About the area
Being close to both Bruton and Castle Cary, Lamyatt benefits from the amenities of both towns with their independent shops and galleries, weekly markets, attractive pubs and restaurants. Hauser & Wirth Somerset, the world-class gallery and multi-purpose arts centre in Bruton, lends a cosmopolitan touch to the life of the area. Lamyatt sits in open countryside bordering the local landmark Creech Hill, also known as Bullbeggar Hill. It is one of the oldest inhabited settlements in Britain with a recorded history predating Roman times. It has the magical air of a hidden, ‘secret’ village but combines rural peace and quiet with a rich and interesting community life.
With its beautiful 15th century church and architect-designed village hall, Lamyatt offers cheerful and entertaining events for all ages. These include a village fête, which draws in people from outside the village, and, in the newly refurbished hall, offers entertainment including professional live music, theatre and arts events and a film and supper club as well as regular yoga and Pilates classes. There is an apple-picking day every autumn from which the village cooperative makes and sells its own Bullbeggar Cider. Each summer, Lamyatt stages one of Shakespeare’s plays-in the open air at Speeds Farm- professionally produced and presented by the acclaimed Festival Players Theatre Company. The event attracts audiences of 300 or more from far and wide and raises significant funds for the hall and church. Street, Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet and Sherborne are all within easy reach and offer a wide range of facilities.
Sandstones has a mix of local stone and brick elevations under a tiled roof. The house requires some modernisation but offers fantastic potential thanks to the splendid location and space offered.
