About the Property

Newly converted, one bedroom, village setting, private, near Bath

The Little House is a converted dairy and is situated next to the farmhouse in the village of Mells, Somerset. It sleeps 2 adults +. The accommodation comprises a sitting room with dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, mezzanine, and off street parking.
The south facing sitting room looks out onto fields and has glass doors opening onto a private terrace with eating area. It has a TV with DVD player. The kitchen is fully fitted with a fridge, dishwasher, combination oven and microwave cooker and small appliances. The bedroom has a king-sized double bed, separate shower-room, and stairs leading to the mezzanine which could accommodate 1-2 children. (Please ask for details). The mezzanine has a desk and chair. The Little House has Wi-Fi.
The newly furnished house has a contemporary modern feel, whilst mixing the new with the old. The renovation, whilst maintaining the old features of the building, incorporates renewable energy to run under floor heatiang and hot water.



The Little House is situated in the village of Mells a largely unspoilt Somerset village built mainly of Bath stone. The village dates back to the 11th century, and is thought to be one of the prettiest in Somerset. It has a traditional pub (The Talbot Inn), a village shop & cafe, a church, and many historic buildings. These are all within walking distance of The Little House.

In the immediate area is the local market town, Frome which has markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Also close by is the historic city of Wells and its magnificent cathedral, hippie heaven Glastonbury, Street (famous for its shopping village), and Longleat House, garden and wildlife park. The Roman city of Bath is about 30 minutes and there is a very good park and ride scheme in operation. There is a lot to see in Bath - the Roman Baths, the Pump Rooms, the Assembly Rooms, the Costume Museum and the excellent shopping.
Further afield, Bristol is about one hours drive, the south coast and its lovely beaches and coastal villages is about 1-2 hours, and the cathedral city of Salisbury and the world heritage site of Stonehenge about one hour away. There is a good bus service in the village with buses every hour to Frome and Bath.
