Property Summary

Castle House, in the picturesque village of Nunney is possibly one of the most unique and historical properties on the market with its immediate neighbour being the remains of a magnificent, moated castle built in the late 14th century by Sir John Delamore.

Soaring from the ground this medieval ruin, described by historians as “aesthetically the most impressive castle in Somerset” is a spectacular sight from the garden of this pretty and quirky home. Castle House is bursting with historical features such as a bread oven, wonderful beams and an original staircase believed to date back to the 17th Century.

On the ground floor is a spacious entrance hall which leads on into a sizeable study, coat store and downstairs loo. A separate dining room and 25ft long living room, with a jet master open fire and large glazed doors leading onto the country patio garden, ideal for entertaining. At the back of the house is an eat-in kitchen which links through to a conservatory offering unparalleled views of the castle, and providing access to a separate riverside terrace.

On the first floor a double bedroom and a single are positioned next to a family bathroom which is conveniently located opposite a utility room. The jewel in the crown on this floor is currently a second sitting room with views of the castle and 14th century church through mullioned windows which could easily be used as a master bedroom.

On the second floor is the current master suite, a large double aspect bedroom with generous shower room and plenty storage. A small ante room provides access to the attic which, with relevant planning permission, could be converted into another living/sleeping space.

At the end of the garden the upstairs of a double garage has been converted into a dwelling perfect for an air B&B business, office/workshop, granny annexe or private rental. It offers a large studio room and bathroom, with further potential to convert some of the garage below into extra living space. In addition to the double garage, off street parking for 2 cars is available on the property.


The outside of the property is adorned with a beautiful wisteria and planted with an abundance of scented roses and wonderfully mature trees including a prolific fig and apple tree. The outside space wraps around the property with a river running along the rear with a mini courtyard creating the perfect spot to watch the ducks and their offspring bobbing past.


Nunney is a fabulous village with a thriving and bustling community based around a pub, a village store and a little coffee shop. The annual village fete attracts visitors from wide and far and is a much-anticipated event. Further information can be found at visitnunney.com . The nearby fashionable town of Frome is a five-minute drive and is home to a comprehensive choice of retail outlets and all the usual amenities.  “Frome Independent” is an award-winning street market that is held on the first Sunday of each month and attracts up to 80,000 people per year. The equally fashionable town of Bruton is a fifteen-minute drive and is home to the renowned art Gallery Hauser and Wirth and the restaurant “At the Chapel” and the fabulous country mansion, Babington House, is a few miles away. The larger and beautiful City of Bath is approximately 35 minutes north and offers a plethora of culture and history.

Transport links are excellent with a mainline railway from Frome or Castle Cary to London Paddington and Bristol Airport is approximately 45 minutes to the west.


Nunney has its own primary school and feeds into an excellent secondary school in Frome and Bruton. Private schools include All Hallows Prep, Downside, Kings Bruton and the Bath schools, Prior Park, Monkton Combe and King Edwards to name just a few.


From the A361 take the turning towards Nunney. Upon entering the village continue until you reach the steps to the church on your right-hand side Castle House is directly opposite these steps.
