The Headmasters Cottage is a beautiful Victorian cottage offering a quiet and private escape but at the same time just a two minute walk from the centre of Dulverton, with a good choice of shops, restaurants, pubs and tea rooms - although it might take a little longer to walk back! The cottage sits in an elevated position and is attached to the owners home, The Old School House, overlooking All Saints Church. The views over the small town of Dulverton and the Barle Valley are wonderful. Peace and tranquility are guaranteed at The Headmasters Cottage, only interrupted by the sound of the Church clock. Traffic free country walks start from your front door. The main entrance is at the side of the cottage and leads straight into a large hall, with plenty of room for coats and shoes.

Traffic free country walks start from your front door. The main entrance is at the side of the cottage and leads straight into a large hall, with plenty of room for coats and shoes. There is a second entrance to the rear of the property, which leads into the utility area which is ideal for hiking boots or wellingtons. The spacious sitting and dining room is to the front of the property and the bay windows take in the view towards the church. There is a breakfast room which leads up a couple of steps to the modern galley-style kitchen. There is a downstairs shower room with toilet and hand basin; plus a small utility room with a combined washing machine and tumble dryer. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms, one has a king-size bed, and the other has a double bed - both with televisions. The upstairs bathroom has a bath with shower over, toilet and hand basin. Please note: Sorry, no pets or children at The Headmasters Cottage. Also, the property is approached via a narrow 200 metre bridleway, so guests with very large vehicles are advised to negotiate it slowly. The kitchen appliances include fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer, microwave, and oven with hob. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, cafetiere, a variety of cookware, kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. The living room has a television (with Sky TV).

Bed linen, duvets, and towels (including tea towels) are provided, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of the accommodation. The Headmasters Cottage benefits from central heating, which is controlled by thermostats that can be adjusted to suit your preferences if required. The electric ‘wood-burner' in the sitting room gives a cosy atmosphere on the cooler evenings and can be used to top up the temperature if required. A Cream Tea will be in the cottage on your arrival together with a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge to toast the start of your holiday and fresh flowers in the sitting room. Non-perishable items including salt, pepper, and toilet rolls. Cleaning materials such as washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets and surface cleaner will be present in the property together with a hoover. There is a seating area beside The Headmasters Cottage. There is also a large sloping garden area to the rear, which is shared with the owners but you are welcome to enjoy. The lovely view looks over the property and Dulverton.

The cottage was very clean, tidy and well-equipped (and warm, which was important given the rather soggy weather!). Dulverton itself is a lovely village, with very good shopping (baker, deli, butcher, farm shop, Co-op) for self-catering, and many eating-out opportunities for the days when you...More
