Nestled in the pretty village of Moorlinch, this delightful detached property is steeped in history and has been finished to a high standard with loving attention to detail throughout.
This charming property enjoys a rural village location and has been in the same family since the 16th century. The owner has lovingly restored the former milling barn using oak construction sourced from the owner’s woodland and the property has a stylish, contemporary finish throughout. Situated in the grounds of the owner’s property, a warm welcome awaits you, yet your privacy is assured. Those who enjoy spending time in nature and indulging in outdoor pursuits such as country walks, bird watching and cycling, will love the fact that the property is just a short distance from the Shapwick Nature Reserve and RSPB Greylake Nature Reserve. Less than ten miles away is the famous Glastonbury Tor where you can walk up to the top and admire the amazing views. The town of Glastonbury itself makes a wonderful place for a day trip, with its atmospheric ruined abbey, legend-steeped Chalice Well Gardens, its interesting range of unusual shops and independent eateries. For a bit of retail therapy, take a trip to Clarks Village Outlet Shopping in nearby Street which is within 7 miles. Or for water babies, head to Street’s Greenbank heated outdoor pool just around the corner from the shopping outlet. For fishing enthusiasts, fishing can be arranged at nearby Kings Sedgemoor Drain (permit required). Other places of interest in the area include the wide sandy beach at Burnham-on-Sea, the cathedral city of Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves.
