This studio cottage is situated in the grounds of the owners home in the Somerset town of South Petherton and contains one double bed.

Idler’s Cottage is a ham-stone studio-cottage that offers accommodation for up to 2 people. All the accommodation is laid-out over one level and has been decorated with taste and thought throughout. A private patio allows you to enjoy a spot of summertime dining while, in the winter months, storage heaters and a wood burning stove ensure that you can still enjoy all that the area has to offer. Although there is off-road parking for 1 car, the local shops and pubs are just a short walk from the front door. Idler’s Cottage is well placed as a base from which to seek out local attractions.


Beautiful cottage, wonderful little touches such as the furnishings and pretty garden flowers. The bed was so very comfortable and the overall comfort was perfect for two. Unobtrusive owners who were friendly when we arrived. Thank you for providing such a pretty place to stay.
Ms Muir

A very peaceful and restful environment. A plentiful supply of shops nearby, very helpful and non-intrusive owners.
Mr Tomlin

A lovely cottage with excellent owners who give you all the information about the cottage and surrounding area then leave you to get on and enjoy your stay - perfect. It was nice and secluded, comfortable and quiet, perfect.
