From the beautiful.

This fabulous detached stone cottage in an expanse of family owned parkland provides you with absolute privacy and peace, with the nearest property over two hundred metres away!
From the beautiful, ivy-lined entrance to the house, you will appreciate immediately the charm and grandeur of this elegant property. With all the character of a traditional country house, but the perks of a modern refurbishment, Draper House truly has the best of both worlds! There is a charming hallway with lovely wooden furniture and lighting to welcome you inside.
Within, there are two living rooms, one in a fabulous open plan design, alongside the large dining area and kitchen. This first living room has two huge sofas and a beautiful old stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The dining area has ample seating for ten people, and plenty of space for all the party to drink, dine and relax. The second living room is separated from this main space, and enjoys a super comfy sofa and large flatscreen HDTV with Bluetooth soundbar – the perfect room for a bit of downtime. The fabulous modern fitted kitchen is a masterpiece. It has two electric ovens and an induction hob, as well as a vast central island to make cooking a joy! There's a couple of stools too so you can enjoy your breakfast at the bar, or perhaps just keep the chef company. Alongside the kitchen is a large conservatory with views out over the colourful, expansive gardens.
The four bright and airy bedrooms are incredibly spacious, with simple, tasteful decor and a real sense of home comfort. The master bedroom has a superking sized bed and huge ensuite bathroom, while the other three rooms have two single beds, which can be arranged either separately or as superking doubles. One of these twin rooms is ensuite, while the othertwo share a large family bathroom. All three bathrooms are incredibly sleek and stylish, while retaining a homely feel.
When the weather is fine, be sure to make the most of your beautiful, secluded garden! Dine al fresco in the sun on the lovely set of table and chairs, or simply stroll through the grounds. With a hugely spacious lawn (complete with pond!) and fabulous stone terrace, all enveloped in a lush array of flowers and trees, and even a wild woodland area, you'd be silly not to explore! And that's just your private land! There's so much more to take in in this stunning part of the country, so be sure to escape into the myriad of local country lanes and footpaths and set out for a good hike or cycle. There's bikes available for hire locally, though we recommend booking in advance.
And it's not just the countryside on your doorstep – the lovely town of Ilminster is just a couple of miles away so you'll have everything you need, from bars and restaurants to shops and attractions, just a short cycle or drive away.

Location

Very near to the town of Ilminster and surrounded by fields and woods, Draper House benefits from access to both amazing local walking and cycling routes throughout the myriad of local country lanes and footpaths, and a huge array of pubs, restaurants and activities in the local vicinity!
There are several country pubs nearby, some within walking distance and many others just a short drive or cycle away, including the Barrington Boar, the Dinnington Docks and the Lord Poulett Arms.
There is also a variety of shopping opportunities in Ilminster, as well as a number of local attractions, such as the Dennis Chinaworks (with fabulous tea rooms), Dillington House (a venue for regular classical music concerts) and Barrington House, a National Trust house with gardens open to the public, that are well worth a visit.
There are also a number of local cider producers nearby, Perry's Cider in Dowlish Wake and Julian Temperley's cider and cider brandy distillery at Burrow Hill, whose orchards and presses are worth seeing. And finally, the lovely beach at Lyme Regis, and of course the infamous Jurassic coastline, perfect for a day or two walking, are both just 40 minutes or so away.
