A prize winning cottage with its very own jail
3rd of March 2014
stone built cottage with 17th century jail for sale
The Forge, West Porlock, Minehead, Somerset, TA24 8NX
Guide price £325,000

Somerset Cottage And Jail
Set in the Exmoor National Park and enjoying stunning panoramic views, The Forge is an attractive and interesting detached stone built cottage which won the House Beautiful Magazine’s Country Cottage of the Year in 1955.

This two bedroom cottage comes with a thatched lock-up jail, believed to date from the 17th century, which might be suitable for conversion to further accommodation, a studio, office or other uses (subject to planning permission). With its steel barred window it was used to hold local miscreants, many of whom were likely to have been involved in the smuggling.

The property also boasts an alpine garden, which is an outstanding feature of the property.
