This detached single storey hamstone conversion is located in the village of Batcombe near to Shepton Mallet in Somerset and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Little Shortwood is a delightful, detached single storey Hamstone conversion in the rural Somerset village of Batcombe just a few miles from Shepton Mallet. All on one level (with just a few internal steps), this cottage can sleep four people in one double and one twin bedroom. The cottage also contains a family bathroom, a fitted galley kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a woodburning stove.

Outside the cottage is off road parking for one car, a large decked balcony with garden furniture and shared use of the owner's garden. With the local pub in the village, and with the whole of this beautiful area to discover, Little Shortwood is a fabulous holiday cottage whatever the time of year.


The cottage was absolutely lovely and very well equipped. The decking was a real bonus! I felt that the pictures on the website didn't do it justice. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends. We've been using Sykes for many years and we think this was one of the nicest we've stayed in. Looking forward to booking with you in the Isle of Wight next year!
Mrs Reilly

The cottage had everything we needed. It was close to a lovely pub and the wood burner made for cosy evenings. We could have spent a week exploring the local area. The owners were very amenable and helped us with our queries.
Miss Rushton

The property was excellent, very comfy sofas and beds, brilliant power shower, clean, spacious, well equipped kitchen, everything you could possibly need, warm with friendly owners.
Mr Thompson

The cottage is in a beautiful location and had everything we could possibly need. The owners couldn't be more helpful and were perfect hosts!
Mrs Brockett

This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful village. The view from the cottage is fabulous and the garden is brilliant. The owners are very welcoming and our holiday was perfect.
