An idyllic thatched cottage in Beautiful smiling Somerset providing the perfect spot for a vintage revival.
Step back in time to another era, where life was lived at a more leisurely pace, albeit with all the luxurious comforts modern day has to offer. Smell the English roses round the cottage door, peek out through the eyebrow windows under the traditional thatched roof, recline on a deckchair surrounded by cottage garden flowers and put your feet up in front of a roaring fire in the inglenook fireplace. All this awaits you at Lilac Cottage, a picture postcard Grade II listed hamstone cottage built over 400 years ago situated in arguably the most picturesque village in South Somerset, now available for luxury self-catering breaks.
The perfect base to explore all the West Country has to offer, Hinton-St-George is a stunning, peaceful village where you will feel you have stepped back in time yet a fantastic award-winning pub, pretty tearoom and well -stocked local shop are right on your doorstep. Enjoying the perfect location, you are mere miles away from the Dorset and Devon borders and access is easy, being a couple of miles from the main A303 road.
