Approximately 3.4 acres of pasture directly adjacent to the cottage with appealing rural views back to Langport. One boundary is several hundred feet of glorious riverbank with fishing rights. The grass is good and the field well fenced but in a typical year the ground is too wet for stock.
The cottage lies roughly central to its gardens which are on all four sides, bounded by walls or riverbank. It is divided into several zones which include courtyards and lawn. There is an attractive and substantial timber summerhouse.
Garage and parking
20' 7'' x 10' 3'' (6.27m x 3.12m)
Up and over door, power, light, pedestrian door, driveway parking for one car. To the front of the cottage is a little used drove, it provides parking space for many more vehicles.
This is a wonderful property but is government designated as lying in Flood Zone 3b. It did flood twice in 2013 and 2014. Lloyds insure the property but will not provide flood cover for new business, however Higos Somerton advise that they expect to be able to provide cover 'as long as there is not a history of subsidence' ... our clients assure us that there is not.
Since flooding remedial measures include a local bund, flood resistant external doors and removable barriers to seal the drive etc. Our clients have a contract for annual maintenance of these protective devices.
Our clients believe that their ownership extends to the centre of the River Yeo and that they have fishing rights. The Environment Agency have a right of way to access the bank for ongoing maintenance.
A footpath goes past this property, there is a footpath along the riverbank but it is separated from the garden by a hedge so has little impact.
As is often the case with an old drove, its ownership is not known but this has little relevance to this property as long as field access is left free for farmers

The town of Langport has a range of facilities fulfilling most day to day needs, with a variety of shops including a Tesco store, medical centre, various churches and schools for all age ranges including the well-known Huish Academy. Langport itself lies only about 8 miles north of the A303 which connects to the national motorway network, and is well placed for the larger towns of Taunton with its main-line railway station (London/Paddington), Bridgwater and Yeovil with their main-line railway stations (Waterloo and Paddington). The Dorset coast is about 25 miles.
From English Homes Langport office turn right and right again up The Hill. Once through the hanging chapel take the next right signed to Muchelney. Shortly after the entrance to ABP you go over a bridge, turn immediately right into the drove.
As well as our commission or fees we may also receive a reward, fee or benefit (known as a Referral Fee) from ancillary service providers for recommending their service to you where we believe you may benefit from using their services, a discount is one of these benefits. Adrian Stables conveyancers pay us £100 + VAT, Ashfords a similar figure on average. Cooper Associates/Maywood Mortgages on average pay us around £80. The good relationships and communications that we enjoy with these providers are a benefit to all parties and in the case of conveyancers can result in discounted fees due to the volume of extra work. We do not earn fees from insurers, surveyors, tradesmen, EPC providers etc.
