Stone Cottage is a pretty little cottage nestling off the main street, in the heart of Milverton. This cottage is all about comfort. Perfect for a romantic getaway, it has been sympathetically renovated and is beautifully and carefully equipped to a very high standard. The layout is unusual with just four rooms (kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom) each on a different level. This means that you are never more than 6 steps away from the bathroom whether you’re in the living room, or the bedroom! It is equipped with gas central heating, a wood-burning stove in the living room and under-floor heating in the bathroom. Wi-fi is available throughout the property.
Stripped pine floors, original red brick fireplace with wood burner, extremely comfortable Sofa Workshop settee with feather cushions, dining table and chairs. There is a large flat-screen TV, with freesat and a DVD player. The large south-facing window overlooks the garden.

Milverton is steeped in history; most of the village is encompassed in a conservation area, and many of the houses are listed. The atmosphere in the main streets is reminiscent of a Jane Austin novel. And if you are foodies, you couldn’t be better placed. There is an excellent village shop which sells high class local meat, organic veg, fresh fish, high quality frozen meals from the ‘Cooks’ range and even 13 amp fuses. It’s also an off-licence.
Don’t want to cook? The Globe is just 150 yards down the road – a superb local pub which serves award winning food and local beers.
In addition there is a local post office and a hairdresser.
Wiveliscombe is about 4 miles away and boasts several privately owned shops selling quality local produce as well as an old fashioned hardware shop. The Old Court House, a Grade II listed building, forms a stunning setting for morning coffee or afternoon tea, surrounded by galleries festooned with Persian carpets, stunning fabrics and an eclectic mix of furniture, jewellery, handbags and gifts.
Wellington is the next largest town, about 8 miles away. It has a growing reputation as a ‘food town’ with several specialist shops selling local and organic produce, and three supermarkets, including a Waitrose.
Less than 10 miles driving from Exmoor National Park in one direction and the Quantock Hills in the other. Marvellous walks in all directions, all the way to the north Somerset coast, and you’ll often find there’s a good pint of beer to be had at one of the local pubs en route.
