Wootton House is a superb country house on the edge of the unspoiled hamlet of Butleigh Wootton on the Somerset levels.
Constructed in the 18th cent., this striking house sits on a 1,000 acre estate comprising gardens, woods, parkland and working farms.
The house is comfortable, elegant, and well loved.
You enter through a large front hall with wood floors and oak panelling which leads to the equally impressive back hall with twin pianos; a handsome Steinway grand and an upright.
The house has two reception rooms; a sitting room with a marble fireplace and fine paintings and a lovely drawing room with damask wallpaper, an open fire and French windows to the front garden.
Overlooking the rear garden is a large formal dining room where the long oak dining table sits before an enormous Jacobean-style ornamental fireplace - perfect for dinner parties or that special occasion.
The kitchen is huge and very well equipped - there's everything you'll need here to cater for your group, including a 4-door Aga and pantry, and for something a bit special, professional catering can be arranged.
The Abbot’s Room, an enormous games room with table tennis, children's snooker table, darts, TV and PlayStation 2 will ensure that there's always plenty to do, even on those not so sunny days.
On the first floor is a library area with window seats and eight bedrooms, four double rooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and two four poster beds, and four twin rooms, one with an en suite shower room.
Outside is a large mature garden where you can play croquet on the lawn, a hard tennis court and climbing frames, slides and swings for the children.
Famous for its annual music festival and tor, the nearby town of Glastonbury has all the amenities you could need, and is well worth a visit.
The beautiful cathedral city of Wells, Wookey Hole Caves and historic Bath, are also within easy reach.
With so much to see and do, Wootton House is sure to be a real hit with all the family.
