Somerset - Hayes End Manor, South Petherton

Two bedroom cottage - £250,000

Hayes End is a fine example of an ancient Somerset farmhouse, dating from the end of the 14th century. The present development is based on the old farmhouse with its pretty, secluded courtyard and its beautiful stone Flax Barn and Granary - all listed buildings. South Petherton has all the amenities of a small town with bank, library, doctor‘s surgery, hospital, post office and a good range of shops, all gathered under the shadow of the beautiful octagonal church tower, a short walk from Hayes End.

South Petherton lies just to the north of the A303, six miles east of Ilminster. Yeovil is eleven miles away and it is sixteen miles to Taunton and the M5.

Legend relates a visitation to the old house by Dick Turpin on a Sunday morning. Finding the house occupied by defenceless women, he was persuaded to leave them unmolested. Better attested is the connection with Thomas Coke, well known divine and disciple of John Wesley. When curate of the parish he was forcibly ejected from the church and given shelter by the Edmonds family at Hayes End.
