The secret ‘Tardis’ cottage is bigger than it looks

Like Tardis: Backabit Cottage certainly lives up to its name, squished between two other properties. (247Property/APEX)

If you didn’t know he was there, you would definitely miss him. But this hidden Somerset cottage is full of surprises – just like Doctor Whoit’s Tardis.

Squished between two houses, it certainly lives up to its adorable name – “Backabit Cottage”.

And it’s now for sale for £109,000 – just under the average property price in the area, which sits at around £275,000.

Behind the unassuming front door, there’s a whole two-story house waiting for you.

Inside, there’s 538 square feet of space, including an inviting pale green lobby with stained glass windows and handy shelving.

Also on the ground floor is the living room and a full kitchen with a wood burning stove.

Upstairs there is a bedroom, with enough space for a double bed, as well as the bathroom which has a combined bath and shower.

The house has a real country house feel with traditional exposed beams and sash windows adding to the cozy atmosphere.

And although it is private, the chalet is conveniently located a ten minute walk from Highbridge station.

Auctioneer Scott Gray, known for his regular appearances on BBC Homes Under the Hammer, said: “This cottage offers real charm due to its unusual location, tucked away behind the properties main terrace. The deceptively spacious accommodation gives the cottage a real Tardis- like feeling!”

The house goes up for auction in two weeks from 247 Property Auctions, so if you’ve always dreamed of living in a TARDIS – and think you could fit your furniture through the front door – this could be the house for you.
