Railway Hotel is an attractive Grade II Listed house which is believed to date back to 1842. The property in brief comprises a large open entrance porch with the front door which leads into a hallway with original flag stone floors and stairs rising to the first floor. There are three reception rooms, a kitchen/diner with an island, matching base units and Aga. A door leads to the rear porch and downstairs bathroom. The lounge is well presented and has a log burner. There is another large room to the ground floor which requires some work. To the first floor are five double bedrooms which are all served by the family bathroom. There is a kitchen/diner/lounge to the first floor with a separate staircase which leads to the ground floor and has its own front door. The property itself requires modernisation throughout. Agents Notes: uPVC windows have been put in at the rear. Due to the Grade II Listing, it may be a requirement to replace these with timber framed single glazed windows, to keep it in keeping with the building. The septic tank also needs replacing as it is currently non complaint. The property is situated near to the railway line.

The property occupies a rural location on the outskirts of the small hamlet known as Outwood. The nearby village of East Lyng and North Curry are situated about 2 miles to the east and southeast respectively, both affording thriving communities with the latter also providing a public house, general store, post office, café and health centre. The County Town of Taunton offers an extensive range of commercial and retail amenities with representations for most national stores and a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities. Excellent educational opportunities are available. Access to the M5 motorway is available at Taunton (junction 25), as well as a mainline rail link, including a fast rail service to London Paddington. International airports are available at both Bristol and Exeter. The property is well positioned for access to the surrounding districts with the environmentally renowned Somerset levels to the east, whilst to the north and south lie the Quantock & Blackdown Hills, both designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offering an abundance of foot and bridle paths.

The property is approached down a long driveway flanked on one side by a paddock. Adjacent to the house is an adaptable range of outbuildings with alternative use potential (STP) comprising a three bay Dutch barn, 8 stables, a large brick barn which was previously used to house livestock, 4 further sheds and a concrete yard area. Outside the stables is a holding paddock and field, in all about 4.2 acres. There is also a small lawned area as well.
