The property comprises a vacant public house arranged over ground and first floors. The original pub has been extended to the side to provide additional accommodation and features a large car park and garden with frontage to the road.


The property is loated in Polsham, a small village to the north of Glastonbury and approximately 23 miles south east of Bristol. The village benefits from several local amenities and is predominantly a mix of detached and semi-detached housing.

The property occupies a large rectangular site with a long frontage to the road. Making the existing pub building and the adjacent land suitable for development (subject to planning)




The property has planning consent for an existing residential flat which is situated on the first floor of the pub (ref: 2018.2664/CLE).

It is envisaged that the property would be deemed suitable for development and that this development could entail conversion of the existing pub building into residential use, as well as the development of additional residential units within the car park/garden area. However no planning consent for this use is currently in place.
