Welcome to Calendar cottage
You are assured of a friendly welcome at Calendar Cottage, an old hamstone cottage dating back to the early 17th century with its own unique period character and an extensive, well maintained garden.
Situated in a peaceful countryside village, you have many options for visiting museums, gardens, impressive country houses, antique/craft shops and unique English country villages.
We are tucked away amidst the rolling hills of the South Somerset Dorset borders, just over a mile from the historic Georgian market town of Crewkerne, and only a short drive from the Jurassic Coast and some of the best beaches in the South.
