Description from owner
Walnut Cottage is located on a quiet country lane at the edge of the pretty Somerset village of Barton St David. This detached Victorian cottage is set in an acre of secluded garden which is perfect for families or couples seeking a quiet country getaway.
The cottage was completely renovated in 2010, and it has been beautifully maintained since with fresh paint every year. The main floor has under floor heating which creates a wonderful, cosy ambient heat. The peacefulness and quiet of Walnut Cottage surrounds you the moment you walk through the door. Whether you want to enjoy the picturesque orchards and farm lands of the West Country or visit the local historic towns and villages, Walnut Cottage is ideally located to suit every taste.
The Property Managers of Walnut Cottage live next door, and they are available to respond to any queries, deal with any problems which arise with the property and ensure guests experience a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Further details indoors
Walnut Cottage has a farmhouse style kitchen, which is fully equipped and has plenty of counter space for guests who enjoy cooking. It includes a six burner Rangemaster stove, integrated fridge and dishwasher plus a full range of kitchen utensils and appliances. There is a second American style fridge freezer in the utility room off the kitchen, along with the washing machine and tumble dryer.
The living room is very spacious and includes a well stocked library and a supply of board games to suit all tastes and ages. There is a 40 inch flat screen TV and DVD player, with a selection of movies available as well as Digital/Freeview. Logs are provided for the high efficiency wood burner, which is set into the original inglenook stone fireplace to create a truly cosy country feel. The wood burner heats the room, but it is really more for effect since there is full central heating and under floor heating throughout the main floor of the cottage.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the master bedroom has a super king size bed, the second bedroom has a king size bed plus a flat screen TV and DVD player. The third bedroom has two single beds, and is suitable for adults or children. We can supply a travel cot for babies which fits easily into the master bedroom. Each of the beds has feather pillows, superior down duvets and high quality pocket spring orthopedic mattresses. There are oak floors throughout the upstairs, which perfectly compliment the original exposed beams of the cottage. All three bedrooms have sunny south facing views over the extensive garden which is completely private.
The main bathroom of the cottage is upstairs and it includes a large, walk in shower, a separate double ended bathtub and an oversize heated towel rail. There is a contemporary styled second bathroom on the main floor of the cottage, which also includes a generous walk in shower.
Children of all ages are welcomed at Walnut Cottage and the following items are provided free of charge: toys and books suitable for children aged 5 and under, a travel cot with bedding, baby monitor, bed guards for the single beds, high chair and two Captains chairs suitable for children who no longer require a high chair but need to be raised to reach the dining table (age 2 and up).
Further details outdoors
Walnut Cottage faces due south and is exceptionally sunny, being located in one of the sunniest parts of Britain. The cottage is set in over an acre of typical English garden which is mostly lawn with mature trees and flower beds. It is surrounded by fields, orchards and farm land on a quiet country lane which is a dead end, meaning it has virtually no traffic except tractors heading to the fields at the end of the lane. There are views of the countryside all around and especially stunning are the views of Glastonbury Tor, which is easily seen from the neighbouring fields.
The Somerset countryside is generously interspersed with well marked Public Footpaths, the closest of which runs along the far end of the property.
There is a large patio area outside the kitchen door. A barbecue and outdoor furniture is provided and guests have enjoyed sitting outside from April to October and beyond as the front of the cottage is sun trap. The fields close by the cottage are home to chickens, sheep, cows, horses and a friendly donkey. There is an abundance of local wildlife around, including foxes, rabbits, deer and badgers which can often be seen, especially in the early mornings or evenings.

“Lovely Clean House, Great Garden, Helpful Owners and Good Location”
We booked for a weeks stay in March, however given the issues in the world we could only stay for a few days (we chose to come home early). It was a lovely house with excellent hosts. We had a few good days of weather to enjoy the lovely garden with the children and the location is great for visiting local attractions. We will definitely book this house for a holiday again as it really was perfect for a nice family holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children. The children loved the garden.Although the weather wasn't good, we … More

“Lovely house with large garden in rural Somerset”
Stayed for 9 nights in July with our 2 boys aged 11 and 8, albeit the house could comfortably accomodate 6 people. Very comfortable, spacious property in which we wanted for nothing, with a large well-kept garden that was an ideal playground for our boys to run off some steam (with the added benefit of a large playhouse and swing). The owners live next door and were very welcoming and on-hand if we needed anything, but left us to our privacy otherwise. Lots to do in the area if you're happy to drive 15 or more minutes to get there. We can recommend Glastonbury, Longleat Safari Park, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes Motor Museum and a visit to Chedaar Gorge. Along with spending some time just relaxing at Walnut Cottage. Highly recommended, would definitely book again.
