About Bridge Cottage

Bridge Cottage lets you enjoy village life in Somerset like a local. The beautiful late Victorian house was built in 1883, which is almost considered modern in a village listed in the Domesday Book! There is space for four guests in two bedrooms plus a baby/toddler up to two years old, so it is ideal for couples or families. Children welcomed. Bridge Cottage is in the middle of the pretty village of Marston Magna, and is set back from a quiet road and has a private garden and is very peaceful. The popular Marston Inn pub is a 10-minute stroll past the village hall and church, and there are some wonderful countryside walks leading from the front door.

Marston Magna is only five miles north of the vibrant market town of Yeovil. Here, there is a choice of supermarkets, as well as two train stations, great pubs and restaurants and shops. There is a market held every Tuesday and Friday where you can buy fresh and delicious local produce. Sherborne is another market town that is five miles from Bridge Cottage. Sherborne has two castles - one a picturesque ruin and the other the beautifully restored home of Sir Walter Raleigh, and an impressive Abbey.

Local attractions include Fleet Air Museum and the Haynes International Motor Museum, both ideal for adults and children. There are some wonderful National Trust properties nearby including the Treasurer’s House in Martock, Barrington Court and Montacute House. Half an hour north of Bridge Cottage, is Glastonbury Tor. This iconic landmark offers magnificent views of the Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales.

Somerset is a wonderful choice for a holiday. You can get a sense of escaping from the rat race, yet because of its excellent transport links, it is very easy to reach either by road or train. Bridge Cottage is at the heart of Somerset’s lush, green countryside and, with its comfortable interior and lovely views, is a perfect choice whether you want a short break or a longer holiday.

Location (Somerset)

Bridge Cottage has a traditional layout, with the living area downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. It is a period cottage and retains characteristics typical of a house of this age, including exposed beams and thick walls.

Accommodation Comprises:

Ground Floor:

  • The fresh, bright kitchen/dining room is warm and welcoming and as much a place to relax and enjoy each other's company as it is for cooking. The fitted units provide ample storage, and there is a good variety of pots, pans and cooking utensils, as well as plates and cutlery. In addition to the electric hob and oven, there is a microwave, toaster and kettle.
  • A country pine dining table also provides extra space for preparing, and the owners are happy to provide a highchair on request.
  • There is a washing machine, an iron, ironing board and an indoor clothes airer, with a rotary clothes line outside.
  • The attractive living room has a comfortable sofa/chairs with space for four adults, 32” flat screen television with DVD player, and a variety of games, toys and books for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • A spacious shower room includes a large shower cubicle, handbasin, heated towel rail, WC and bidet.

First Floor:

  • The master bedroom has a king sized bed, built in wardrobe with full length mirrored doors, sofa, bedside tables and reading lights. It has nice views over the garden and the fields beyond.
  • The twin bedroom is tastefully decorated with two full-sized single beds, bedside tables and reading lights, and a built-in wardrobe with large mirror. A travel cot provided (including bedding/linen) can be put in either bedroom.

Outside: The large south-facing garden is private and enclosed with mature shrubs, climbing plants and a patio area with garden table and chairs for alfresco meals. A glass lean-to lets you make the most of the pretty garden even on damp days. A summer house acts as a fun games room with a pool table as well as table football and a selection of games. There is secure storage for bikes, golf clubs and other equipment. There is off street parking for two cars.

Additional Information: Bridge Cottage has fully double glazed windows, with night storage/convectors heaters in all rooms. All utilities, linen, duvets, pillows, towels and tea towels are included. The owners can provide a travel cot, highchair and stair gates if required. Short breaks are possible out of busy season depending on availability. Free WI-FI throughout.
