A North Somerset country estate has gone up for sale.

The 20-acre Mooseheart site, at Winscombe, features an estate house, gatehouse, former coach house and more outbuildings.

It also has planning permission for an event space which could host weddings.

It is being marketed by national property consultancy Carter Jonas and is being offered for sale by informal tender.

The estate is situated within woodland, meadowland, gardens, lawns and agricultural land, with views over Winscombe Hill. It is surrounded by agricultural land to the north and west.

In March 2022 full planning consent was granted for the extension and conversion of the existing buildings into an 18-bed boutique hotel, including spa, restaurant, events space and three holiday lets. 

The estate also benefits from an outline approval for 14 further residential units within its grounds Mooseheart is well located for Weston, Bristol and Exeter, and Bristol International Airport is within approximately nine miles.
