The Almonry and The Almonry Barn are a collection of stone buildings under tiled roofs with parts believed to be in the region of 800 years old.

Designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, The Barn, featured on Rightmove,  holds a treasure trove of period features, with exposed beams and trusses along with original exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and deep windowsills all adding to this impressive space.

The Studio is attached to The Barn and has been sympathetically converted into a spacious two-bedroom residence, with an open plan kitchen and sitting room, with wood burning stove.

Stairs ascend to a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. A galleried landing then leads in the other direction to a second bedroom.

Whilst the residential accommodation is currently divided into two adjoining residences, it could very easily be converted back into one impressive single property.

Somerset County Gazette:

A significant feature of this Grade II listed property is the hugely impressive open plan sitting room and kitchen with its vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses, frames and stonework, again enhanced with whitewashed walls.

There is a great sense of space and light here along with a keen eye on interior design. The kitchen is in a fitting shaker style.

Somerset County Gazette:

The second residential home is part of the same building but cleverly sectioned off. This additional residence has been carefully and sympathetically renovated in a similar style, ensuring that sense of space and light prevail.

A large open plan kitchen and sitting room form the hub of the house. The kitchen is located at one end of this large space with an impressive Inglenook fireplace taking centre stage at the other end.

The grounds, includes well stocked borders, mulberry, pear and birch trees, clematis, foxgloves, roses and irises to name a few, enjoy lovely views of the nearby church tower of St Peter and St Paul as well as the nearby historical Abbey.

From the driveway a timber gate leads to a further gravelled area in front of the studio, bounded by a stone wall. A further gate leads to a cobbled path in front of The Barn and onto the house. The houses both enjoy separate gardens and are mainly bounded by stone walling.

Somerset County Gazette:

An orchard that includes cider apple, pear, plum and damson trees is otherwise laid to lawn and sweeps around the side and rear of The Barn.

Climbing roses, twisted willow trees, lime trees, topiary box balls, gravelled pathways and paved seating areas make the most of this spot, which is where the superb views across the neighbouring countryside towards Langport can be enjoyed.

Somerset County Gazette:

Various sheds and outbuildings, including a former pigsty and fabulous Shepherds Hut, provide further interest throughout the grounds. Thought to be circa 2.8 acres in total.

The property has recently been restored and is currently being run as a high-end wedding venue, Bed and Breakfast and residential home.
