Higher Horwood Farmhouse

Higher Horwood Farmhouse is a magnificent property standing within the owners' non-working farm on fabulous grounds, a couple of miles out into the beautiful countryside from the Somerset town of Wincanton. This handsome cottage has been completely renovated to an immaculate, quality standard with a unique artistic flair and style injected into its spacious and comfortable interior. Ideal for family celebrations, an opportunity to reunite with friends or family, or simply somewhere to relax in supreme comfort and explore the surrounding area. The cottage is approached along a sweeping private driveway where you can amply park your vehicle in the designated area provided. On entrance you will be immediately delighted by the amount of effort worked into the design and quality of the layout and furnishings. The sitting rooms boast open-fires and comfortable sofas dressed with beautiful patterned cushions, wonderful resting areas to relax the evening away. Head through to the bespoke open-plan kitchen which occupies a wonderfully appointed set-up, with stylish wooden worktops and ample storage space, tied together with brightly coloured, quirky house-hold accessories and crockery, elegantly stowed in a lovely shelving unit. The country-style dining table is a grand spot to get together for dinner. Take some time to enjoy the beautifully wild garden room positioned off from the kitchen; a flourish of plants cascade down the stone wall and trickle through the spacious interior flaunting a riot of colour, whilst the hand-painted tiles on the floor present intricate detailing and a thoughtful touch. This room provides access directly out to the garden, presenting uninterrupted landscape vistas. Upstairs the bedrooms are simply fabulous, each similarly laid out with stylish, rustic furniture, yet sporting different shades of colour. Just when you think this cottage couldn't get any better, the large bathroom is presented with such style and class, effortlessly enhanced by a charming vanity unit and beautiful Spanish tiles placed neatly behind the shower in a sage and pastel green hue. Lastly, the top floor boasts a wonderful master suite with a dressing area, an en-suite shower room and a stunning outlook over the rambling countryside encircling the farmhouse. If you can manage to tear yourselves away from this spectacular holiday let, discover the pleasantries of the surrounding area. Positioned close to the borders of Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, there is plenty of scope for day trips and family outtings to the Dorset coast. Wincanton racecourse and Stourhead Gardens are close by, whilst Glastonbury, Wells Cathedral and Clarks Village are within a 40 minute drive. This wonderful property is a perfect choice, providing a memorable stay for those seeking comfort and relaxation at its finest.
