Whippletree cottage is one of three stone cottages available to rent at Withy Mills Farm, a working dairy farm dating back to the 18th century. Nestling in the folds of the Cam Valley, Withy Mills Farm has extensive views across the Mendip Hills
The farm lies one mile from the village of Timsbury situated between Bath and Bristol.
The cottages have been sympathetically restored from stone farm buildings to provide luxury accommodation for 21st century living. Original stone and joinery have been re-used where possible and traditional methods used to bring the buildings back to their former glory.
The area is a great place to enjoy your holiday. From the grandeur of Bath to the delightful small villages to be discovered, there are activities to keep everyone occupied. Shopping in Bristol and Bath is close at hand and of course the historic legacies of both cities are open for all to explore.
Whippletree Cottage was originally a barn store and now provides accommodation on two levels suitable for four guests in two double rooms. On the ground floor the entrance leads you into the living and kitchen/dining area where a matrix of beautiful green oak timbers support the roof above you.
The modern kitchen area has oven/hob, dishwasher and microwave. The lounge has two double settees with TV, video, DVD and CD player.
Stairs lead up to the open area of the main bedroom with king sized bed. From here you can enjoy views across the Cam Brook Valley or simply gaze around the cottage to admire the stone walls and oak detail.
Downstairs, below the mezzanine floor you will find the second bedroom with twin beds or super king. The shower room on te ground floor is laid out as a wet room with walk in shower.
Underfloor heating throughout is provided by our geo-thermal heat pump, however if you wish, you can take advantage of the wood burning stove in the lounge with a complimentary basket of logs provided.
A welcome cream tea is also included with organic, local or home made produce.
There is a private garden area to the rear of each property from where you can admire the views, and relax. Wooden garden chairs and a table are provided.
