Wootton House is a magnificent country house on the Somerset levels, on the outskirts of the pristine village of Butleigh Wootton. This beautiful home, built in the 18th century, lies on a 1,000-acre estate with gardens, woodlands, parkland, and functioning farms. With eight bedrooms, an open fire in the drawing room, a marble fireplace in the living room, a kitchen with a four-door Aga, and a games area, the property is cosy, stylish, and well-loved.
You enter via a big entrance hall with wood floors and oak panelling that leads to an equally stunning back hall with twin pianos, one a handsome Steinway grand and the other an upright.
A spacious formal dining room overlooks the back garden, with a long oak dining table in front of a massive Jacobean-style ornamental fireplace – ideal for dinner parties or that special event.
The kitchen is large and well-equipped, with everything you’ll need to cater for your group, including a 4-door Aga and pantry, and professional catering may be hired for something more special.
Even on rainy days, the Abbot’s Area, a spacious games room with table tennis, a children’s snooker table, darts, TV, and PlayStation 2, will keep you entertained.
A library with window seats and eight bedrooms are located on the first floor, including 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, there is a huge mature garden with lawn croquet, a hard tennis court, and children’s climbing frames, slides, and swings.
