The farmhouse dates back to the early 17th century and sits alongside the River Brue, rumoured to have originally been part of the Glastonbury Abbey Estate complete with it's own chapel, unfortunately no longer standing. During the war it was also part of England's 3rd line of defence and two pill boxes remain standing in testament to the moto 'Be prepared'!
In more recent years the river bank has played a major role in the rural economy as part of the Somerset Steam Railway line, hauling milk from the village factory until the 1970's when the milk trains ceased running; indeed the original Bason Bridge station platform remains as part of the river walk.
Set in twelve acres on the Somerset Levels, the farm offers a tranquil getaway for families, coarse fishers and those seeking cultural pleasures as well as equestrian services from saddle fitting to horse ware to stylish clothing.
There are beautiful paddocks, an outdoor school ideal for trying out your new or reflocked saddle and a tranquil river walk for all to enjoy.
