Full description

Set on the edge of the Mendip Hills, the land in which White House Farm stands was first mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and since then it has been over time used as a combination of arable, pastoral and dairy farming, right up until very recently. Currently the owners are retaining a small section of barns for personal use as well as a horse livery via a new separate driveway.
Sitting on the edge of Loxton Village and within the triangle of Bristol, Taunton & Weston-Super-Mare is this Grade II listed farm house, which offers some fabulous accommodation for any growing family, this is all before we come to the annexe & the detached holiday cottage.
As you pull onto the main driveway which splits to the left and right, the right goes to the front of the annexe and the cottage, the left hand side goes past the front of this grand property and front garden which in turn leads to the rear of the farm, with parking and covered parking area.
