Greenaleigh Farm, which once formed part of Dunster Castle estate, was once the main dairy farm supplying milk for Minehead. The original farmhouse was probably extended in the 19th century and has now been divided to provide the main living accommodation in one area and a holiday wing in the original farmhouse, which could easily be incorporated into the main house again. The main house currently has four bedrooms, sitting room, dining room, study and kitchen/breakfast room as well as a family bathroom.
The original farm buildings provide storage and parking at the current time whilst one of the original barns has been converted into a detached holiday cottage with its own garden and seating areas.
The land around the house and cottages includes gardens and terraces and the vendors have enjoyed the tenancy of the adjoining 30 acres of National Trust ground which they hope to transfer to the purchaser of Greenaleigh Farm.
