A recently converted two bedroom cottage set on 260 acres of organic farmland in Somerset. Cosy and stylish interiors, stunning rural views, walking distance to an excellent pub, and under 30 minutes from the World Heritage Jurassic coastline and beaches. It’s an idyllic spot.
Candlestick Cottage is over 200 years old and is perfectly placed in the rolling organic hills to maximise the fabulous rural views and the sunsets. It has been beautifully converted; from its whitewashed exterior to the sumptuous soft furnishings and the roll top bath tub. What’s more, there’s an onsite woodland sauna and walking trails which take you straight to the door of an award winning gastro pub.
If you can drag yourself away from your ultimate relaxation at the cottage, there are lots of things to do and see in the surrounding area. Archery (2 mins), Horseriding Stables (4 mins), Coarse Fishing, (5 mins), Polo (10 mins), Electric bike tours, rib rides, dolphin watching and fishing trips at West Bay (30 mins) , golf (5 mins), paintballing (30 mins), spa at Corscombe (15 mins), cookery classes at Abbots Hill (25 mins). The town of Crewkerne is 2 miles from the cottage and has a good range of shops and supermarkets, as well as a train station with a direct link to London Waterloo. The pretty village of Hinton St George is 1.5 miles away and has an excellent village shop and an award winning gasto pub, as well as a tearoom. The cottage is just 30 minutes from the town of Lyme Regis, where you can go fossil hunting, visit the microbrewery, or browse the many boutiques and second hand shops.
The farm is located just off the A30 and A303 and it takes an hour and a half by road to Bristol and Bath and less than an hour to Exeter, where there is an international airport. There are direct trains from London Waterloo, Salisbury and Exeter to Crewkerne station, which is only a 5 minute taxi ride away.

The cottage has a large south facing garden and patio with BBQ and fire pit. There is parking for two cars. There is a woodland sauna a short walk from the cottage. There is a glorious hillside hot tub (available from 1st November 2019) available to guests of all the cottages, where you can book a private timeslot and settle back with a glass of something cold to enjoy the views.
There are a few other cottages on the farm, and a collection of yurts and shepherd's huts. The farm has its very own medieval castle site - Castle Hill - which has 360 degree views across the Somerset countryside. Castle Hill was featured in Time Team 2011 - the dig revealed the footing for the tower, as well as pots, tools and trinkets from everyday life in the 1200s.
