Keepers Cottage is a 19th century cottage extended in the 1960s thereby offering a spacious five bedroom family accommodation.

Adjoining farmland in a pleasant edge of village location, Keepers Cottage enjoys outstanding rural views from several of the first floor rooms and sits in a plot extending to just under half of an acre.

A garage and utility room with a large room over were added in 1990s.

There is an oil fired heating system complemented by an open fire in the sitting room and a Rayburn in the kitchen.

There is a mix of timber and uPVC framed windows, partially double glazed.

Keepers Cottage is well situated on the elevated northern edge of the highly favoured South Somerset village of Drayton which is designated as a Conservation Area in order to preserve its character and the many fine period properties of various styles.

The village has a pretty 15th century parish church, inn and hall. Drayton's active community hosts an annual street fair and monthly markets in the village hall.

Nearby Curry Rivel, being a larger village, has a wider range of facilities including convenience store, post office within the garage shop, inns, hardware store with super tea room, primary school, beautiful parish church and garages.

Langport, just over two miles away, is a pleasant former market town with excellent everyday amenities including supermarket, bank, doctors' and dentists' surgeries, veterinary surgery, primary school and excellent secondary and sixth form schooling facilities at the nearby Huish Episcopi Academy.

Other nearby centres include Yeovil, Bridgwater, Street (Millfield School) and access to the A303 (linking with the M3) is about ten miles.

The south facing cottage style garden has an area of lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and feature tree. Paved pathways and iron gate from the village road. Steps lead to an enclosed area at the rear of the garage where the oil tank is sited.
