Single-storey former-village shop, with some attractive original features coupled with contemporary styling to create a wonderfully relaxing retreat for two in the Dorset village of Bourton.
With a warming wood burner, exposed brickwork and a private patio, this home is a wonderful destination for a rural, romantic retreat. Nestled in the pretty village of Bourton, 3 miles south of the National Trust’s Stourhead, find plenty to explore close to home and enjoy your peaceful location. Sleeping two, whisk your loved one or a friend away and arrive to a delicious welcome pack, a lovely way to be invited into your home from home and to start your holiday with a treat.
The snug open-plan living space is filled with light and character, making it perfect for spending time in after adventures. Fire up the wood burner to keep the chill at bay or open the patio doors for a refreshing breeze whilst you sit a while on the sofa in front of the Smart TV. Stepping over to the kitchen area you should find all you need to rustle up snacks, throw together picnics and to cook up a three-course feast for a romantic date night. Plate up at the table or head outside and dine alfresco on the pretty, private patio. When it’s time to rest your head and get under the covers, the king-size bedroom is a cosy space with a gorgeous bay window overlooking the front of the home. Rise and shine and enjoy an invigorating shower before heading out to explore both close to home and far and wide. There is ample roadside parking.
A 12-mile trip will take you to Longleat Safari Park where animal friends await and guests of any age will have a great day out. Close by, the National Trust owned Stourhead is well-worth a wander to see the Palladian house and gorgeous grounds. Its world-famous landscape garden is home to a lake, temples and grottoes for you to discover as you stroll the day away. Treat yourselves to a night off form the kitchen and enjoy a meal at the local pub where you can also enjoy a cold pint or two or a glass of bubbly.
