Warm and welcoming, this pretty home stay is a perfect getaway for those seeking a laid back yet still luxurious retreat with everything on hand to make your stay as simple and relaxing as possible. With warm, muted colours throughout, stylish antiques abound here, and the quality is clear to see. Inspired by Delftware, you'll find antique pieces of Delft pottery throughout the property with interior design books on Delft on the coffee table. Part of the Compton Castle estate, this ravishing retreat is just perfect for exploring the unspoilt countryside around the Somerset/Dorset boarder whilst handily close to Bath if you're after a spot of city life.

The sitting room is just stunning with a pretty and bijoux wood burning stove and gorgeous antique grey velvet and wood antique chairs and sofa, accented with blue and grey cushions - just made for curling up on at the end of the day to watch the flickering fire. Complemented with grey finishing touches, inspired by the Swedish style of Hygge Living, snuggly warm rugs and candles, glorious lifestyle illustrated books with Swedish cook books to help you deeply relax, this is a chic, welcoming hideaway from the outside world.


To the far end of the living room you'll find the dining room with a pretty round dining table for six (perfect for special meals or maybe a board game or two!). French windows lead out into the garden so on summer nights you can let the warm flower-scented breeze waft through. The kitchen is a lovely space with a real country feel. With wooden floors throughout, a period dresser, additional country-style table and seating for eight, bespoke artisan and antique ceramics are displayed on huge shelves, grey Cornishware & pewter serving dishes add to the Hygge theme in the kitchen too. The shaker kitchen itself is beautifully equipped and has everything you will need to rustle up meals for your loved ones, from the Rangemaster oven and fully integrated appliances to the all-important Nespresso coffee machine and breakfast bar for snacks on the go or if you just want to watch the chef at work.


There are three lovely bedrooms upstairs to discover; the master en suite bedroom is a symphony in white and cream with an antique Victorian brass super-king size bed, whilst the second bedroom has a gorgeous antique French country king size bed. The third bedroom has twin antique dark wooden beds, very Downton Abbey and perfect for little ones. All three bedrooms have Yves Delorme cotton linens, Binkhaus bedding and gorgeous soft furnishings such as alpaca throws - the perfect setting for long sleeps and lazy lie ins. There is also a separate dressing room upstairs with full length hanging space, a sofa, and plenty of space to keep wedding attire safe and sound. You could tuck a travel cot in this room too.


The en suite to the master bedroom has a simple shower room with walk in shower whilst there's a family bathroom with bath and overhead shower. Both have heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

There's a large enclosed garden with plenty of lawn space for games on the lawn, whilst you can enjoy a spot of outside dining on the table, chairs and barbeque - perfect!


There is plenty of private parking in front of the cottage. Additionally, an oak framed double open garage is on the driveway to keep cars cool and dry.

Antiques and collectables

This stunning retreat is also home to a large collection of original, one-of-a-kind antiques including furniture, crystal, china and silverware. Whilst we know our guests always take the utmost care in our retreats, in the unlikely event that something gets broken, any breakages will need to be paid for – thank you.

This is an ideal location to stay for wedding guests of Cadbury Court and as you would expect for a countryside idyll, there are some fabulous places to eat and drink nearby, with The Kings Arms in Charlton Horethorne, The Queens Arms in Corton Denham and The Camelot in South Cadbury. The gorgeous town of Sherbourne is just seven miles away and home to all the amenities you need, plus a beautiful abbey and castle dating from 1594 built by Sir Walter Raleigh. There's a train station too if you're thinking of arriving by train for a complete break. A trip well encouraged is to the World Famous Hauser & With Gallery in Bruton, approximately 15 minutes' drive; enjoy al fresco dining there at The Roth Bar & Grill. Additionally, you're close to Glastonbury (make sure to visit the abbey and iconic Tor), the city of Wells, the natural wonders of Cheddar Gorge, the Wookey Hole Caves, the Mendip Hills, Cranbourne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Blackdown Hills. You're also only an hour from the Roman city of Bath.
