Ansford Park Cottage

Set in the beautiful and peaceful Somerset countryside, this late nineteenth century Cottage is home to architect Nigel Begg and his wife Sue.

Far Reaching Views

During the course of his work, Nigel came across this cottage set in an acre of untouched garden in a beautiful elevated position.  The cottage has been extended taking full advantage of the far reaching views of open countryside across to the Mendips

The cottage is energy efficient with high levels of insulation as well as solar thermal panels and a rainwater harvesting system.  On a recently erected replacement outbuilding, PV panels have also been added.

Beautiful Gardens

Terraces have been created on the sloping garden with much planting of shrubs and flowering plants giving year round colour.

Ideal for Walkers and Cyclists

Walkers and cyclists are welcome. Local routes are explored and helpful advice can be given.

There are many lovely walks in the area to suit walkers of all abilities. The Cottage is very close to three popular long distance walks (The Leland Trail, Macmillan Way and The Monarch’s Way), which pass through Castle Cary.

There are cycle ways and quiet routes throughout the area.

Sue and Nigel thoroughly enjoy the opportunity of sharing their much loved home which has proved both popular with walkers and for those wishing to retreat to this tranquil haven. They are keen for their guests to feel completely at home.

There is a utility area where boots can dry and a lock up store for bikes.  There is also ample parking in a private drive.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.
