Situatuion 
Redhill Cottage and Warehams offer a unique opportunity to purchase two charming cottages set in approximately 8 acres comprising well-maintained gardens, paddocks and woodland. The properties are situated in the peaceful hamlet of Emborough within the Mendip Hills, which is well known for its beautiful landscape, stone walls, caves and unspoilt villages. 

The nearby village of Chewton Mendip enjoys a strong community and boasts a good range of facilities including an excellent primary school, pre-school, village shop, village hall, church and public house. There is a regular bus service from Chewton Mendip to many nearby towns and cities including Bath, Bristol and Wells. 

The cathedral city of Wells is a short drive away and the city, which is the smallest in England, offers a range of shopping facilities, including a high proportion of independent shops and boutiques, banks, restaurants, public houses, cinema and churches. The stunning market square holds a farmer's market on Wednesday and Saturday. 

Mainline rail services to London Paddington are available from Bath, Bristol and Castle Cary. Bristol Airport is 14 miles away. 

There is a wide range of good schools nearby in both the public and private sectors. The properties are within the catchment of Chewton Mendip primary school and The Blue School, Wells to which there is a school bus daily. Private schools locally include Wells Cathedral (a specialist music school), Sidcot, Downside and Millfield. 

The area is also well known for its variety of sporting and leisure facilities and for walking, cycling while sailing and fishing can be pursued at Chew Valley Lake. Leisure centres can be found at Wells and Shepton Mallet. Wells, Mendip and Farrington Golf courses are conveniently located close by and horse racing enthusiasts are catered for at Bath and Wincanton Race Courses.

The Grounds

Both cottages have their own private parking and separate private gardens. The gardens are well stocked with mature trees and shrubs. The gardens are enclosed by stone walls and new wooden fencing. There are a number of seating areas with in the garden where you can sit and enjoy the peacefulness and far reaching views.

The Land

The properties are set in paddocks and woodland extending to just over 8 acres which is more than adequate for the keeping of horses or livestock and the establishment of a smallholding.

Within the woodland, which is recently planted with a mixture of broadleaf and coniferous trees, the current owners have created pleasant walks with glades and a wealth of flora and fauna.

The productive pasture paddocks are bound by walls and fences and are in excellent order. There is a timber range of stables together with an implement/log store.

There are French doors leading to the wonderful sunroom where you can enjoy the views of the garden and landscape beyond. From the kitchen you can also access the good sized garage and workshop.

The dining room is double aspect and has room for a sizeable table whilst the cosy sitting room has a wood burning stove set in a stone fireplace and double glass doors leading to the sunroom.

Also on the ground floor are a study/four bedroom and a shower room. There is a master bedroom and two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

This charming two bedroom cottage has a newly fitted kitchen, two well-proportioned receptions rooms, one with an open fire and a shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
