Pickney Farm occupies a wonderful, quiet, rural location and unknown to many but in a readily accessible location between Taunton and the Quantocks Hills. The property benefits from beautiful views of the Quantock Hills, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing miles of footpaths and bridleways ideal for those with walking and riding interests. The nearby village of Kingston St Mary provides an active community with many local clubs and organisations as well as a primary school, garage, public house, parish church, village hall and playing fields.


Pickney Farm is a well-proportioned detached house, with rendered elevations under a pitched tiled roof which has been extended and remodelled over the years and now provides a self-contained two bedroom annexe. However, the house could easily be turned back into a substantial family house, if required.
