My cosy, inviting cottage is the perfect base for a West Country break, with lovely walks straight from the door, and easy access to Bath (20 mins by car) and Stonehenge (45 mins). The picturesque village has two great pubs and a popular deli cafe.

The space
My house is in the conservation area of a picture-postcard Somerset village, and, with its winding staircase, wooden beams and exposed floor boards, is a real step back in time - but with all mod cons, including wi-fi! The guest room, on the second floor, can accommodate up to two people. It is very light and warm - the prettiest room in the house. There is a small, flower-filled courtyard off the kitchen, where breakfast can be served on warm summer mornings - otherwise, it will be in the bright and welcoming kitchen/dining room. Breakfast is continental, including home-made jams, croissants and cereals, or cooked, by prior arrangement. Happy also to cater for any special dietary requirements, by arrangement.

Guest access
Guests have access to the kitchen/dining room and, if they wish, can prepare their own meals for a small additional charge of £5 per meal. The washing machine can also be used at a small extra cost. The bathroom is shared and has a large, comfortable bath and a good shower.

Other things to note
For cyclists, bikes can be left safely in the hallway.

Location

Beckington, England, United Kingdom

My cottage is the perfect base for a West Country break. It's within an easy drive to the Georgian city of Bath, to Stonehenge, Glastonbury, and to local attractions such as Longleat House and Safari Park and Stourhead. Local towns include Frome, just five or six minutes away, with its arty, bohemian atmosphere, cafes, vintage shops, and regular markets for everything from antiques to local produce. There are wonderful countryside walks both directly from the village, and beyond - with walking guides to borrow from the owner. There are lots of excellent local restaurants (again, plenty of ideas available from the owner), while in the village itself, there are two pubs and a very popular cafe, plus an award-winning farm shop.

I'm a freelance writer - journalist and poet - basing much of my work on the beautiful countryside around me. I moved to Beckington seven years ago so that I had a base in the countryside - while also having really easy access to places such as Bath and Salisbury. I look forward to welcoming you to my home.

During your stay
It's lovely to chat with my guests, but I also realise that sometimes you want 'you' time - so I'm happy either way.
