Wellington is just 8 miles to the south east and has a Waitrose store and a good range of shopping facilities. Taunton lies about 14 miles to the east and provides all the facilities expected of a county town. The property is ideally situated on a quiet country lane close to both the Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills.
Believed to be built in the 1940's Meadow Farm is a most interesting detached house. A wonderful opportunity for those looking for a project, the property is in need of modernisation and renovation throughout and could lend itself well to an extension if required, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Outside, the property is approached over its own driveway with an in and out entrance onto the country lane. Off the drive there is a stable block comprising three loose boxes, several outbuildings including an open fronted hay barn, useful storage sheds and garaging.
