About Tintinhull House

An idyllic Somerset stay among the formal gardens of Tintinhull.

More than just a pretty façade, 17th-century Tintinhull has exceptional interior style too. A country-style kitchen, a roaring open fire and large, garden-view bedrooms make for an authentic stay with a little added luxury. The house is ideal for large parties of up to eight. 

It sits at the head of Tintinhull’s network of garden rooms, which you’re invited to explore ‘after-hours’ when all the visitors have gone home. 

Nearby, the local village of Tintinhull has some excellent pubs, while the city of Wells is a true marvel. It would be a crime to visit without seeing inside its famous cathedral. Other nearby properties includes Barrington Court, Lytes Cary & Montacute House.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
