enclosed, garden with plenty of teak outdoor furniture for soaking up the summer sunshine, plus a charcoal BBQ for long afternoons spent sizzling steaks. There is also convenient, private parking for two cars.

Sleeping four, Atherstone Farm Cottage can also be rented alongside the adjoining Atherstone Farm that sleeps an additional ten guests. The cottage is found at one end of the farmhouse (which dates back to 1725) and the two are joined through lockable doors on the ground floor, for the convenience of any groups renting both.

Ideally placed to explore it’s rural location, the cottage is on the doorstep of plenty of pubs, restaurants and things to do, most of which are accessible on foot or by bicycle. The tiny hamlet of Atherstone is home to some fantastic little inns that are worth stopping into; including the Barrington Boar, Dinnington Docks and the Lord Poulett Arms. The town of Ilminster is also not too far away, for convenient shopping trips to stock up on essentials.

Barrington House, a National Trust house with gardens open to the public, is nearby, as is Dillington House. The Dennis Chinaworks in Shepton Beauchamp are also very close and worth a visit, for the tea rooms as much as anything else! There are several local cider producers including Perry’s Cider in Dowlish Wake and Julian Temperley’s cider and cider brandy distillery over at Burrow Hill. Just 40 minutes away, the beach at Lyme Regis and walks along the Jurassic coastline are well worth adding to your itinerary.
