16th century Farm HouseFacilitiesTwo AcresHealth and SafetyArtSpiritual HistoryWelcome

Nut Tree Farm at Stoughton Cross is a 16th Century Farmhouse set in two acres of secluded peaceful semi-wild garden, orchard and woodland area in beautiful Somerset countryside, 1.25 miles from the attractive and historic village of Wedmore. Stoughton Cross was a pilgrim stopover and still has a medieval stone cross and a holy well.

Nut Tree Farm was built around the time of Queen Elizabeth I, Francis Drake, Walter Raleigh and Shakespeare, though we cannot possibly claim any of them stayed here!! However, Elizabeth did give vast tracts of Somerset land to one Hugh Sexey for services to crown and country, as reflected in the name of one of our local pubs, ‘Sexey's Arms’, and also in ‘Hugh Sexey's School’.

In the immediate locality we are one of four farmhouses, two of which are listed and which were all built between the 15th and 17th Centuries. Beyond our land we are otherwise surrounded by small rolling fields and meadows.
