The House

The Old Rectory is an extremely attractive, classical Georgian House approached by way of a gated driveway which leads to a gravel parking area in front of the property.

The house is Grade II listed and well positioned within the village, it benefits from great privacy from the enclosed gardens and high hedges surrounding the house. The Old Rectory is a grand house on a manageable scale, within a layout that lends itself perfectly to a modern family home.

The impressive entrance hall displays the grand Georgian elements of the house, with a flagstone floor and galleried staircase leading to the first floor. The principal reception rooms are accessed from the hall, including a superb formal drawing room with a marble surround fireplace and vast sash windows looking out over the gardens.

The older part of the house contains the panelled dining room, as well as a fantastically designed Smallbone kitchen with granite work surfaces and four oven AGA set into an inglenook fireplace with its original bread oven. There is an additional pastry kitchen next to the main kitchen, this is also extremely well designed by Smallbone, with a central island and preparation areas.

The breakfast room has a doorway leading out to a sheltered court yard area for outdoor entertaining and the rear hall gives access to the cellars.

The impressive Georgian proportions continue to the first floor, most notably in the master bedroom suite which features a dressing room and en suite bathroom as well as a floor to ceiling sash window giving far reaching views over the surrounding stunning Somerset countryside. There are a further two bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor and a large dressing room/playroom at one end. The second floor has a fourth bedroom and bathroom, and there are another two bedrooms and a bathroom on the third floor. 


The Old Rectory is approached via a long gated, gravelled driveway. The house is surrounded by enclosed gardens, mostly consisting of large areas of lawn and a mixture of specimen trees and shrubs. The gardens are a wonderful area for children as they are fully enclosed and give the house a true sense of seclusion whilst being in the centre of the village.


The Old Rectory is situated in the middle of the sought after village of Hinton Blewett, placed evenly between Bath and Bristol.

The property is surrounded by private gardens and the elevated position of the house allows for superb views over the Mendip Hills. Hinton Blewett is a stunning Somerset village with an active community, a wonderful church and a well-regarded public house ‘The Ring O’ Bells’. 

Bristol and Bath are both about 13 miles from The Old Rectory and offer extensive shopping and recreational facilities. Road connections are good, with access to the M4 motorway. Regular train services to London Paddington can be found from both Bristol Temple Meads (from 104 minutes) and Bath Spa (from 84 minutes). Bristol Airport is less than 10 miles away and offers flights to various international destinations.

There are a number of golf courses nearby including Farrington Park and Fosseway Golf Club. There is national hunt racing at Bath racecourse, and hunting with the Mendip Farmers as well as fishing and sailing on the Chew Valley Lake. Bath and Bristol provide a range of sporting activities including cricket and rugby, and Castle Combe circuit is about 28 miles to the north east.


There is a wide range of good educational establishments at all levels in the local area from the public and private sectors.
