The Property

Wychell Farm is an imposing detached stone built Grade II Listed family home with accommodation (2827 Sq Ft) arranged over three floors set in mature grounds encompassing circa 26 acres mix of stunning ancient orchards, several agricultural barns, seven stables, paddocks and woodland including an estimated 1200 year old oak tree.
The property is approached via an impressive driveway from Wapley Hill leading to the centre of the plot with ample parking immediately in front of the property and adjacent to the various barns and outbuildings.
Parts of the farmhouse have recently been refurbished and is an ideal base from which to further develop and improve the property into an enviable family home with scope for a large modern extension to the rear. There is also potential to attach the property to the adjacent stone outbuilding ( Barn B ) to create further accommodation – all subject to gaining the necessary consents.


Wapley is a small South Gloucestershire hamlet, unspoiled and with a true rural identity. Wychwell Farm is ideally placed providing easy access to Bristol and Bath in addition to the M4, M32 and M5. Parkway railway station is nearby, with services to most cities nationwide. For the equestrian there are bridleways, as well as liveries and stables. Bath and Bristol offer a wide choice of schools, both state and independent. Both are cities of historic importance, culturally rich in theatre, cinema and music as well museums, reflecting their architectural, nautical and industrial histories.

Equestrian Potential

The property has superb equestrian facilities with a range of Stables & Tack Room ( Barn E ) and a redundant menage area (to the rear of Barn D). There are excellent grazing facilities on site and a range of local bridleways and associated equestrian facilities.

Development Opportunity

The property has a range of large barns, stables and outbuildings that have huge development potential for either ancillary accommodation to the main house or independent dwellings.
Planning has previously been sought from South Gloucestershire under “Prior Notification” to develop barns B, D & G which was refused but we understand a more formal planning application will be considered more favourably – for further details please contact Hollis Morgan.
