Unique former Inn and skittle alley, now large family home with 5 detached ensuite letting rooms in over 1.5 acres. Freehold. Council Tax Band A. EPC for main house C. EPC for BnB B.


This unique home and business is positioned on the edge of the small village of South Chard on the borders of Somerset, Devon and Dorset, some 3 miles south of Chard and about 10.5 miles of the World Heritage Coast at Lyme Regis.

Both Chard and Axminster offer a wide range of amenities catering for most daily needs and Axminster has the benefit of an intercity rail service (London Waterloo can be reached in about 2 hours). There are several popular primary schools within easy reach and a wide choice of both independent and state secondary schools.

The county town of Taunton is about 17 miles to the north and the regional airports of Exeter and Bristol are easily accessible.


Formerly known as The Golden Fleece Inn, the main part of the pub is now a spacious private residency with generous size rooms, which have recently been refurbished and fitted, including a stylishly family kitchen within the old public bar. Change of use was granted this year (Ref 23/01067/COU).

On the ground floor the large family kitchen leads on to three private reception areas as well as a seperate breakfast lounge, giving potential for guests to be able to use the space throught the day. In addition there is a downstairs private bathroom and numerous store rooms.

On the first floor are three generous bedrooms, a large sitting room and office, a family bathroom and kitchenette. All offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside.


As well as the large family home the property offers five ensuite letting rooms. Converted from the former skittle alley in 2008 they have established themselves as a successful business. Set back from the main property each room has independent access and a private patio area. Rooms 1 and 2 also feature an interconnecting door allowing these to be let as a larger unit.


The private garden features two patio areas, lawn, veg plot and storage sheds. The large self contained summerhouse includes a kitchen and bathroom allowing for a place to escape. The static caravan is used for storage as well as visiting friends and family.


As one might expect with a former pub there is ample parking to the side and rear, with space for guests and private parking.

The top patio, paddock, guest courtyard, and private garden offer numerous ways to enjoy the outdoors.


To the rear of the property a near level paddock is flanked by mature hedge boundaries and has been used for caravanning and camping in the past as part of a 5 CL site (subject to the necessary consents). It benefits from a central access way, 6 electric hook up points and a campers shower/toilet situated on the top patio. There are also two large timber sheds and a WW2 pillbox.


Mains water, electric and drainage.


The council tax is currently Band A.
