Traditional pretty stone house with large extension providing very comfortable accommodation for 12 people. Every room is spacious and filled with light. There are great views from every window. Guests are stepping into a beautiful family home, with everything a house needs to comfortably entertain a large number of people. More than three acres of garden and fields including tennis court. Shed with spare mattresses and table tennis for overspill. The house sits in large elevated plot up a 200 yard drive making it very private. Parking for nine cars in hardcore area. Additional parking in field if dry. This is a private family house rented out during vacations.

Kitchen/dining room - 8.4m x 6m. Very spacious room. Range cooker with two electric ovens, grill and 6-gas burners, larder fridge, huge well-stocked larder (please replace items as they run out), dishwasher, all mod cons, big pans and serving dishes. Wonderful picture window looking out to view which includes Glastonbury Tor. On a good day it's possible to see around 18 miles. Full-size sliding doors out to large terrace which remains cool on very hot days, and further door to sunny front terrace. Both have eating areas.

Large airy hall lined with books and a piano with staircase ascending to gallery.

Drawing room - approx 8m x 4m with fireplace and woodburner. Plenty of sofas. Doors out to verandah and to front terrace.

Study - approached through a bookcase door, this room has two old computers directly linked to the internet. Both have guest accounts open. There is a third desk with sockets and ethernet connection. Back stairs to first floor.

Utility room - Washing machine. Indoor drying line.

Master bedroom - Huge airy room with full panoramic windows and two additional windows. Large bed with zip mattresses. En-suite bathroom with roomy shower and bath. En-suite walk-in cupboard with ample hanging space.

Bedroom 2 - Urban cool wallpapered room with small shower room/loo opposite. Double bed. Walk-in wardrobe.

Bedrooms 3 & 4 - Light airy rooms - one with double bed and one with twin beds and shared bathroom. Both have good wardrobe space.

Attic bedrooms 5&6 - Two very large and light rooms with adjoining big shower room on top floor. Two beds in each. These could be extended into dormitories with (three) spare mattresses from shed. What can I say about the decor and its state!! . . . Teenage rooms . . . Very teenage/child-friendly decor! An over-ambitious painting project has left paint stains on floor in one of the bedrooms and attic bathroom! One room has white walls with a home-made multi-coloured handprint feature(?!). The other has large panoramic forest wallhanging, fake grass floor and Beatles zebra crossing, guitars hanging on walls and sofa. Although these are attic rooms they each have high ceilings for about 4m x 4m.They are wonderful, cool and definitely not for grown-ups! Plenty of hanging space and shelves in both rooms. Cleanliness? We've done our best! Tiny cupboards into eaves are locked with screws to stop the bogeymen coming out of them!

TV room - Smallish hall area (approx 3m x 3.5m) on first floor with old TV, DVD player and battered sofa.

Verandah - Perfect for the evening sun or drizzly days - undercover with perspex roof. Around 7m x 4m. Dining table. Retractable washing line.

Terraces - Whilst most of the outdoor areas have some tables and chairs, these are easily moved to create dining for more people.

Tennis court - Full size court with floodlights for night-time play! Seating/watching area.

Shed - Pretty blue wooden structure with table-tennis and half-size billiards, doggy sofa and spare mattresses. Perfect for sulking teenagers! This room would not pass a cleanliness test, but we use it all the time.

Very good walking from the door.

Up to two dogs welcome in hard-floor areas only (kitchen, hall, utility) - but absolutely not upstairs. Sofa in kitchen must have cover on if dogs present.

Round and about - Lovely outdoor heated pool with sun loungers at local leisure centre about 20 mins walk away. Also squash, gym etc. Local historic town of Langport about 1.5 miles away - two butchers, greengrocer, supermarket, petrol, boutiques, bakeries, doctors, Thai and Indian restaurants, traditional take-aways. Beautiful river walks. Main supermarkets will all deliver - Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda.

Less than an hour by car to famous south coast beaches at Charmouth, Lyme Regis or West Bay, or try the deserted, fossil-rich, unspoilt north somerset pebble beaches at East Quantoxhead and around. Plenty of historic houses in easy reach, including Longleat which also has safari and play areas. Theme parks at Crealy and Brean with water slides, roller coasters etc, both less than an hour's drive.

The Somerset region

Raggett House is perched on a ridge with beautiful rural views in every direction. Glastonbury Tor dominates the skyline to the east, whilst the moors lie to the south and if there is flooding the views become quite fantastic. The region is popular with country lovers who want to take a break from the crowds in Devon and Cornwall without compromising on scenery.


Langport is walking distance - about 1.5 miles, or 2.5km. It has a supermarket, plus independent butchers, banks, gift shops, clothes shops, coffee shops, antiques, delicatessen, and a brilliant fish stall on Fridays - try the crab - hand picked and no mayo. YUM YUM YUM. There's also a great new Thai restaurant, an excellent Indian restaurant, the usual take-aways and award-winning pubs. The coasts to the south and the north-west are about an hour away. Wonderful wildlife and walking area. Lots of artists, musicians. Check out Ebenezer's Chapel lectures and films which offer soup and sofas whilst providing a fantastic cultural experience. There's cycling along the Parratt River. There's the usual offering of wonderful National Trust houses and gardens nearby, Longleat Safari Park, Crealy Adventure theme park (without a theme I believe), and the high-octane rides at Brean Leisure.

The local leisure is only a mile away and has a wonderful outdoor pool set in gardens ready for picnics and provides loungers and picnic tables. There are family friendly times with floats etc and lane swimming times for the serious. There are also squash and badminton courts.

There is a private floodlit tennis court and croquet at the house.
