Atherstone Farm Cottage is a beautiful and newly refurbished two bed thatched cottage in the tiny hamlet of Atherstone in Somerset, two miles from Ilminster.
Both bedrooms are ensuite, one with a bath and shower, the other a walk-in wetroom & shower. The property also has an eat-in kitchen, with a separate utility room, and a large stone-floored living and dining room.
The cottage is part of an old, but now largely disused, grade II listed farm courtyard that has been part of the Dillington Estate since at least 1725. With a stone floor, ancient beams and thatched roof it's the picture of a romantic country cottage, but now updated with a modern kitchen, bathrooms and entertainment system.

Atherstone is a short way from the villages of Stocklinch and Whitelackington, and a beautiful 45min walk from the Barrington Boar pub in Barrington, or Duke of York pub in Shepton Beauchamp. Also nearby are Dillington House and the National Trust house of Barrington Court.
The cottage is in the heart of Somerset cider country and the Temperley's Cider Brandy Company at Burrow Hill and Perry's Cider Brewery and Museum are both nearby.
The old market town of Ilminster is also nearby, with its beautiful 15th Century hamstone church, Arts Centre and Warehouse Theatre...not to mention the practical benefits of its butcher, baker, Coop, Tesco and other shops (Waitrose in Crewkerne will also deliver).
Please treat the place as you would your own (newly refurbished!) home, thank you & have a wonderful stay.
