Set in approx. 3.7 acres a spacious 3 bedroom chalet bungalow with excellent equestrian facilities inc. stabling, barns & manege, in an accessible rural location
Bowercombe is a rurally situated residential and private equestrian property situated just to the south of the popular market town of Somerton. The property has been utilised by the vendors for private equestrian use for many years and in the agent’s opinion, has excellent equestrian facilities including a manege, stabling with a covered yard / work area and adjoining rug and work room, and a good size barn and store adjoining.
We understand from the vendors that within a reasonable hacking distance along Upper Langport Road there is access to lane hacking and further woodland riding beyond. Further details available with the vendor.
As well as the excellent equestrian facilities there is also a very good outbuilding that has been utilised previously by the vendors as a home office from where they have run their own small business.
The nearby village of Somerton is a pretty and historic village with an extensive range of independent shops and retailers including public houses, a bank, library, doctors and dental surgeries, as well as primary schooling. There is secondary schooling at nearby Huish Episcopi and sixth form colleges at both Yeovil and Street. Street is also the home of Millfield School and Clarks Village Outlet, famous for its shoes.
There is a mainline rail link at nearby Castle Cary, with access to London Paddington and Yeovil (Waterloo Line). To the south the A303 and the Podimore Roundabout is readily accessible, giving excellent east/west access.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
