Tenure: Freehold

A CHARACTER COTTAGE built in 1790 on the edge of the village, thought to date back several hundred years, offering TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS and A LARGE RECEPTION ROOM, offered in excellent, REFURBISHED ORDER, including a secluded sun trap patio, and only yards from OPEN COUNTRYSIDE and COUNTRY WALKS.

Set within the olde worlde part of the village, Dunster Cottage nestles close to countryside walks, but is still only a short stroll (ten minutes) to either the village centre or to The Gorge, both offering excellent shopping facilities and pubs, restaurants etc. Tastefully restored and modernised by the present owner, this cottage oozes charm and character with flagstone floors, timber beams and a superb Inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. Perfect as a first home, or smaller home for downsizers, or ideal as a 'lock up and leave' bolthole, a viewing appointment is thoroughly recommended to truly appreciate this lovely cottage.

Situated at the foot of the Mendip Hills, Cheddar is an ideal base from which to enjoy wonderful country walks. Road links are excellent, with easy access to the A38. Bristol is only 30 minutes away and the M5 motorway approximately 20 minutes. Public transport is well represented with a bus service passing through the village every hour linking Cheddar with Axbridge, Weston Super Mare and Wells. Bristol International Airport is 25 minutes away. Please note, the village is not under the flight path therefore aircraft noise is not a consideration for residents. Local attractions include Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury Tor and the seaside at Weston Super Mare.
The village itself has a wide range of shops to cater for everyday needs, banks, a building society and a Post Office as well as doctor and dentist surgeries. There is a three-tier school system where children up to the age of nine attend the First School, then move on to Fairlands Middle School and finally on to The Kings of Wessex Academy and all these schools are within the village. The Kings Fitness and Leisure Centre adjoining the Kings of Wessex Academy offers an extensive range of activities for all the family and has an indoor heated swimming pool. There are also a number of village sports clubs and societies to cater for everyone.
