Somerset farmhouse with vineyard, orchard and meadows

Wooton Vineyard is a Grade II listed property believed to date back to the 17th century, with later additions. The house is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof with stone copings and cut stone mullion window surrounds on the front elevation.

A number of interesting period features include beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, a large inglenook fireplace and original window seats. The house has been modernised to make an excellent family property.

The reception rooms are welcoming spaces suited to entertaining while the kitchen/breakfast room is an integral part of the family house – the majority of rooms on the ground floor have flagstone floors.

The first floor houses the master bedroom suite and the principal guest bedroom, as well as a further bedroom and the guest bathroom. Two further large bedrooms are situated on the second floor, with spacious landings and beamed ceilings.

Outside, the principal gardens lie to the south and are laid to lawn. A stream runs along the far end of the gardens; two bridges give access to the land beyond. The small organic vineyard is well fenced and lies on a sloping field across the lane.

The main land comprises summer flowering meadows and areas of permanent pasture, as well as an orchard. To the north east is woodland with a large wooden gazebo with a chimney and a fireplace. There is also a zip wire, rope swings and a 40ft pirate ship.

The barns are used mostly for storage and there is stabling with paddock fencing. The grounds come to just over 30 acres.

Wooton Vineyard is located on its own land in a valley on the edge of the village of North Wooton in Somerset. Wells is under three miles, and has a wide range of amenities and restaurants while road communications are good, and there is a regular train service from Castle Cary (12 miles) to London Paddington.
