Property Summary

This really is a lifestyle choice, situated in a picture postcard setting on the banks of the River Sheppey in the popular village of Godney. There are spectacular views of Glastonbury Tor from its stunning roof terrace, from where you can enjoy your gin and tonic, or you can always stroll down to the vibrant popular local, The Sheppey, for a local cider or two.

This stylish home has been imaginatively extended by the current owners, an architect, whose style and flair is clearly evident throughout. This fabulous house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms (two of which are ensuite) - the family bathroom with its travertine tiles and twin basins with a frameless walk in shower and bath, and a large kitchen breakfast room with its stunning green oak extension faces east, with full width bi-folding doors opening onto the garden for those lazy breakfasts. The sitting room has a cosy log burner for those chillier evenings and the stunning floor to ceiling, fully glazed south facing garden room with doors that slide all the way back, revealing amazing views over the open countryside and the Tor beyond. There are slate floors throughout and the garden wraps around the house with railings and steps leading to the gentle river from where you can launch your kayak or simply dangle your toes in the water while watching the occasional otter swim by or a kingfisher fly past. The garden has plumbing for an outdoor shower situated next to the Beachcomber Hot Tub (available by separate negotiation).

There is a large off road area of block paved driveway and concrete hardstanding providing space for about 4-5 cars. The overall plot are is approx 0.25 acre.


This very desirable village has a vibrant, creative community with a popular local pub, tea rooms, artisan bakery and many social activities take place based around the village hall. The Sheppey Inn is a destination pub due to it’s excellent menu and fun filled atmosphere. There are wonderful walks along bridle ways and footpaths which deliver a plethora of wildlife including swans, deer and herons.

Godney is situated between Wells, Glastonbury and Wedmore. The small City of Wells offers a wealth of culture, societies and hosts busy, vibrant markets twice a week and has several supermarkets including Waitrose. Glastonbury also offers weekly markets, supermarkets, a small hospital and plenty of independent shopping. The larger cities of Bath, Bristol, Taunton and Yeovil are within commuting distance. The train stations at Castle Cary and Highbridge offer fast, direct lines to London.


The property is within the catchment area of The Blue School in Wells and also within easy reach of excellent private schools; Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. Neighbouring villages of Coxley, Mere and Wookey offer good primary schools and Millfield has it’s own prep school.
