The Loves Cottage - In the Heart of Somerset.
Watch the village go by the front garden. Evercreech village is a hive of activity. The Village Hall is close by and promotes table-top sales, exhibitions, etc. The local shop is 'open all hours' from early morning until 10pm each day and it is not unusual to see farmyard tractors and horses trundling by the front door.
Having walked along the original stone pathway through the small front cottage garden, entrance to the cottage leads into the Lounge.
In the lounge is a fully working Inglenook Fireplace (logs for burning can be found in the back garden) for those cosy nights in if it gets chilly).
There is a television and DVD player, radio and CD player, a bookcase containing books, games and local literature. Sit back and relax in the large settee with matching easy chair and footstool.
The Lounge can be separated from the Dining Room if desired, by closing the large curtain. The dining room is furnished with an Edwardian dining table and four chairs and a large sideboard. An original Victorian Fireplace is now working via gas, and gives immediate, coal effect, heating.
In the corner of the room is a fitted cupboard which houses an ironing board, iron and vacuum cleaner. There is a double futon which can offer additional sleeping accommodation if desired.
The kitchen in the cottage is equipped with everything you will need. It is compact, with gas cooker, fridge/small freezer compartment, washer/dryer machine and micro-wave.
The kitchen also houses the central heating/hot water boiler unit with controls. Hot water is on constant supply on demand.
Situated off from the kitchen, on the ground floor, is the upgraded bathroom which has new, but styled in keeping with the cottage, toilet, large wash-basin, a large double-ended bath as well as a walk-in double-size shower.
Watch your head as you pass through the door into the main bedroom. Room height is good, but the door is crooked and low (people were much shorter in those days!)
This lovely bedroom now has a solid Oak panelled floor. The double glazed windows are a real feature and reach down to the floor. Look up to see the original beam and enjoy a coffee by the windows whilst seated in the comfy chairs.
There is a modern style side dressing unit with plenty of drawers (where lives a small hair dryer) and one large free-standing wardrobe. The small wardrobe in the corner is by design! The 5 ft bed has a chandelier above!
Twin Bed Bedroom
The low beam is a feature in this twin bedded room (as long as you are not too tall!). The window overlooks the rear garden. This room is fully carpeted and has recently been re-decorated in Old English creams with an urban grey feature wall. It has a feature handmade fitted wardrobe and a kidney shaped dressing table.
Access to the rear garden is through the kitchen area. Here you will find a neat, well maintained garden with two patio areas, one next to the lawn and a winding gravel footpath leading up the stone steps to the top patio. There is a Gas Barbeque unit (usually housed in the garden shed) and patio table and chairs . A rotary washing line is also available and lives in the shed.
