    About this property

    Straddling the borders of Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset, this charming row of single-storey cottages is tucked away along a peaceful country lane, close to the village of Templecombe. Adjacent to the owners’ home, and on an alpaca breeding farm, they offer well-equipped and carefully furnished accommodation for a variety of groups, in a central location ideal for exploring. Outdoor seating areas overlooking a central courtyard provide pleasant places of retreat, and the use of an indoor heated swimming pool completes the picture.
    Set amid excellent walking country, the holiday cottages afford ample opportunities for plenty of fresh air, and there are many delights to explore on foot. For those preferring to sightsee further afield, a main line station to Waterloo and Exeter is available from the village and quiet country roads make for scenic drives. The popular attractions of Longleat (with its excellent safari park, animal shows and historic house), Cheddar Gorge and Caves and the splendid NT properties of Stourhead Gardens, Kingston Lacey and Montacute House are all within an easy drive, as is Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the fascinating array of classic cars at the Haynes Motor Museum.
    Also of great historical interest is the abbey town of Sherborne, the famous Gold Hill at Shaftesbury and the medieval towns of Salisbury and Wells – all offer their own blend of quaint shops and museums to explore, individual shops to browse and tearooms for a welcome refreshment break. For an altogether different scene, the south coast beaches and seaside towns can be reached in around an hour’s drive. Active souls can try their hand at a spot of fishing or a round or two of golf locally, while those preferring spectator sports can visit the National Hunt race course in nearby Wincanton. Shop and pub 1 mile.

    "A lovely cottage made even better by the indoor swimming pool. It was great to come back to after a day out."
    Jacqueline ‐ 31 Aug 2018
    "Great location - close to the A303, but yet feels rural enough. We visited the cheddar gorges, Longleat safari park, the jurassic coast and a couple of national trust places. Great for kids - with a games room, swimming pool..perfect end to the day with kids. Great welcome pack made available to guests.With enough planning, bigger parties can rent out the X3 units together - but still have enough privacy at end of each day. Quite pricy for the location - but the pool made it extra special with the kids."

    "We had a lovely week here. The cottage had everything we needed. The welcome pack that was left by the owners was fantastic! The pool was great - if a little cold! But it meant that we didn't have to go out anywhere if we didn't want to because the kids were quite happy spending the day in the pool - which we had to ourselves for the whole week. The kids also really enjoyed the games room. The location of the cottage was very rural but you are only a short drive from supermarkets, pubs and civilisation! It took us over an hour to get to the coast so we only went once. But the weather wasn't great anyway and having the pool more than made up for it! Overall it was a great holiday and we would definitely go back."

    "Well equipped and comfortable with a good welcome pack. It is in a very quiet location about a mile from the village unfortunately there isn't much in the village in the way of shops and pubs. So food shopping and eating were a car trip away. The swimming pool which we had to ourselves was very clean and warm. Generally good value for money considering what is included. Recommended if you want a quiet relaxing holiday."
