The House

The Old Wagon and Horses, as the name suggested is a former Public House dating from the mid 1800’s. The property was purchased from Georges Bristol Beers in 1958 prior to their take over by Courage, Barclay & Simonds in the 1960’s.

The property has remained within the same family since it was purchased from George’s Bristol Beers and as such, it is available on the open market for the first time in nearly 60 years.

Although we are unable to provide liquid refreshment to any visitor to this former hostelry, we are able to offer a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial and versatile home.

Upon arrival at the property the front door opens to the reception hall, from here access is granted to the dining room with its attractive fireplace, the sitting room, again with a fireplace and stairs leading to the first floor. Further ground floor rooms in the main section of the house include the former cellar, now being utilised as a utility room, there is also the kitchen breakfast room and a conservatory. On the first floor you will find three double bedrooms, a shower room and a large landing area, this would make an attractive first floor sitting room/study or indeed it could be split to make an additional bedroom if required.

Attached to the main house is a two bedroom annexe. The annexe has its own front door, however, access can also be gained via the conservatory at the rear of the main house. Within the annexe there is a sitting room, kitchen/dining room and a bathroom on the ground floor and two double bedrooms on the first floor. The annexe would ideally suit those looking to accommodate a dependant relative or alternatively it could generate a rental income.


The rear garden is a particular feature of the property, a substantial patio area adjoins the rear of the house, beyond the patio area is a generous garden, predominately laid to lawn with mature and established trees. Also within the garden is a garage/workshop. Attached to the house is an additional workshop which is accessed from the rear garden. At the front of the property the driveway leads to an additional
 garage/workshop with rooms above, this would ideally suit those looking to work from home.


There is a wide range of educational establishments at all levels in the area from the public and private sectors. There is a primary school and pre-school in Farmborough and local secondary schools include Norton Hill Academy, Midsomer Norton which is highly regarded.

There is also a good selection of private schools in the locality including Wells Cathedral School, Downside, Millfield and All Hallows.
