Longbridge Cottage

Longbridge Cottage is a beautiful grade II listed stone holiday cottage available to rent for breaks of 2 to 21 days

This lovely old cottage is set in the cobbled grounds of historic Longbridge House (our AA 4*rated B&B), nestled within the oldest part and conservation area of Shepton Mallet.

This charming cottage is part of the grounds of Longbridge House, an historic house, famed locally for being where the Duke of Monmouth stayed before and after the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.

outside4With a high vaulted ceiling, beams and thick stone walls it retains many of its original characteristics. Steps lead to a sunny south-facing decked area complete with Roman well, views over surrounding buildings and backing onto the owners’ garden with a veggie patch, fruit trees and chickens!

The cottage has proudly achieved a Cottages 4you Grade 4* rating.

Accommodation: The accommodation designed for 2 people, consists of a galleried bedroom, an open living/dining room/kitchen area, a shower room and toilet. There’s a stylish open tread spiral stairs to a king size bed in a vaulted galleried bedroom which looks down over the main living area giving a great sense of space.

Generally the cottage is designed for 2 people only as there is only 1 bedroom, however if you have a small child and wish to bring your own cot/pop-up bed with your own bedding, then this is absolutely fine.
