If your struggling to find a high street bank that will part with their cash for a mortgage and happen to have £4,000 a month burning a hole in your pocket, then this letting property in Somerset could be for you. The Dairy House is an achingly hip conversion of a 1901 cheesemakers cottage that has been the focus of much attention from design press and country-bumpkin reads, such as Country Life, alike.
