We are thrilled to offer this enchanting and magical, Grade II Listed, three bedroom detached cottage, sitting in beautiful and tranquil grounds, with stylish and characterful accommodation, garage, off-road parking and situated in the incredibly sought-after hamlet of Parbrook.

Welcome to this magical, enchanting an utterly unique cottage, nestled in the heart of the beautiful hamlet of Parbrook. In brief the property comprises a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, study and family bathroom to the ground floor with three bedrooms (one with a WC) to the first floor. The Old Thatch, which sits in its own stunning and romantic gardens, is the ideal home to escape the chaos and tedium of modern day life. The current vendors have carefully put their own stamp on this home, giving it a real sense of personality, whilst being sympathetic to its age and character. There are a number of beautiful features in this home including exposed beams, stripped wood floorboards and an inglenook fireplace to name but a few. The inside accommodation works in perfect harmony with the outside grounds, with views at every turn and whether you are looking for an escape to the country or simply want a piece of the good life, we strongly encourage you to view.

The Old Thatch can be found in the favoured and popular hamlet of Parbrook. The hamlet really is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the countryside and footpaths in every direction are a delight for walkers. Parbrook, although peaceful and secluded, is well placed for road access to various towns including Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street and Castle Cary. The nearest primary schools are a very short distance away in the villages of Baltonsborough and West Pennard and there is a good selection of secondary schooling, both state and independent. The hamlet is particularly well placed for Millfield Prep and Senior Schools. For those needing commuter facilities, there is a main line train station at nearby Castle Cary for the direct fast line to London Paddington and there are excellent road links via the A303 to the south.

The property sits within its own grounds of mature gardens, with vegetable beds and sweeping lawns. There is a fantastic 'artist's studio' which could serve a multitude of purposes as well as a useful detached garage. The grounds are incredibly private and whether it's whiling away the summer days in the garden, entertaining family and friends or enjoying alfresco dining under the stars, one would be hard pushed to find a more idyllic setting.


'The Old Thatch truly has been the most magical home we have ever lived in. This house brings you in with a warm embrace, tucked away in a sleepy hamlet in a kind and connected community. Not only for a 600 year old cottage does it feel spacious with hidden rooms and masses of unique charm, but the inside really does flow with the outside so purposefully. The gardens at The Old Thatch are the crowning glory of this country plot, so well planted throughout each season and cleverly designed with colour and drama in mind. The wisteria in full bloom elegantly draping the walkway pagoda is a yearly highlight. Tranquillity in abundance. The memories of this home will last a lifetime. Whether it's collecting fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast, croquet and pimms on the front lawn in the summer, pulling up home-grown vegetables from the extensive vegetable patches for supper, or carrying our son to bed wrapped in a blanket having had story time around the fire pit, under the night time stars; it is all these elements and more that make this home the ultimate bucolic dwelling and serves up all the ingredients for a very happy life indeed. As custodians to this fantastical home for many years, it is our time to pass it on'.


It should be noted, given the age of this property there is restricted head room in some of the living space.
