A FORMER country pub near Taunton is now on the market.

The Nags Head in Ash Road, Thornfalcon, which closed in 2019, is up for sale for £300,000.

Here is how Rightmove described the property on its website: “On a busy A road near a motorway junction and a large town.

“Historic property with substantial accommodation. Function room/skittle alley. Large car park and garden.

“The Nags Head occupies a landmark trading position standing beside the westbound A358 dual carriageway which links the A303 to the county town of Taunton at junction 25 of the M5 motorway.

“Thornfalcon village straddles the A358. It is a historic village with notable period properties and a nearby campsite which would prove beneficial to trade.

“The A358 is one of the busiest A roads in the West Country with a high volume of local and commuter traffic, much of which is en route to the M5/Taunton, both of which are approximately two miles distant.”
