This Grade II listed Somerset longhouse and farmhouse is constructed of brick elevations under a slate tiled roof. Period features include traditional flagstone floors, inglenook fireplaces and various casement windows with seats.

Principal reception rooms include the more formal drawing room and dining room while the sitting room provides more informal family space and catches the afternoon sun. The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house and contains an inglenook in the breakfast area; from here the back staircase leads up to the master bedroom.

Upstairs there are four first floor bedrooms in total including the guest suite and two further double bedrooms.
