On the ground floor there is a utility room fitted with a range of matching wall and base units, which includes a sink and has a door to the airing cupboard and a door to outside. There are three bedrooms, the master bedroom has a designer Italian en suite bathroom and the two further bedrooms share a Jack and Jill shower room.

From the road there is a gateway providing access to a gravel parking and turning area. In addition, there is a brick built former Smithy that could be converted to form garaging or be used as ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary planning consent. The driveway and front garden is divided by high wooden fencing, opening on to a further parking area, which provides space and turning for a number of vehicles. There are a number of lawn areas at the front with a raised timber decking area. There is access via either side of the house leading to the rear garden with steps up to the river bank and again offering a wonderful aspect. The house is built on a relatively high piece of ground and the boundary that adjoins the river bank and is owned and maintained by the environment agency. There are lovely interrupted views across farm land to the ruin church and historic Burrow Mump owned by The National Trust. The river is slightly tidal and great for water based activities.


Proceed from Taunton on the main road to Burrowbridge. At the traffic lights before crossing the bridge turn right. Follow Stathe Road for a short distance and Tapping Wall Cottage can be identified on the left hand side by a Stags For Sale board.
