About this listing
Chill out in our gorgeous private one bedroom annexe, with its own huge living room looking over gorgeous gardens, great separate kitchen, lovely new shower room and your own private sauna! Play tennis or sit under the stars by the firepit at this rural retreat!
Set on the edge of a lovely hamlet, surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, you will find the Annexe at Monk's Dairy House the perfect, tranquil retreat from your hectic schedule, or a place to stay while going to a wedding or visiting local friends, or maybe working in the area during the week; with plenty to do when you feel like heading out. A very comfy bed and great shower, fully-kitted out kitchen, great private sauna and cosy woodburner in the large living space, not to mention use of our tennis court in the garden. Take a walk or cycle ride on the surrounding Somerset Levels for an awe-inspiring breath of fresh air, hit the local markets and local food stores in Langport and Ilminster, or head up to Burrow Hill for some authentic local cider (fit for Glastonbury) or Brown and Forrest for some locally-smoked fish and cheese, then cook up a feast. Head out to Lyme Regis for a wind-swept romantic walk on the Cobb (just 40 mins away) or have a gourmet meal at Langford Manor, just up the lane. There's often live music in the evenings at the local pubs and festivals throughout the summer, plus lots of local artists and pottery studios to visit, as well as Barrington and Monatcute Houses, two of the settings for the BBC's recent dramatisation of Wolf Hall. All in all you cannot help but have a relaxing break in our wonderful rural retreat. We are here to offer you advice and give you tips to make the most of your stay with us. Come and learn how to live the Somerset way - the most chilled, creative, beautiful place to live in the UK! The owners are a professional novelist and photographer and can give private lessons on request!
The annexe has its own private entrance accessed from the lovely back garden of the house. The annexe looks over a large deck and onto the wider gardens, with a firepit, tennis court and lots of space to relax in.
Interaction with guests
We will generally be in on hand to answer any questions as we live in the house adjoining the annexe. Your privacy, however, is paramount and we will not disturb you unless you ask! We can however, point you in the direction of many local delights - and even escort you if required!
Other things to note
We have two biddable dogs, a spaniel and a labrador, who are always keen for a walk. They do wander freely in the garden and are very good natured!
We live in a rural hamlet and do not expect our guests to play extremely loud music or be too raucous after 11pm.
