A rare opportunity to rent a five-bedroom manor house has become available in Wells-next-the-Sea, and at £3,700 per calendar month, it is believed to be the most expensive in the area.

Vicki Foreman of Brown&Co describes Ostrich House as “stunning” and “one of the best I’ve rented” in over a decade and a half with the company.

The building is listed with grade II stars, which means that it is of great historical and architectural interest, and although the exact date of its construction is not known, it is prior to 1722, when its first deed of sale was registered.

In the 18th century, it is believed to have functioned as the Ostrich Inn, a training and public house, and was one of more than 30 pubs or inns in the Wells area at the time. It closed in or around 1910.
