A charming period cottage with delightful grounds


Apple Tree Cottage is located at the foot of the Mendip Hills, an area noted for its outstanding natural beauty. Rowberrow itself is served by a public house, and the nearby village of Shipham is well served by a range of local shops, churches, primary schools and a further pubs. There is secondary schooling both state and private, including Churchill and Sidcot respectively as well as a number of high quality schools within the cities of Bristol and Wells, both within a 15 mile commute. Bristol International Airport provides a wide range of flights to most European and some long haul destinations. The rail links at Yatton (approximately 7 miles distant) and Weston Super Mare provide easy access to the capital and other cities nationwide.


Occupying a truly idyllic position within a hidden wooded valley, Apple Tree Cottage is set within delightful rural grounds of some 7 acres. This is the perfect home for those seeking peace and tranquillity and a true sense of getting away from it all yet without sacrificing the convenience of the relatively short drive in Bristol City Centre, being within a walk of a popular village pub and church. This area of outstanding natural beauty adjoins the beautiful Mendip Hills with miles of bridle paths immediately accessible without crossing a public road. Within the grounds sit two former stables and although these are now dilapidated, they sit upon a permanent base and could be reinstated for those seeking to keep horses within the paddock. Back Lane is a footpath which crosses the land in a north south direction with a small and pretty brook running alongside the drive and through the valley floor. It is worth noting that there is a steep untarmac driveway down to the property but this affords a wonderful sense of privacy with just the occasional walker enjoying the beautiful countryside and the abundance of natural wildlife that the valley attracts. The current owners bought the home some 20 years ago and upon purchasing extended the home which may still offer scope in this regard subject to usual planning approval. A driveway immediately adjacent to the property provides parking for a number of vehicles in addition to the detached double timber garage which also houses laundry appliances to avoid sacrificing space within the main home. High on the south facing wooded slope is perched a raised deck with sheltered dining area known as the tree house. Certainly a fun place for entertaining family and friends or simply enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day and capturing the early evening sunshine. A raised lawned garden extending to a small enclosed paddock sits to the front of the property and adjacent to the approach drive. The property has two principal access doors, either directly into the kitchen/diner or through the delightful study with open fireplace and wood burning stove. The kitchen/diner is of a good size now approaching 22 ft in length following its extension, with a wonderful wide window at the far end commanding exceptional views across the grounds. The cosy drawing room, again with doors to the garden also features an inglenook style fireplace with further substantial cast iron stove, exposed timber beams and a secure under stairs store with a staircase leading to the three first floor bedrooms and bathroom.
