Stags are very pleased to bring this lovely cottage to the market for the first time since 1955. The cottage was originally the Halswell House Estate Gardeners Cottage until the estate was sold in the early 1950's. The beautiful and ornate Robins Hood's Hut, which is now used as a holiday cottage with The Landmark Trust, can be seen across the field behind the property.

Spring Cottage is a charming detached cottage constructed of cob and brick elevations under a tiled roof with original crittall windows. The property has been extended over the years and offers spacious accommodation throughout with stunning far reaching views of the Mendip Hills and beyond. The property is privately situated with the gardens and fields that surround.


An entrance door leads into the living room. This is a wonderful dual aspect room with a deep feature fireplace with open fire grate and brick surround. There is a feature ceiling beam and stairs rise to the first floor. The dining room, again, is a dual aspect room with two storage cupboards, a beamed ceiling and a fitted Parkray stove. The kitchen / breakfast room has a window to the side with far reaching views and there is a door leading out to the patio area. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units with a stainless-steel sink / drainer, a pantry cupboard and there is space for a washing machine. There is a fully tiled downstairs wet room, that was installed in 2015 by the current owners.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, all of a fantastic size. One of the bedrooms benefits from fitted wardrobes. There is a bathroom suite, separate WC and a storage cupboard that could be converted to create an en-suite, if required, subject to the necessary planning consents.


The gardens are a wonderful feature of the property and are in an elevated position at the rear of the property. The gardens are fully enclosed by mature hedgerows to either side and there are a range of deep planted herbaceous borders with mature plants, trees and shrubs. There are large expanses of lawns and an orchard to the rear of the garden with a variety of soft fruit trees. To one side, is a courtyard patio area, which allows you to truly enjoy the views of the Mendip Hills and beyond. In all, the grounds extend to 0.3 of an acre. There is a single garage, coal shed and workshop to the side of the property with power and light and parking to the front.


Proceed out on Taunton heading towards North Petherton and Bridgwater. On entering North Petherton turn left onto Dancing Hill. Proceed along this road towards Goathurst. The property can be found on your left hand side, before entering the village, as identified by a Stags For Sale board.
