The 51 acres is home to a deer park, swimming pool and tennis court, plus farm buildings and a cottage on site.

Lending itself to a variety of uses, the vastness of the estate and the main property offers an opportunity for a new owner to develop the site, subject to planning permission.

The estate was previously owned by the St Albyn family and had also housed American troops during World War II, as well as having been the site for Wellington House School.

The house was also home to William Wordsworth during his friendship with Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the estate is said to be the inspiration behind the romantic movement in England.

Richard Thomas, business agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “It is always exciting when such a rare and historic property is introduced to the market and with its idyllic West Somerset location, we anticipate a high level of interest from a variety of parties across the leisure sector. Of course, there is also potential to convert the site into a residential dwelling, and as a blank canvas there are endless opportunities for a new owner to embark on.”
