Agents Note
The property flooded in July 2021. Water surface run off was unable to drain into the manhole as it had been blocked. We would advise a buyer undertake drainage improvements/investigations. No flooding noted to the property prior to this event. New flooring has been laid where required and the kitchen can be fitted by the new owner.

Wild Thyme Cottage lies to the centre of the popular village of Bradford Abbas which is conveniently placed mid-way between the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. The village has a good number of amenities including a church, a primary school, a public house and a sports centre while both Sherborne and Yeovil provide between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The beautiful gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the cottage providing a wonderful, delightful and secluded setting.
There is a driveway for 1 car and a detached single garage. There is also additional off road parking available (not part of the freehold).

The gardens and grounds are arranged in a whole number of areas. Immediately adjoining the cottage is a paved terrace with steps to a generous lawn, interspersed with floral borders and specimen trees.

A stone workshop is located to the rear of the garden, providing additional storage.
