Property Summary

Hillcrest sits in its own plot of land in a very peaceful setting on the edge of the pretty hamlet of Southwood. The views are exceptional and far reaching which help to make Hillcrest a very desirable and unique opportunity for someone wanting peace and tranquillity, whilst also offering the purchaser the opportunity to create a very special home. The rear garden, which has an established and productive vegetable patch, beyond the garden is an adjoining orchard with it owns access on to the road. From the front of the property the iconic Glastonbury Tor can be seen in the distance. A short distance away is the popular village of Baltonsborough with its pub, shop and church.

Hillcrest has 3 reception rooms, all good sizes and 3 bedrooms which share one bathroom and a separate WC. Next to the kitchen is a utility room with external access. At the rear is a conservatory which enjoys the fabulous south-facing views over the garden and surrounding countryside

Hillcrest is in need of updating but it could also be re-modelled or re-developed. Any potential purchaser would need to take guidance from either a planning consultant or Mendip Council Planning Department to understand the extent to which either scenario is possible. Rarely do such opportunities come up to potentially create a fabulous family home in a truly special location.


Southwood is a small rural hamlet about a mile south of the village of Baltonsborough between Glastonbury and Castle Cary. The hamlet is within the parish of Baltonsborough, which has a thriving community with a church, primary school, shop and a pub. The Historic town of Glastonbury and renowned landmark Glastonbury Tor is a short distance to the west. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and is today a small but thriving town and a major tourist venue. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area clusters around the rocky ruins of the Abbey.

On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington (under 2 hours) and the A303 road link is a few miles south.
