Around a mile from South Petherton in the smaller village of East Lambrook (pub, manor house gardens with snowdrop and national geranium collections, plant nursery, tea room and gallery), a neat, detached, red brick and hamstone cottage, thoughtfully converted from former stable buildings with big arched windows and beams remaining. Across the gravelled drive, the owners' charming 17th cent., Grade II listed, thatched hamstone farmhouse and beautifully planted, walled garden where you have a sitting-out area (table/chairs) and, a little further along the drive, use of an orchard for picnicking (picnic bench).     From drive (bench in sunny spot, occasional passing horses), 2 steps up to arched doors to smartly fitted oak kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, gas hob/electric oven) with slate floor, breakfast table/chairs and door to study/dining room. Oak-floored living room (TV/DVD) with lovely old Knole sofa, big arched windows/doors and stairs up to a roomy double bedroom (5' bedstead), nicely furnished with fine period fabrics, and very smart bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate shower). A stylishly done, comfortable base, well placed for numerous houses, gardens and churches of great interest. No children, except pre-crawling babies.

The West Country region

Somerset: is dairy cows in lush water-meadows, huge rolling cornfields, immense views, dark chocolate ploughed fields, luxuriant cottage gardens, orchards and the hedgerows alive with songbirds. To the north, the limestone Mendip Hills, splendid for walking, containing caves and Cheddar Gorge; and beautiful Bath with its natural hot springs, a city enjoyed by Jane Austen, steeped in Roman and Georgian history and still very culturally alive - a World Heritage Site. In Somerset's middle, the flatness of Sedgemoor (where Monmouth enticed the West Country's farmers to be slaughtered for him) with cattle at sunset as in a classical painting, villages on low hills. Nearby are Glastonbury with its tor and legends (and festival) and Wells with its tremendous cathedral. To the south is the Hamstone country - beautiful rolling farmland where almost every cottage is of golden stone, and every few miles are magnificent houses/gardens open to the public; at Yeovilton, the excellent Fleet Air Arm Museum (Concorde). In the Vale of Taunton, between Exmoor, the Quantocks and the Blackdown Hills, is some of the richest farmland in England, wonderfully unspoilt and peaceful.

And to the north-west, the 40 square miles of the beautiful Quantock Hills stretching from Taunton (county town) to the Bristol Channel sea and big sandcastling beaches. Wooded, heather-topped, home to red deer and loved by Wordsworth and Coleridge. Superb walks/rides, tremendous views, deep romantic valleys, pretty villages. Along the Quantocks' western foot chugs the steam railway from Bishop's Lydeard to Minehead. Few beautiful-country areas are so rich in interesting and splendid man-made things to see.

Crewkerne

South Petherton: biggish village (pubs, shops,

excellent deli/café, medieval church, mountain bike track)

in the heart of the 'Hamstone country'. Within 4 miles are

Montacute, Barrington Court, Tintinhull (beautiful

houses/gardens), East Lambrook (enchanting cottage garden),

Ham Hill (superb views, walks, Iron Age

fort). Easy access from A303/M5. Nearest coast (Bridport, Lyme Regis), 20 miles.
