The bespoke kitchen has been well designed with a stylish island creating a breakfast bar, there is space for a kitchen table and soft chairs. Trio sliding doors open onto the sunny terrace where the beautiful views can be enjoyed - of Chew Valley, Burledge Hill Fort, oak woodlands and Dutchy organic pastureland with SSRI protection and all within the Mendip and Chew Valley AONB catchment.

Outbuildings & Grounds
The gardens are well kept with many mature plants and trees. There is a large paved area to the rear of the house where you can sit and enjoy the fabulous views. As well as the barn which has been converted there is scope to convert the adjoining stone barn to make this a separate two/three bedroom property, subject to relevant planning permissions. There are a further range of attractive stone outbuildings, all of which have many uses.
