Station House is well situated the village, on a quiet lane with very little traffic and in walking distance of local amenities. Wedmore, Wells and Cheddar are all within easy reach. The owner of Station House has pointed out “the village has a wonderful primary school next to the church. There are also other good primary schools, in Cheddar, Axbridge, Wedmore and Westbury-sub- Mendip. The Strawberry Special pub is close by and other amenities include several stores selling local produce and a fabulous community run village store in Draycott, in which you can pretty much buy everything you need on a daily basis.”

Background

In 1878 “The Strawberry Line” trainline opened and ran through the village and served the strawberry fields of the area. The line was closed in 1963, the land sold off and the buildings demolished or converted. The station house is one such property having been originally the Station-Masters house. In the current house one of the living rooms was originally the ticket office.
