SWALLOWS AGENCY are delighted to offer this charming two bedroom character cottage in the heart of the popular market town of Castle Cary.

Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful un-spoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques within the Conservation Area. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Shaftesbury, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by and Salisbury, Taunton, Bath and Bristol are in easy driving distance.

The newly opened 'The Newt in Somerset' just outside Castle Cary is home to beautiful countryside walks set in the grounds of a Georgian country estate. Within the estate are a Hotel & Spa, Farm shop, restaurants and house & garden shop.

On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a few miles south.

The cottage has plenty of period features throughout and accommodation including a sitting room, kitchen breakfast room, boot room, cloakroom, two double bedrooms and a shower room.

The sitting room has lovely exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and a decorative brick fireplace in the heart of the room (not working).

The kitchen is at the back of the property and has space for a breakfast table, as well as fitted units, utility area, granite effect worktops, integrated fridge freezer and an electric oven with gas hob and extractor above. A door leads out to the garden from the kitchen. Also off the kitchen is a boot room with steps leading up to a cloakroom at the far end.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both with their own built in wardrobes and feature fireplaces. Currently, both bedrooms are serviced by the shower room which is well appointed, having a shower, basin, w/c and heated towel rail.

At the front there is unallocated on street parking and to the rear is an enclosed rear garden. The garden is walled on three sides with a seating terrace at the top. There is a path leading up to the terrace and on the right hand side is a deep flower border, full with a variety of flowers.

Available beginning of July for a minimum 12 months' tenancy.
