Nestled in the heart of Batcombe, our recently renovated coach house offers a comfortable place to stay. This picturesque village offers fantastic walks across the mendip hills & great local pub.
Weekend bookings must be a minimum of 2-nights.
Little Brook is a recently renovated 18th century coach house and stable. It is a detached property situated in the quiet, west end of the village.
Upstairs is the large master bedroom with king-size double bed and ensuite shower room. Downstairs is a spacious twin bedroom, (which can be made up as a double bed). There is also a separate bathroom downstairs. The beds are very comfortable, with white cotton bed linen, and feather bedding and pillows. Cotton towels are also provided. An additional 1-2 guests can be accommodated on a sofa-bed by arrangement and for a fee.
Little Brook is a self-catering rental, and the kitchen is equipped with fridge-freezer, electric hob, electric ovens, microwave, and dishwasher. A washer/dryer means that you can keep on top of clothes' washing too. Hot water is available 24/7, and central heating is available throughout the property.
There is wifi and a landline. (Calls on landline are charged on an 'honesty' basis.) Multi channel Sky TV HD and DVD are accessible on the 32" wide screen HD TV in the sitting room. There is also a stereo + iPod lead. In addition, the master bedroom features a freesat TV and DVD.
There is also a secluded, walled patio with 6-seater picnic table and a bench, which is for guests' private use.
As a self-catering operation we are more than happy to help set you up with some basic provisions for when you arrive, a basket of eggs, bread and other delicious local produce can be provided so feel free to drop us a line to discuss.
Alternatively, if you don't feel like cooking, the village pub, (which is child and dog-friendly), serves fine ales, wines and great food every day of the week, and it's just down the lane.
The weekly rates are for the whole cottage, but there will still be the cleaning fee .
If you are interested please let me know and I will send it as a special offer.
DOGs- are welcome but there is a charge of £25 p. dog, p. week, or £40 for x2 dogs. Otherwise it's £5 p. dog p. night. We tend to limit dogs to x2 maximum.
Please keep dogs off the furniture, clean up after them and provide them with their own beds and other doggy-kit, plus a towel to dry them off after a wet walk.
There is ample parking for two cars outside the property on the street side, but accommodation for others can be found along the lane or, by arrangement, in our forecourt.
Interaction with guests
We always love meeting guests, but respect the fact that you may be looking for a quiet escape. If you're planning an extended stay then we can make arrangements for clean linen and a cleaner as necessary.
If babysitting is required, we can also introduce you to some friendly locals, but it's a good idea to give as much notice as possible. Also if you do have little ones, then we are happy to provide toys, games, books, DVD's etc.
We tend to limit the number of dogs to a maximum of two, but we're open to discussion. There is also a charge of £25 p. dog, p. week, or £40 for x2 dogs. Otherwise it's £5 p. dog p. night.
Please note our rates are more during the holidays, Easter, Christmas, New Year and Glastonbury (which is 20 min away)
Other things to note
Some people want to come and escape, others to explore.
As mentioned, the local town, Bruton, is only 3 miles away - If you're a 'foodie' then there's the acclaimed At The Chapel, which is child-friendly and in addition to more sophisticated fare, their home-fired pizzas and bakery are second to none. Also Matt's Kitchen might only be a small venue, run from his own house, but it's well worth a visit. It's a limited but highly imaginative menu that's sourced from local suppliers and markets - Matt never fails to amaze his guests, and you can bring your own bottle(s). As with At The Chapel, booking is advised.
If you're a 'culture-vulture' then Hauser & Wirth seem to have the art world buzzing with their recently opened, Bruton-based, world class gallery and multi purpose arts centre and gardens. Meanwhile Bruton's high street is amok with quirky antique & interiors shops.
Other local attractions include The Mill on the Brue activity centre, Longleat Safari Park, Stourhead House and Gardens, Stonehenge, Glastonbury Tor and Festival, The Bath & West Showground, Wookey Hole Caves & Cheddar Gorge.
Slightly further afield lie Bristol and Bath, and to the south is the wonderful Jurassic coastline and Chesil beach.
Please respect the community, leave the place as you find it, enjoy yourselves and have fun. If you happen to have an accident or breakage - let's face it, they happen - but just let us know so we can sort it out.
There is a no smoking policy in the property.
Generally speaking, check-in times are about 3pm and check-out's are about 11am, but pending availability we can be reasonably flexible and will always try and fit in with your schedule.
Dogs are welcome but we ask that you try and keep them off the furniture and clean up after them. Please provide them with their own beds and it's not a bad idea to bring a towel so that you can dry them off after a wet walk.
Any queries, please feel free to drop us a line.
