The property

... about 3 miles from Ilminster, within a great country estate, the Gingerbread House is thatched, hexagonal, Grade II listed. On the edge of woods, about 300 yards down a farm track, 100 yards from farm buildings and about 300 yards from the busy A358 road (visible), it was built c1800 as the gardener's home. Good-sized, secluded lawn (table/chairs, barbecue), leading to woods and fields. You are welcome to walk the 500 acres of farmland, park and woodland, by arrangement.


Leaded gothic windows, pine-shuttered. Studded front door; little hall; two living rooms, one with open fireplace and TV/DVD; small step down to kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); downstairs loo (washing machine, tumble drier). Steep, curved stairs (rope rail) up to three bedrooms – a double, a twin, and 3 steps down to another twin (limited clothes-hanging space) and big bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Lovely walking in the surrounding woods and fields.
