A charming country property in a quiet, peaceful area near the villages of Wookey and Godney and within a short drive of Wells


Wells 3 miles, Wookey 1 mile, Godney 2.5 miles, Wedmore 6 miles (all approx.).


A charming, detached rural property enjoying a tranquil, quiet setting between two small villages and just three miles from Wells. Easy access to Wells and Wedmore and to the beautiful, surrounding countryside. Hill Farm includes a comfortable home with an artist’s studio and a sunny southeast facing aspect. It has plenty of living space with a hall, sitting room, dining room, snug, kitchen/breakfast room, utility cloakroom, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and an en suite shower room. Adjacent is the 24ft. x 19 ft. studio, perfect for its current use but also suitable for more residential space or other occupations such as a home office, workshop, etc. Outside there’s plenty of parking garden sheds, a summerhouse (used as a further studio), polytunnel and gardens. Simply a fabulous home.


Castle Lane is a quiet country lane between the popular villages of Wookey and Godney. Both have good pubs (good food) and Wookey has a well-regarded primary school, church, and a village hub/cafe. In addition, it has a friendly, welcoming and active community. Footpaths Close by are access points to miles of public footpaths which give access to a network of paths through the beautiful Somerset countryside.


Hill farm is an appealing property in a wonderfully rural setting alongside a country lane with virtually no through traffic. The has comfortable accommodation facing southeast into its garden and beyond onto the adjoining farmland and farmstead. Most of the rooms have this outlook and most of the ground floor rooms have double French doors into the garden. The accommodation is comfortable with mainly tiled or oak flooring and an excellent solid fuel wood pellet heating system together with wood burning stoves.


There’s an entrance hall with a door from the lane but as with most country properties the entrance mainly used is through the garden to the kitchen. Double French doors lead in, and the room works as a kitchen and dining room with plenty of space for coats and boots and table and chairs. The kitchen area has handmade, bespoke oak units - floor wall and an island, oak worksurfaces a double ceramic sink, and wall tiling. Appliances include a dishwasher and a range cooker. Leading off the kitchen is utility cloakroom. This has a Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine, worktop and a wc.


Also off the kitchen is the sitting room. This has double French doors, timber panelling, a deep alcove and an open fire. Beyond is the hallway and a snug with an alcove cupboard and bookshelves. Returning to the kitchen a door leads into a large dining room with a high vaulted and beamed ceiling and a cast iron spiral staircase. This leads to a bedroom with under eaves storage and also an en suite shower room. The staircase in the hall leads to the first floor. The main bedroom has a range of fitted cupboards, and there are two other bedrooms (one also having cupboards), and a bathroom – the bath having a shower and shower screen.


Immediately adjoining the house, and again with a southeast aspect, is a large studio. This has a high vaulted ceiling, a concrete floor and contains the boiler, pellet feed store and the water cylinder. The room has two sets of double French doors to the garden.


A drive leads in at the side of the house and there’s plenty of parking space. There are gardens at each end of the house with mature trees including willow, beech, birch, figs, apple and conifers. To the northern side are a timber shed, greenhouse and a summerhouse used as a studio, and which opens onto a lawn with an adjacent vegetable area and polytunnel. At the other end of the house is an orchard area with a lily pond and a shed (needing repair).

A few extra comments. Mortgages – we can help. Bridging loans – We can help.

Sometimes a bridging loan can solve problems and remove stress. Call us for information on any of these points
