DESCRIPTION The Old Library has been part of the fabric of Wrington village life for centuries. Dating from 1829 it is reputed to have been a village reading room, a sweet shop and a bric-a-brac shop in its former days. Now it is a versatile and convenient terraced family home, offering accommodation of real period character, sympathetically combining modern amenities with period charm. It occupies an unspoilt position in the heart of the conservation area, great for the centre of the village, overlooking the village green and within a level walk of schools and amenities.

The Old Library really must be seen internally as it is a bit of 'tardis', offering a versatile and sizeable square footage of almost 1300 sq ft, rare in a property of this age. It briefly comprises; entrance hallway, living room with open fire, wonderfully cosy 23' kitchen/dining room with wood burning stove, play room/possible downstairs bedroom, downstairs WC, three good sized bedrooms, a very well appointed family bathroom and a large landing which has been used as a study area. The property is warmed by gas central heating and as mentioned offers numerous character features including the aforementioned open fire and woodburner, sash windows, shutters, window seats and some flagstones. Outside the property has a sun trap of a paved private rear courtyard, perfect for barbecuing and a table and chairs, with some raised herb beds and climbing plants. Here you will find an attached good sized stone built store where the washing machine is kept, with a Belfast sink, power and light.

The village of Wrington is enduringly popular, not least for the fantastic community spirit and schools of quality, but also because of the amenities it offers; its convenient access to transport routes (for Bristol, Bath, Weston-super-Mare and the M5 motorway), and for lovers of walking, with some of the most beautiful and varied countryside anyone could wish to find.

The Old Library really is a fantastic opportunity in this sought after North Somerset Village, and its fantastic character and space mixed with its convenience for the modern family make it a real opportunity for the right buyer. We would recommend an early viewing without delay therefore.

Our vendor says ... We moved to the Old Library because we wanted a good sized family home in a convenient spot in the village. It didn't take long for us to make a decision on the first viewing, as it felt warm, spacious and inviting with enough space for our growing family and a plethora of character features. The focal point kitchen/diner with wood burner, the good sized bedrooms, the vast amount of storage and the convenient spot have proved invaluable having two young children. And literally, you are a level walk from everything you might need in the village!

We have noticed ... The Old Library has been a fantastic part of Wrington history for many a year and the beauty of it is that it offers such a versatile and sizeable, yet character packed living space. Not always the case in a period cottage! I suppose one or two may feel that although the courtyard garden is perfectly big enough for sunbathing, a barbecue, a table and chairs and some raised beds, it does not have a standard lawned garden. Our answer to that would be that you are overlooking the village green, you are five minutes from a fabulous recreation ground and within a few minutes you can be walking in open fields. A gem of a cottage in a highly sought after village spot and highly recommended for an early look!

SITUATION Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington ( is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset. Picturesque with a lengthy and interesting history, it benefits from facilities usually reserved for a larger town, including two pubs (one with an excellent restaurant), church and a chapel, a primary school (awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted), post office, public transport, petrol station, pharmacy, satellite doctor's surgery, dentist, coffee shop, grocery shop off licence/convenience shop and even two florist/gift shops (one in the village centre and one on the outskirts). Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (, also recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (with transport for local children provided daily), and which also benefits from a modern sports complex open to the general public. Further schools, both state and private, are at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and the Chew Valley. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles. The village itself is within commuting distance of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway station at Yatton.
