Property description

Old Priory Cottage is a charming house, hidden from the road in a walled garden. It's in a unique and a very special setting - just a few minutes' walk from the High Street in Dunster and a stone's throw from some of Dunster's historic buildings including St George's church, the Dovecote and the Tithe Barn. The property was built in the 12th century as a small Benedictine priory. The front door opens into the sitting-room with beams, window seat and Victorian log-burner in an open fireplace. A door leads to the farmhouse kitchen with a large open fireplace, wooden flooring and beams. There is an unusually large cottage stairway leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

Old Priory Cottage is totally self-contained but is attached to the main house. The property was built in the 12th century as a small Benedictine priory. The front door opens into the sitting-room with beams, window seat and Victorian log-burner in an open fireplace. A door leads to the farmhouse kitchen with a large open fireplace, wooden flooring and beams. There is an unusually large cottage stairway leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom. One bedroom has a double and single bed, so can be used as a double or twin bedroom, and the second bedroom is has two single beds. Please note, the maximum number of guests in this property is 4. Road parking is usually available but there is also off-road parking for one car in the open garage. Bicycles etc. can be stored, wet outdoor clothes dried in a small barn next to the cottage.

Other equipment includes cookware, toaster, kettle, a variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. A television with DVD player, CD player and radio are provided and wifi is available throughout the property. Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation.

A small amount of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits are provided to ensure you can have a hot drink as soon as you arrive. There may also be other non-perishable items like a salt, pepper and a few herbs or spices available. Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid will be present in the property.
