Chilton Polden Hill, Chilton Polden, Bridgwater

'Jan Swains Cottage' is not actually Jan Swain's Cottage, but the origins of the name are interesting and can be found in the history books of Somerset. It is suggested that a gentleman called Jan Swain escaped the King's forces during the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 by making four enormous leaps.

The property itself is also extremely interesting...

With an abundance of space there is a great deal of versatility in this home. There are three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms to the first floor and a further bedroom with en suite to the ground floor.

In addition, there is a further shower room and a great deal of space for a large or growing family.

Set upon approximately 2 acres there is parking for around 14/15 cars to the front, plus a heated swimming pool, games room, studio, barn and stable.

Full of charm and character, this large detached residence has two inglenook fireplaces and a large conservatory to the rear, with views of the mature garden and paddock area beyond.

In addition to the four bath/shower rooms in the main house, the studio in the garden also has a shower room and work surface space - possibly providing an additional income. The games room also has a WC.

Chilton Polden Hill sits just moments from the centre of Chilton Polden village.

Collectively the Polden Villages are home to a wide range of amenities with two doctor's surgeries, a butcher, pubs, churches, village halls, hairdressing salons, veterinary surgery, gym, cafe and the ever popular cricket Pavilion at Shapwick with views of Glastonbury Tor.

This is a large characterful property on the edge of the pretty and well served 'Polden Villages'. Bridgwater, Street, Burnham on Sea and Taunton are all within a 30 minute drive, as is the M5.
