The Cottages 
Both of the holiday letting cottages provide the owner with an income which in his opinion could easily be improved on. They are both converted to a very good standard and provide spacious accommodation. They are contrasting in style, detached and enjoy a high degree of privacy from each other. In addition to the two detached buildings one half of the main house is currently let out providing the owner with an income from the letting of three units. The rooms and description relating to the third which is Spiders End Cottage form part of the details providing above in the main house. The detached holiday lettings are as follows:

Potting Shed 
Single storey detached cottage which is centrally heated and supplemented by a feature living flame fire in the sitting room. There is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. The separate kitchen is equipped with a range of wall and base cupboards, an electric cooker, microwave oven, fridge freezer and automatic washing machine. Outside there is a patio area next to the property with a water feature. There is a private parking bay.

Middle Earth 
Unique fairytale style detached single storey timber building made up of four pods providing an open plan living room and kitchen area as well as a hall, double bedroom and a shower room with a Jacuzzi shower. Electrically heated and supplemented by a feature living flame fire in the sitting room. The kitchen area is equipped with a range of wall and base cupboards, an electric cooker, microwave oven and a fridge freezer. Outside there is a private parking bay and the garden area relevant to this cottage is laid to lawn with garden furniture provided.

The Business 
In the same ownership for over 17 years, a successful and established business has been built up with high levels of repeat visitors and recommendations. Until recently the owner chose to let the cottages privately through his website pottingshedholidays.co.uk. The cottages have previously been rated by Visit England as 4*. Currently the owner chooses to let out Spider’s End cottage as a holiday letting property but this property could be reincorporated back into the main residence to provide extra living accommodation if required. Due to the current set up all of the individual units are taxed separately for council tax.

About the Property 
Harters Hill Cottage is a 17th century property retaining many original features, including old exposed oak beams and an inglenook fireplace. Made from local Mendip stone the building retains its old world charm. Originally three farmer’s cottages with a small orchard and some out buildings the property has been extended over the centuries. More recently the current owner planned to transform it into one large family cottage. However, after substantial renovation to Harters Hill he saw potential for a self catering cottage business. It is important to note that Harters Hill Cottage comprises four double en-suite bedrooms under one roof. Although, the current layout allows separation of the family home to include 'Spiders End' a self contained holiday cottage via the closure of specific interconnected doors. If this set up is required complete privacy can be enjoyed by guests as well as the home owner. Prospective buyers may continue with this arrangement or m...
