Introduction - Gothic House and Phoenix Cottages are in a rural hamlet in the heart of the Somerset Levels. With a substantial five bedroom house and four high quality cottages this is an excellent opportunity to take over an existing lifestyle business. The property has established gardens and to the rear is a 3 acre field (approx.) with stables.

Location - The hamlet of Thorney, home to John Leach's Muchelney Pottery, is in a peaceful location in the Somerset Levels. For day to day facilities there is a community shop at Kingsbury Episcopi (1 mile) whilst Langport (3 miles) has a wider range of shops. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset (15 miles), provides a more comprehensive range of amenities including excellent schooling in both the state and private sectors. The town also benefits from a mainline railway station with regular trains to London Paddington, access to the M5, a racecourse and The County Cricket Ground.

Somerset has many visitor attractions including the National Trust properties of Barrington Court, the fabulous Montacute House and Tintinhull Garden. Clarks Village, the well-known outlet shopping centre, is 12 miles. The Somerset Levels provide the perfect conditions for willow growing and at Coates English Willow Centre (10 miles) visitors can make their own basket. The surrounding area is relatively flat and ideal for walking and cycling with the River Parrett trail offering a beautiful trail through this unspoilt countryside. The peaceful location and wetlands mean the area is rich in wildlife and one of the best places in the UK for birdwatching. For local culture and fine food try the many well-known towns and villages including Glastonbury (14 miles) Langport (3 miles), Somerton (6miles) and Wells (20 miles).
