About Jane Stiley

I love antiques Horses Village life,

Jane Stiley purchased this house in 2012

Why Jane Stiley chose Wincanton

Lovely Family home and quirky building with parking on private road to rear and easy distance to Castle Cary and train station also easy for business travellers as easy to get to Bath and West Showground and Yeovil Bath and surrounding towns but enjoy the tranquality life what offers in a countryside property. This property is situated on a road at the front of the house and is in walking distance to castle Cary railway station.

Also easy to travel to Bruton and Stonehendge easy acess to all the local attractions like Longleat and Rhode Gardens, Somerset is steeped in history so plenty to explore.

Easy to realx in the evening and wind down with a glass of wine on the small decking area right outside the back door.

Great to walk into town and have a meal and a drink plent of resturaunts to choose from , or just to get some local fish and chips,

What makes this house unique

Large Property , Rent as a Entire House, Original Fire Places, Enjoy Country house but in a Town as Castle Cary is Classed as a Town. Enjoy Resturaunts and local outlets close, Also so close to get to train station at Castle Cary, and easy to get to from London and if working at the Bath and West Showground just along the road.

Bristol close and Bath and lots of places to visit although close neighbours they are so friendly so a great family home on a private road to rear.

5 star House was beautiful a real treat :)

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation is beautiful, wonderfully refreshing, everything clean and decorated lovely. The host was very welcoming. We found the environment extremely relaxing and enjoyable. We enjoyed being able to cook our own food in the well equipped kitchen as a family. Views were really nice from the loft bedroom, especially at night when the sun goes down.

Thanks you so much Jane

we will be back again :)

Perfect location with a idealist picturesque village, down the next turn.

House was very clean and kept to a high standard. Comfy.

Nice neighbors and very easy to let ourselves in with key code key. Spacious on 4 floors with the characters is of the books and crannies that give this property the perfect mix. Really enjoyed our stay and found lovely restaurants close by and also loved just sitting in the garden with a glass of wine in the sunshine. Couldn't ask for more. Special thank you to Jane' who was virtuous and kept us up to date with booking and explained directions and all amenities. Again thank you will be returning next time we are down.
