This contemporary barn conversion is set amongst the apple trees at Shells, an attractive rural property near the pretty Somerset village of Washford & Williton. Set back from the road, this cottage is one of several at Shells and is completely private, set in its own grounds. The modern open plan living area is extremely well equipped and opens onto a wide wooden veranda overlooking the orchard, where you can sit and listen to the merry birdsong. The bedrooms are all on ground level, with wooden laminate flooring, and the addition of a gorgeous Italian marble-lined wet room makes for stylish living. Outside there is a partially covered private hot tub, ideal for relaxing after a day out and about, taking part in the multitude of countryside activities in the area including fishing, golf, horse riding and walking the coastal path which starts at the pretty port of Watchet, 2 miles away.
