Mill Cottage is a hidden gem, set in a peaceful retreat in the heart of a conservation area. The cottage is just 50 yards off Bampton high street with its shops, restaurants and cosy pubs, yet come through the 5 bar gate and into the garden, and you will find yourself in a tranquil haven. The River Batherm runs down the side of the garden, and there are beautiful open views over the surrounding fields and hills.
Grade II listed, Mill Cottage has a lovely beamed sitting and dining area, and 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin). It is full of character and has been renovated in keeping with its 17th century origins. Fluffy towels and Egyptian cotton bed linen are provided, and guests have shared use of the grounds with the opportunity to fish from the riverbank. The owners live on-site with 3 dogs and a pair of cats.
Bampton offers really good village amenities, and is one of the gateways to Exmoor National Park with its stunning scenery, Exmoor ponies and red deer. The West Somerset and North Devon coastlines are an easy drive, as is access to the larger towns of Tiverton, Taunton and Exeter. Nearby are a number of National Trust properties, and within 5 miles, Wimbleball Lake offers fantastic walks and water sport activities. 1 friendly dog is welcome, to share the fully enclosed garden with the owners’ dogs.
