Pretty cottage ideal for enjoying a couple’s getaway, located in the village of Lower Odcombe in South Somerset, just 3.5 miles from the town of Yeovil and with easy access to the Jurassic Coast.

This property enjoys a lovely location in the small village of Lower Odcombe, with its welcoming village pub. The neighbouring village of Montacute, only a mile away, is home to the National Trust property Montacute House, a stunning Elizabethan manor house with a fascinating portrait gallery and impressive gardens. The town of Yeovil can be found just a short drive from the property, where visitors will find a good range of shops, as well as a choice of eateries. To the south of the property, around twenty miles away, is the seaside town of West Bay, with its sweeping beach made famous in the Broadchurch TV series, whilst the harbour town of Lyme Regis, famed for its Jurassic associations and fossil-rich coastline, is just a little further around the coast. Guests enter this pretty cottage through a stable door which brings them directly to the property’s kitchen, a modestly-sized yet well-equipped room with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and a dishwasher. This room leads onto the spacious open-plan lounge/diner, with its exposed beams and traditional inglenook fireplace, which now houses a cosy wood burner, for which logs are included. This double aspect room has a comfortable sofa from which to enjoy the TV/DVD, as well as a dining table seating two, which is perfect for enjoying romantic meals in the warming glow of the wood burner. Steep cottage-style stairs lead to the first floor of the property, where the bedroom is located: a welcoming and restful king-size room which features a beautiful example of an exposed hamstone wall. The en-suite bathroom adjacent to the bedroom has a shower-over-bath and WC. Outside, there is a well-maintained garden just across from the property, which is fully enclosed, mainly set to lawn with a shingle border, and offers garden furniture and a BBQ. There is parking available in the neighbouring pub car park, the landlords of which are the cottage’s owners.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Excellent for dog lovers. Great wood burner with ample supply of logs and the means to light them. Very comfortable lounge, bedroom and well equipped and easy to use kitchen. Good private garden available just a few yards from the cottage.

Perfect little cottage, well equipped and lots of little extras (robe, slippers, toiletries) to make it feel like a home from home. Close to the pub which is also owned by the cottage owners.

We have just spent 3 nights at Poppy Cottage and it exceeded our expectations. It is such a cosy little cottage. It has been tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the property.

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The perfect cottage and area for us and our rescue dog.

Very well equipped cottage and a perfect area for dogs. The pub is super and provides excellent food including breakfasts. Wonderful walks at Ham Hill country park with secure areas for dogs. The exercise area for dogs behind the pub is a real bonus. Would definitely go again.

This cottage is wonderful, the attention to detail is brilliant, there was nothing we didn't have and all to a very high standard but we felt comfortable letting our dogs treat it as home as well.
