Set on a quiet country lane in beautiful walking country overlooking the Vale of Taunton, The Mouse House is the perfect place to 'get away from it all'. A large one bedroomed cottage, it is part of the estate of Higher House which was originally a 17th century farmhouse and was extended and refurbished by Evelyn Ellis, the first Daimler/Mercedes magnet, in 1932.
The Mouse House sits in its own courtyard which contains a swimming pool and catches the maximum sun all year round.
Behind the cottage is a fabulous view of Lydeard Hill where red deer can frequently be seen grazing on the slopes.
Higher House is 650ft above sea-level and is located at the top of the village of West Bagborough which nestles in the lea of the Quantocks.
The village boasts a fine palladian building (Bagborough House) and Church and an excellent gastro pub The Rising Sun, which is only 200 yds from the cottage doors.
The Mouse House is ideally located as a base for walking, touring and riding on the Quantocks, and Exmoor.
An excellent golf course is only 1/2 mile away at Cedar Falls - the luxury Health Spa which offers many relaxing and revitalising treatments and activities.
Other places to visit include Hestercombe Gardens (NT), Lynton & Lynmouth, Watchet Marina and Dunster Castle (NT).
The glorious West Somerset and North Devon Coast, Minehead, Exmoor and Lorna Doone Valley are all within easy reach.
