Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet and Castle Cary are all within easy reach as are many villages and larger towns. Combined they provide a wide range of commercial, cultural and sporting amenities to suit most needs. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including many primary schools, Strode College, Wells Blue School, St Dunstans, Crispins, Wells Cathedral, Millfield, All Hallows, Hazelgrove and the Bruton schools. Communications are good with the A303 a few miles south, Bristol international airport on the Mendips and Castle Cary station within 5 miles.

The Property 
Hillbury Cottage enjoys an idyllic position, well away from practically any traffic and approached from a quiet treelined country lane. The Cottage is a handsome period building with stone elevations with brick quoins under a slated roof. It's been extended and sympathetically improved over the years whilst retaining its charm and appeal which are enhanced by the well fitted kitchen and bathrooms and the large oak framed windows in the sitting room and master bedroom. The comfortable accommodation has oil fired central heating and the front porch has a heavy pine door which opens into the hall. Here are the staircase and a door to into a combined cloakroom and utility room which has blue lias flagstones, Belfast sink, fitted cupboards, work top, tiled splashbacks and a high cistern wc.

Accommodation 
The kitchen and dining room is a large triple aspect and light and airy room with plenty of space, a stone tiled floor and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. There's a good range of fitted units, a Belfast sink, tiled splashbacks and a central island unit with a granite worktop. Appliances include a Smeg range cooker (hotplate, rotisserie oven, warming draw etc.) and an integral dishwasher and fridge. Off the kitchen is a store cupboard housing the central heating boiler. Beyond is a splendid triple aspect sitting room with full height and width oak framed windows which together with the french doors and windows flood the room with sunlight. The room has lovely views over gardens and adjoining meadows.

First Floor 
Upstairs the master bedroom is another delightful room and like the sitting room has full height windows and width windows maximising light and the views. Leading off is a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with floor and wall tiling, hand basin, wc and shower cubicle. There are two other bedrooms, one having a fireplace and fitted wardrobes. The bathroom has a hand basin, wc and a free standing bath.

The Cottage 
Just beyond the main cottage is the detached Cottage which provides additional accommodation for the main house when needed and is also ideal for relations/guests or as a small holiday letting unit. It includes a living room with a kitchenette with units and appliances, a shower room and a bedsitting room with double french doors to a terrace of timber decking. Linked to the terrace is an attractive hexagonal Gazebo.

Outside 
A gravelled drive leads into the property and there is large parking area in front of the oak framed garage building. This provides a double bay open fronted garage and a store room. The property totals about half an acre and the gardens are easily managed being mainly lawned with mature trees and shrubs. The timber decking and gazebo area are bathed in sunshine for much of the day and there's also a very pleasing well sheltered terrace immediately outside the sitting room french doors. There's a small stream on the northern side and a very pretty wooded area alongside. At the other end of the garden is a further wooed area with a firepit.

Shortly after passing the Murco petrol station on the right, turn right into Pylle Lane (signposted Pylle Church) and continue to the T- Junction.
