Property Summary

Knapp House is a delightful newly renovated four bedroom property in the quiet rural village of Burtle. The property which is believed to date from the 1850’s has undergone a sympathetic transformation to provide deceptively generous accommodation enjoying country views in a peaceful location. The house is approached via a gravel path to the traditional reclaimed timber wood front porch flanked by a large lawn area which has been fenced to provide privacy, parking for several cars, and uninterrupted views of the moors to the south.

On entering the house you find yourself in an open plan dining hall from which the stairs rise to the first floor, from which you can also access the well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room at the rear of the property with views of the orchard. The dining hall has a working fireplace which is ready to be put into use should you so wish. The sitting room to the right of the front porch provides a lovely southerly aspect view of the front garden, new wood burning stove and oak flooring. The kitchen and utility room feature a mix of grey units, complemented by a black quartz worktop and come with a built in double oven, induction hob and integrated dishwasher. There is a breakfast bar and plenty of room in the kitchen to put a small sofa or a couple of big armchairs to make this a family area or a children’s play area and from here there is a door that opens up on to a beautiful decking area to the left of the property, providing a lovely extended area to sit, barbecue or simply enjoy the sun. From the utility room an external door provides access to the rear of the house for those muddy winter days, a downstairs cloakroom housing the mains pressured water tank, as well as providing space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and ample room for a wet mucky dog to dry off.

The house is light and airy throughout and has 4 large double bedrooms on the first floor. The large master bedroom to the rear of the property has wonderful sized en-suite with double walk-in shower and double basins, and there is a large family bathroom with separate bath and shower facilities.

Every effort has been made to give this property a contemporary feel, whilst retaining its charm through the use of reclaimed materials throughout the renovation process. A fabulous property in a perfect spot.

The house has large decking area to the left of the property, and steps take you down to a single timber framed garage, complete with mains electric.  Access to the garage is via a five bar gate from the road with a large gravelled area providing additional parking, as well as more to the front of the property. The south facing garden to the front of the property is ready to make your own and plant as you will. The oil tank and external boiler are housed to the rear of the property, and a useful gravelled utility path surrounds the house.


The quiet village of Burtle has a population of around 500, situated west of Westhay, and approximately 7 miles from Glastonbury. Highbridge and Burnham Railway Station is 6 miles northwest, and the M5 can be accessed at Junction 22 some 15 minutes away. Burtle is home to the award winning Duck Pub and within easy access of many beautiful walks and nature reserves. There are other great pubs nearby, The White Hart in the village as well as The Crown offering great food in nearby Catcott and in the village of Cossington (less than a mile) is The Red Tile which specialise in pizza’s.  There is a gym and health club which also boast a fabulous beauty salon, The Parlour, which offers a range of quality nail and beauty treatments all set in a luxurious setting in nearby Chilton Polden not to mention "Fuelled By Liv" where you can enjoy coffee, cake, brunch and more. "Gwilliams of Edington" a family run business which originally specialises in garden machinery but offers so much more including a delicatessen and post office - if you cant buy it at Gwilliams you cant buy it anywhere, from fine champagne to secateurs to posting a letter, Gwilliams has it all. In the next door village of Edington is the local doctors surgery and dispensary. Good road access is available to junction 23 of the M5 and also to Street along the A39. Good rail transport links to London can be found at Castle Cary and Bridgwater or Highbridge & Burnham railway stations all within a short drive, which both offer excellent direct rail services to London Paddington. Bridgwater also has an excellent hospital. There are Airports in Bristol and Exeter offering connections within the UK, Europe and beyond. The Shapwick Heath Nature Reserve is nearby where the beautiful starling murmurations can be seen. Nearby, the thriving town of Street offers a wide variety of retail opportunities including Clarks Village and the usual selection of supermarkets. Recreational facilities include two swimming pools and Strode theatre. Chilton Polden is well situated for Glastonbury a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, sporting facilities and supermarkets. 

For shopping, “Clark’s village” in Street offers a wealth of retail opportunities with more shopping and local amenities to be found nearby and as well as Glastonbury; Somerton and Wells are both within easy reach. For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol and Yeovil are all within about an hour’s drive.


The area is well positioned for schools with Primary schools in Catcott, Woolavington and Meare.  Millfield Preparatory and Senior School are within a short drive, with Crispin Secondary School in Street as well as the respected Sixth Form College, Strode College as well as Bridgwater College is nearby. Wells Cathedral School and the Blue School in Wells are all within easy access.
