We live in Australia, and on our first visit to the UK in 1996, we both fell in love with England. We've returned 5 times on holidays since then.
In 2007, we got the opportunity to live and work in England. We found ourselves in Montacute, and we absolutely loved it. We stayed for 4 years, and only the lure of a secure job and the imminent arrival of grandchildren dragged us reluctantly back to Australia. When the chance to buy a property in Montacute came up, we couldn't pass it up. It's a beautiful village. One day, we hope to be able to live 6 months in Montacute and 6 months in Australia.
Montacute is the quintessential English village. There is so much to do in the village, within a short walk from the village, or further afield.

Smashing cottage set in a lovely village. Welcoming and friendly. Cottage spotlessly clean and everything you would need to hand and all of excellent quality. Montacute brilliantly located to visit the surrounding area. Village pub the Phelips great for food if you don't fancy cooking.Would have liked a full length mirror and shaver point but that aside would stay again. A++
