Settle in for a tranquil slice of country life in this very comfortable, courtyard conversion with its views over tree-lined lawns to woodland spiked by the village church tower and Corton Hill. You’ve your own small, sheltered garden and are welcome to wander the wider manor grounds, Robin’s great passion; admire the billowing herbaceous borders, the prolific vegetable garden, rare trees, orchards and lake.
You’ll find fresh produce from the walled garden on the next-door, award-winning, Queens Arms’ menu, and good food and markets in nearby Sherborne, Bruton and Castle Carey. The walk via Corton Hill and Corton Ridge to Cadbury Castle is a treat, so is a day or two on the local long-distance paths.
Rambling summer roses; cosy evenings by the wood-burner; gorgeous gardens and stately homes to visit: a quintessentially English retreat.
