About Little Cheriton House
Little Cheriton House is a Georgian manor with the most pleasing of proportions, like the most perfect of dolls’ houses. The house is in mid-Somerset, and ideal for house parties of families and friends.
The house sleeps up to 16 guests in 7 bedrooms as standard. There’s an option of two additional pull-out beds in the attic room to take the total up to 18. There are four double bedrooms (one emperor bed, and three king-sized beds) and one twin bedroom on the first floor, which shares three bathrooms. There are a further two bedrooms in the eaves of the house, which have three single beds in each, and share two bathrooms.
Downstairs, there is a large open-plan kitchen with an Aga, and a breakfast table for eight, set in front of the windows. The kitchen leads into a light-filled drawing room, which has an open fire and lots of squashy velvet sofas. The dining room is beyond the hall, and easily sits up to 18 guests.
The house is surrounded by grass lawns, and each window offers a view of Somerset countryside. There is a sunken garden for sheltered sun bathing, a hot tub and a huge terrace, for alfresco dining.
Should you have an extra two guests, or would like somewhere extra special for two of your guests to stay, there is an extraordinary tree house over the fields (booked separately). It’s built around an English oak tree, and has a wood-burning stove and a copper-lined slipper bath set in front of one of its windows.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“This house is immaculately presented, with lots of little details considered (like the capacious wine fridge). A beautiful house, for the best of country weekends.”
About the Location
Little Cheriton House is at the end of a country lane, beyond the village of North Cheriton. The market town of Wincanton is about 10 minutes’ drive away. For guests travelling from London or further afield, there is a main-line train service running from nearby Templecombe (about 5 minutes’ taxi drive from the house).
Things To Do
There are plenty of ravishing Somerset villages within easy reach, most of which have great circular walks beginning and ending with a pub. The town of Bruton, famous for its food scene, is 15 minutes’ drive away, and includes ‘The Newt’, a hotel and country estate that welcomes day vistors to its gardens and restaurants.
For a day out, Longleat is just 40 minutes away, or even closer to Little Cheriton are the Fleet Air Arm Museum or Haynes Motor Museum. Glastonbury is just over half an hour’s drive away.
