Situated off a quiet, pedestrian only lane, this wonderful and historic 17th century cottage is tucked away , offering seclusion combined with stylish accommodation, whilst being within easy reach of both Bath and Bristol. EPC Rating E.

Formally owned by Oakhill Brewery, this 17th Century, detached character cottage, beautifully blends modern and light areas with cosy character spaces, to create a wonderfully welcoming home. It offers a highly unique and appealing position, being tucked away off a hidden lane, whilst still giving easy access to the heart of the village and to the larger cultural centres of Bath, Bristol and the stunning Cathedral City of Wells. The generous kitchen/dining room, which having been redeveloped in 2013, seamlessly combines character with modern day living. From the characterful and original brick flooring and exposed beams, to the vaulted ceiling with skylights and French doors leading out to the terraced seating area, this offers a wonderful family space. The cosy sitting room, has a feature fireplace with fitted stove and window seats and leads to a separate study, which was partitioned off by the current owners for home working, but could once again be incorporated into the sitting room space or could equally be used as a welcoming entrance hall, as there is a door to the front garden.

Dye Lane is situated in the centre of the sought after village of Oakhill. Lying some 7 miles to the North East of Wells, the village offers a good quality public house, primary school, 3 churches and a doctor's surgery. The village is well placed for road links to other major cities, including the beautiful Georgian City of Bath, only 17 miles away and having a mainline train station, with a direct connection to London and there is also a direct train link from Castle Cary, 10 miles to the South. There are many sporting facilities within the area, including various golf clubs and a short distance away is Babington House, a private members club and exclusive hotel. There are several exceptional schools within the vicinity, Millfield, Downside and Wells Cathedral School, to name but a few.

Rose Cottage is set off Dye Lane, in a pretty pedestrian only area. There are two gates into the garden, which has an attractive stone wall. There is a main terrace seating area, directly off the house, with brick paving and looks over the well planted cottage garden, which also includes a bike and log store.
