This charming hamstone cottage is situated in Puckington, a small village of mainly attractive period properties that sits to the north of Ilminster. The three/four-bedroom property, named The Writer’s Cottage, is packed with original charm and character, and is surprisingly spacious inside. The entire house has recently benefitted from an extensive and careful renovation and is now beautifully presented with a range of lovely features that sit alongside the property’s original characteristics such as exposed beams, farmhouse doors, and a stone fireplace. The house offers flexible accommodation over two storeys with three double bedrooms upstairs and a single downstairs.
