Property description & features


Fantastic Small Holding/Equestrian Facility nestled in a quiet rural location at the foot of the Quantock Hills with immediate walking/mountain biking/horse riding opportunities in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In all about 1.5 acres.

Guide Price £535,000 - £565,000. Aley cottage is an attached 3 storey period property retaining much of its original character and charm whilst also benefitting from modern amenities such as oil fired under floor heating. The accommodation comprises, on the ground floor - entrance hall, large kitchen/dining/family room, snug/office, utility room, rear hall and bathroom. On the first floor there are 2 generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom and well equipped family bathroom. The second floor was converted in 2012 and provides a large storage area together with shower room which could be used as a further large Ensuite Bedroom/Living area subject to change of use under an application for Permitted Development - see the agent for further details. Planning Permission was previously granted for a ground floor extension, to create a separate large reception room, and this could be re-applied for, if desired.

Externally the property is accessed via attractive timber double gates with a path leading through the garden to the front door. Further up the lane, larger wooden double gates open into ample parking and turning space with a path leading through the garden to the front of the house. The garden provides a high level of privacy and has been well landscaped to offer areas of lawn, rose arches, patio, pergola, raised vegetable bed and a former stone piggery with potential for a variety of uses (subject to planning). Adjacent to the parking area there are 2 stables and a tack room (with light, power and water), detached timber workshop/store and an open fronted barn which could also be suitable for conversion to an Annexe if desired, STP. Beyond the yard there is a further enclosed area, currently used as a chicken run, but also suitable for other uses such as additional garden or parking. Directly opposite the front of the house, a track gives right of way over a neighbouring field to the rest of the land. Here can be found a further large hardstanding yard area with the benefit of timber field shelter, 2 stables and attractive timber hay store. The paddock beyond has been divided into several areas of grazing and is bordered mainly by woodland, making it very sheltered. The whole plot is thought to extend to c1.5 acres.

Agents note: Due to potential development opportunities an overage clause may be applied of 25% for 25 years.

The property is situated in the heart of Aley, a picturesque hamlet nestled at the foot of the Quantock Hills AONB which offers miles of fantastic walking, mountain biking and horse riding. All of this can be undertaken from the doorstep with no need to encounter through roads unless desired. The hamlet also offers Quantock Lodge which has a swimming pool, gym and sports hall facilities where local hiking groups also meet. The Great Wood, a family favourite fun space is close by as well as the Foxy Bean café which attracts horse riders and mountain bikers as well as the general public catering to many dietary requirements and offering a stop off paddock for horses. Nether Stowey (approx. 1 mile) offers a primary school, 3 pubs and a selection of small businesses - 3 village shops including post office / cafe, library, butchers/fishmonger and a health centre. Coleridge Cottage, a National Trust property is in the village which is also the start of the Coleridge Way, a 36 mile walk passing through some of Somerset and Devon's most breath taking scenery and ending up in Porlock. The area generally is renowned for its wide range of country pursuits. The market town of Bridgwater is 8 miles away and offers a wide range of retail and commercial facilities. Taunton (10 miles), the county town, is renowned for its excellent schools and has fast road and rail links to London (1h40), Bristol and Exeter.

Places of interest

    Established in 2013, Red Deer country is an owner run independent firm combining the very best technology and software with traditional values and genuine local knowledge. The internet has revolutionised the way estate agents work and has led to the establishment of many online agents – an undoubted cost saving but often operating from far flung corners of the country they lack any local knowledge or personal touch. Red Deer Country cover the whole of West Somerset but, unlike many traditional agents, we have just one central office meaning we can keep our overheads down and our fees reasonable.

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
