A period cottage full of character and many original features providing good size, versatile accommodation, complimented by the beautiful gardens which overlook the medieval town of Axbridge, the Mendip hills and surrounding countryside. We understand the name 'Barley Cottage' originates from when the property was used as a grain merchants and auctioneers premises. This Grade II listed property is in our opinion presented in excellent order and needs to be viewed to appreciate the many original features that help make this such a beautiful property. Features include: Beamed ceilings, exposed stone fireplace and walls and period windows. The accommodation comprises: Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room with gas fired Rayburn, Study/Utility, Sitting Room/Snug, First Floor Landing, 3 Double Bedrooms with dressing room/occasional bedroom and en suite W.C to bedroom 1 and Family Bathroom with four piece suite.

Outside, the delightful landscaped gardens and two seating areas form a particular feature of the property affording a good degree of privacy and sunshine.


The property is located close to the heart of the charming 'Centuries Old' town of Axbridge nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, ideal for those with a keen interest in the outdoors. Being a market town allowed Axbridge to prosper via the wool trade during the medieval period and the heart of Axbridge has changed little retaining a number of early listed buildings in the Square and lining the main streets. The Square still has the feel of a marketplace today with a range of shops including: Post Office, Chemist and Mini Market as well as places to eat and drink including the popular 'Old Almshouse', 'Lamb Inn', 'Crown Inn' and 'Oak House Restaurant'. In addition, there is a Church, Doctors Surgery and local First School Academy within walking distance with Secondary Education available at the very popular Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar. There is a local bus service providing access to the surrounding district and a more comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities in the nearby village of Cheddar. For those travelling further afield, the A38 provides direct access to Bristol city centre and access to the M5 Motorway network is available at junction 21 St Georges and 22 Edithmead. Bristol International Airport is approximately a 20-minute drive away.


From Winscombe heading South on the Bridgwater Road (A38), proceed for approximately 1 miles. Take the left hand fork in the road onto the A371 sign posted to Axbridge, Cheddar and Wells.
