Idyllic farmhouse in Somerset

Adscombe Farm is a substantial period Somerset farmhouse with an integrated annexe located in the gorgeous foothills of the Quantocks. This period house has charming accommodation including a large, light drawing room with an open brick fireplace, and an attractive farmhouse kitchen with a Rayburn and a pantry.

Upstairs are four bedrooms (all with Victorian fireplaces) and a shower room; two further staircases lead up to three further bedrooms on the second floor.

The annexe adjoins the main house on the ground and first floors and comprises kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and two bedrooms, both en-suite – this can either be part of the main house or separate accommodation altogether.

The farm buildings have full planning permission for conversion to one five-bedroom, one three-bedroom and one two-bedroom house arranged around a courtyard.

Outside, the gardens are lawned with areas of mature trees, and flower and shrub beds. A stream runs into a pretty pond, while a field and an orchard lie to the side. These grounds in Lot 1 with the farmhouse come to around eight-and-a-half acres – the property can be sold as a whole or in three lots (lots two and three being the farm buildings and the rest of the land).

Adscombe Farm is situated in a secluded valley and is currently used as a productive stock farm. The house is just outside the hamlet of Over Stowey: Bridgewater is nine miles and Taunton 11 miles.

The guide price is £1.645m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01392 229 405 or visit
