Description

BLUEBELL COTTAGE. Just the place to get away and relax. In an elevated position and at the end of a long drive there is no passing traffic and the quietness is remarkable. Formerly a derelict concrete-block stable it has been rebuilt with local natural hamstone and stable-style doors with comfort and convenience as priorities. The king-size bedroom with TV is cosy and relaxing, the bathroom has both bath and shower cubicle, the kitchen-diner is fully equipped whilst the lounge has TV and patio doors. Oil-fired under-floor central heating throughout ensures warmth year-round and an electric fire in the lounge can be used if necessary and provides a cosy glow. Outside a small patio area has seating and overlooks open countryside. There is plenty of space to park and guests are welcome to wander around the site.

HONEYWOOD. Once a cart-horse stable for Montacute House, the property has been converted over the past 25 years by the owners, Roland and Marlene, to furnish an unusual residence in a wonderful location. Christmas Trees, bee-keeping, and logs are the occupations undertaken on this six-acre smallholding.

SURROUNDING AREA. The immediate location is dominated by Ham Hill, an ancient iron-age hill-fort, now a country park with 120 acres of open access and the Prince of Wales pub. Nestled around the hill are villages, including Odcombe, all with churches, most with pubs and some with shops. One of these villages, Montacute, is home to the National Trust’s Montacute House, a stately home with gardens, grounds and park. Somerset and Dorset are laced with footpaths, trackways, bridle-paths and green lanes. At the end of the driveway you can join the Pitt Lane bridleway and from there walk to your hearts content.

YEOVIL. The outskirts of Yeovil are 2 miles away where Asda, Palmers Garden Centre, café and fish-and-chip restaurant are located as well as KFC, Subway and other stores on a small trading estate. The centre of Yeovil is 4 miles away and provides the full range of facilities of a market town, including a golf-club, theatre and swimming pool, as well as open areas such as Nine-Springs Country Park.

SOUTH SOMERSET. Meandering through the lanes and villages is a good antidote to stress! There are gardens, stately homes and tourist attractions such as the Naval Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. Discoversouthsomerset.com and visitsomerset.co.uk can provide full details of events and activities.

WEST COUNTRY. One of the beauties of this location is that it is central to Dorset, Somerset and parts of Devon and Hampshire, all within comfortable day-trip undertaking. The villages and countryside of West Dorset, the Jurassic Coast with seaside destinations such as Weymouth and Lyme Regis, and attractive towns such as Dorchester provide a wide choice. Cranborne Chase, Marshwood Vale and the AONB around Beaminster have distinct and impressive scenery. To the north Minehead, Quantoxhead, Weston-super-Mare and Burnham give a different seaside experience and Cheddar, Wookey Hole and the Mendips are absorbing. Wells, with it’s cathedral, the Somerset Levels, and Glastonbury will not fail to impress the visitor. Not far away are Exmoor and Dartmoor and a day in Exeter is very rewarding – you can travel there by train – or go in the opposite direction to Salisbury.

So whether you want to put your feet up and read a book, wear out a pair of walking shoes, or tour the around the West Country, Bluebell Cottage is the place for your holiday!

A comfortable stay in a beautiful location

By Danny Paine-Winnett on 22-Oct-2021

Bluebell Cottage is quite simply stunning. A quiet rural location with walks from the front door or on nearby Ham Hill, it is accessible to Yeovil, Sherborne, the various towns along the A303 and A30, and the Jurassic Coast is about 40 minutes away - a great spot to explore East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset. The cottage was exceptionally clean, and very well equipped - a suggestion book of improvements based on guests experiences has helped develop the things provided that guests might need. We really enjoyed watching a variety of birds visiting each morning, from blue tits and sparrows, to magpies and a great spotted woodpecker.

Great place to stay in a quiet location.

By KEN CHARMAN on 15-Oct-2021

Bluebell Cottage is a gem waiting to be found. It is in a very quiet location, with lovely views. The owners live next door and are on hand if you have any problems or will leave you alone if that is what you prefer. The cottage itself is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. The bed is so comfy that once you get in it you will not want to get out. The welcome pack you receive on arrival is also very special. All in all i cannot recommend Bluebell Cottage enough, You have to stay yourself to appreciate it.

another visit to Bluebell Cottage

By Kay Mantripp on 01-Oct-2021

As usual had a great time here well looked after by Roland and although we had a long power cut we spent the time watching bats flying around at dusk and star gazing when it got dark and even saw a meteor go by. Nice welcome pack very useful. Thanks again Roland.
