Substantial Grade II Listed Thatched Country Inn with Letting Rooms
The Thatched Cottage is situated on the busy A361 road on the edge of the historic town of Shepton Mallet. Shepton Mallet is a market town located 18 miles south of Bristol, nestling in a fold of the Mendips. It is the closest town to Glastonbury Festival site and the Bath and West Showground which hosts many large events throughout the year. The town is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Mendips’ which is a popular tourist destination within its own right. Nearby are many visitor attractions, National Trust properties and places of interest including Kilver Court Gardens, The Bishops Palace at Wells, Wookey Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge. The Cities of Wells, Bath and Bristol are all less than an hours drive from the property.
A substantial, detached Grade II Listed thatched building sat in a generous plot with large car park and trade gardens to two sides. Internally the property is beautifully presented with interlinking character trading areas providing over a hundred covers in total. The property benefits from an extremely well equipped commercial kitchen with ancillary utilities. The 4* rated 8 en suite letting rooms are all beautifully and individually presented, 2 of which are superior rooms. Outside there is a 1 bed owners detached cottage and 2 outside trading areas, 1 of which has been completely renovated and re-landscaped in the last year.
