Dancing Hill

Big country cottage in Somerset with far reaching country views. Sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms; there’s a GAMES ROOM, HOT TUB and 4M SWIM SPA. 2 more guests at an additional charge per person. 2 cots at no extra charge.

Dancing Hill is a big holiday cottage sleeping 12 in rural Somerset; it has a very welcoming, homely feel and is full of cottagey character, with many original features.

You enter via a covered porch into the hallway; straight ahead is the kitchen, with all you need if you’re planning on cooking a big celebration dinner. You step down to the dining room, a huge space flooded with natural light from full height windows on two sides. There’s a fabulous aluminium dining table with leather studded chairs, typical of the eclectic interiors, plus soft seating, and a widescreen TV. Huge bi-fold doors open onto the patio and another door leads out to the covered veranda and enclosed garden. Off the dining room is a walk-in pantry and a quirky shower room.

To the right off the hall is Bedroom 6 and to the left is the sitting room; both overlook the front garden. The sitting room is warm and inviting, with fetching tartan sofas, an enamelled wood-burning stove (logs supplied), TV and books; in the floor is the interesting feature of a backlit working well.

The utility room can be accessed from the sitting room and from the back of the house; perfect for when you return from a muddy walk with wet coats and dogs. Next to it is the games room leading back through to the kitchen or out onto the veranda.

Upstairs is the heritage-style family bathroom and Bedrooms 1-5, all individually designed, and with the exception of Bedroom 4, all have zip and link beds that you can have arranged as superkings or twins. Bedroom 1 can sleep an additional person on a single sofa bed, and accessed from here and Bedroom 5 is an ante-room with amazing views over to the coast, and again a single sofa bed that can sleep an extra guest (note that extra beds carry an additional charge). Bedroom 1 has a lockable door through to Bedroom 2, so it’s a good set up for a family with young children.

There is a lawned front garden and ample parking, and at the back of the house, there’s a covered veranda, secure lawned garden, patio with outdoor seating and a BBQ (Easter-Oct), and then steps lead down to the hot tub and 4m swim spa. Beyond this are the lawns and paddock; all is surrounded by fields and open farmland with far reaching views. Beautiful.
