Idler’s Cottage is a ham-stone studio-cottage that offers accommodation for up to 2 people. All the accommodation is laid-out over one level and has been decorated with taste and thought throughout. A private patio allows you to enjoy a spot of summertime dining while, in the winter months, storage heaters and a wood burning stove ensure that you can still enjoy all that the area has to offer. Although there is off-road parking for 1 car, the local shops and pubs are just a short walk from the front door. Idler’s Cottage is well placed as a base from which to seek out local attractions.

Crewkerne

South Petherton was once of great strategic importance on the Fosse Way. This compact little ham-stone town with its many small shops now has a quiet, unhurried charm. It has an old church with an octagonal central tower and the 14th Century manor house was restored in the 19th Century and nicknamed 'King Ina's Palace'. South Petherton stands where it stood a thousand years ago, taking its name from the nearby river Parrett and the Saxon word 'ton' for settlement. Modern day Petherton is a bustling, lively centre with many shops retaining their original Edwardian and Georgian fronts and providing services to the small outlying hamlets. The basis of the community has always traditionally been agriculture, interspersed by glove making, cider production and other cottage industries. Local attractions include the Margery Fish Garden in the East Lambrook Manor Gardens, the fossilised beaches of Lyme Regis and Charmouth and the Roman city of Bath.
