The entrance hall to Millview with its beautiful old flagstones worn to a polish by generations of boots and shoes has a stone archway leading into the older section of the house dating from the very earliest years of the 17th century. Here, the stairs lead up to the first floor.

Sitting Room

The sitting room beyond has a welcoming log burning stove set into a huge inglenook fireplace. This fireplace houses a seven foot deep bread oven although now the door has been replaced by a beautiful stained glass window made by the owner showing the nearby Glastonbury Tor. Again, the floor is of ancient flagstones covered in part by an oriental carpet. The sitting room is complete with digital LCD TV with separate video and DVD Player and comfortable seating for up to 6 people.

Kitchen

The adjacent dining room has a large table, easily seating 6 people. In this room there is an original glass fronted cupboard built into the wall, and a fireplace with a dressed stone surround. Under the window is a wooden chest with an assortment of board games.

The galley style kitchen is beautifully fitted with a full range of SMEG appliances, and is fully equipped to provide for up to 6 people. Leading from the kitchen is a small utility area with a washing machine, fridge freezer and a microwave.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a double bed and the other with a double and a single bed, both bedrooms have polished wood floors with rugs. There are two 'Z' beds for additional guests. The larger of these two bedrooms has an ornate cast iron fireplace set into the corner of the wall.

Bedroom 1    Bedroom 2

The bathroom is also on the first floor, and has a free standing roll top cast iron bath, shower cubicle and toilet.

Garden

Although the ceilings are high the doorways are not, you have been warned!

The pretty garden at the rear of the house is tranquil with only the chatter of jackdaws that congregate around the nearby church to intrude on the peace. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with flower beds and mature shrubs.

There is a gas powered BBQ and loungers provided together with a table and chairs for al fresco dining.
