About the property:

Manor Farm Cottage is an attractive double fronted nineteenth century stone property positioned on the edge of Stowey and bordering open countryside. Recently restored, it is now a well presented family home offering four bedrooms, with one en-suite, with scope to extend and create a fifth. Two reception rooms flank the wide front door, and a modern kitchen/dining room opens onto the garden. A useful study, utility and cloakroom are also on the ground floor, and an outbuilding in the garden could be converted to create a work from home space.

About the inside:

A wide front door opens into the hallway with a sitting room on either side. Both dual aspect rooms have exposed beams and woodburning stoves, and shuttered windows letting in plenty of natural light. The hallway then leads down to the fully fitted shaker style kitchen. A gas and electric range is set into the inglenook, and pale units topped with granite work surfaces have built in appliances. A generous breakfast island offers plenty of extra work space, and there is still room for a large dining table and chairs. Doors lead to the covered rear porch as well as the side of the property. Off the rear hall is a useful cloakroom, utility room and small study.

Upstairs two double bedrooms are positioned at the front and the principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room. Two large single bedrooms to the rear share a modern family bathroom with a freestanding bath. The layout has been configured to allow the possibility of extending to create a fifth bedroom.

About the outside:

A five bar gate allows driveway parking for several vehicles and leads round to the single garage and rear porch. Mainly laid to lawn, the raised garden wraps around the side and rear of the cottage, and borders open countryside. A stone outbuilding could be converted into a home office or studio. To the front, a low stone wall has a gate with a path leading to the oak porch.

About the area:

Manor Farm Cottage is situated on the outskirts of the rural village of Stowey. The village has always proved popular due to its location and easy access to the region's three major cities. The neighbouring village of Bishop Sutton has a village shop and post office catering for everyday needs, a restaurant, a public house, farm shop and a lovely modern village hall as well as many clubs and societies including a thriving tennis club with 5 hard courts.

The village of Chew Magna, which is a mere 2.5 miles and has a good range of local shops including a well-stocked supermarket, master butcher, coffee shop, travel agent, post office and a bank. There are also four public houses within Chew Magna, one of which (The Pony and Trap) has been awarded a Michelin star.

The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing, and nature study amenities. A visit to Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake is highly recommended, as this modern tearoom/fish restaurant is owned by the same family as The Pony and Trap. The Mendip hills, well known for their limestone features, provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.

The regional centre of Bristol is 10 miles to the north whilst the Heritage City of Bath is 13 miles to the north east. The Cathedral City of Wells offers further facilities, including a popular twice weekly farmers market, and is 14 miles to the south. High speed rail services to London Paddington are available from Bristol and Bath whilst Bristol International Airport is 20 minutes (8 miles) away.
