Versatility and character are the key features of this lovely cottage which is situated in the area known as Whitley Head which lies on the south western outskirts of the village of Banwell and is a hamlet comprising a number of individual country houses, cottages and farms. The property would suit those with equestrian interests, as well as those keen to embrace country living or run a smallholding, as a small paddock of approximately 2/3rds of an acre comes with the property and is situated approximately 100m from the cottage. Bridleways and footpaths are immediately accessible, with access to the West Mendip Way. The property could easily be configured to suit living with a dependent relative/teenager as there is a downstairs bedroom (currently used as a dining room), adjacent to the cloakroom and utility – this would lend itself to forming annexe accommodation.
The property enjoys a rural location, with the nearest village being Banwell where amenities include a post office, grocery stores, take away and several public houses, church, village hall, bowling green, library and doctors surgery. There is close proximity to the Webbington Country Club and The Club at Cadbury House in Congresbury with its award winning health club, spa and hotel. The M5 motorway connection is nearby at St. Georges, giving easy access to Bristol and the M4 London plus railway stations at Weston-super-Mare. There is a primary school and a good comprehensive school at nearby Churchill. Weston-super-Mare offers a large range of shopping facilities, a sports centre, golf courses, and theatre and cinema.
