The main house has rendered elevations under tiled roofs and affords two reception rooms together with a kitchen/breakfast room with four bedrooms and bathroom above, a bathroom is also afforded on the ground floor. The house retains many character features including exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. The annexe has been created in more recent years and is of local sandstone construction again under tiled roofs and affords three bedroom living accommodation with two reception rooms.

The surrounding gardens form a delightful setting and are well established affording good all year round interest.

The village is very well regarded in the locality. The property itself occupies a slightly elevated situation and some superb views are afforded particularly in an easterly direction over the surrounding area and towards the Quantock Hills which are designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a host of attractive footpaths within the locality that provide easy access into the surrounding countryside and another notable feature is the West Somerset Steam Railway Line that runs from Taunton to Minehead which passes nearby.

Terraced gardens lie beyond, the majority of which lie to the rear and one side of the main house and are generally at a slightly higher level. The gardens are relatively extensive and are set within established boundaries. Primarily laid to lawn they include several mature trees including a Blue Cedar, a superb walnut and several cherry trees together with many well established shrubs. Some superb views are afforded over the surrounding area and in particular towards the Quantock Hills which lie in the semi distance.
