Overview

About the property

Sock Cottage enjoys a unique and romantic setting, ideal for couples and good friends seeking comfort and tranquility. Sock Farm and cottage are surrounded by hill fields and wooded areas all of which are available for guests to explore and enjoy. Despite its quiet and secluded position Sock Farm is close to the main routes from London to the West Country. An ideal location to break a journey to Devon or Cornwall or to access the many attractions in Somerset and Dorset. Close by there are some wonderful gastro-pubs and restaurants to sample, National Trust properties and gardens to wander and beautiful towns and cities to explore. You will find the cottage, a converted dairy attached to the listed farmhouse, warm, clean and ready for you to enjoy. Down quilts and crisp white sheets on the wonderfully comfortable super-king bed (can be prepared as two singles). Soaps, thick fluffy bath sheets and a vaulted ceiling in the en-suite shower room! The small kitchen contains all the essentials including a delicious next morning breakfast of local farm produce to welcome your arrival. You do not need to stop to shop on your way!

Excellent cottage to stay in for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage annexed to the main farmhouse, developed to a high standard, well designed, very clean and comfortable. Set in a quiet, peaceful location. Well equipped kitchen, very comfortable large double bed, great wet room and comfortable settee and chairs in lounge area. Sarah and Andy gave us a lovely welcome and we were very grateful to have local produce supplied – sausages, bacon, delicious bread, egg, milk, tomatoes and mushrooms and other things – all much appreciated. Good pubs and restaurants not far away. There are a number of National Trust properties around the area and we visited Montacute House and Tintinhull gardens. We also visited the Fleet Air Arms Museum which was well worth a visit. All in all an excellent place to stay.

17/08/2017 Sooooooo relaxing we were in heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to recharge batteries and just take a well earned break from the hustle and bustle of "Life"

Sarah and Andy are great hosts, they are friendly without being intrusive, nothing was too much trouble and the extras they give buy simply just being themselves is very refreshing, we had come from a hectic bus tour to the slice of heaven in Yeovil, it feels like you are deep in the country but in reality its just a quick pretty drive to the main shops if that's what you want. Sock Cottage was exactly as I imagined, it felt like stepping into a house and garden lay out in the nicest way possible, the design, layout and furnishings were so well done, the shower to die for......... very high standard of finishing so the chilling out was easy.

Andy sent us off one day to Durdle Door - Lulworth what a sight. We will come back in a couple of years we are from NZ so need to save save save to get back to the UK

Thank you Sarah and Andy two of the nicest people in the world.

Pure Farmhouse Charm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sarah and Andy's place. We were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and welcoming conversation. The guest cottage is new and fresh and decorated with darling farmhouse style, and furnished with modern appliances and plumbing fixtures. Sarah laid out so many nice things to meet all your needs, like the usual shampoos and soaps, but also cotton balls, toothpaste, a loofa, and more, in the bathroom. And she provided farm fresh eggs, veggies, breakfast meats, milk, cereal, butter, coffee, tea, jams, and more in the fully stocked kitchen. We were able to take walks across the pasture and look at the beautiful view across the countryside, play with the yellow lab who loves to fetch, and pick apples from the apple tree. The place is out in the country, but there are many small picturesque villages nearby to explore and have dinner in. And you should schedule some extra time on your drive from London to stop at Stonehenge along the way, or just view it from the road as you drive by!

Angleterre authentique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine.

La maison est très confortable, chaque détail a été pensé pour la rendre douillette et cosy. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la qualité des matériaux et la décoration sobre et chaleureuse. Nous pouvons dire que dans cette maison il ne manquait rien!

La situation est parfaite pour rayonner dans une région vraiment magnifique où il y a des tas de lieux,jardins,châteaux et paysages à découvrir.

Mais nous tenons vraiment a relever la qualité de l'accueil de Sarah, qui a été une hôtesse attentive et chaleureuse.
