Forncet is situated in the small market town of Wem, which has a variety of shops and businesses. It offers a range of cultural and recreational facilities as well as educational: St Peter's Primary School and the Adams Secondary School and College.

The county town of Shrewsbury lies to the south of Wem, which has a railway station with regular services to Shrewsbury and Crewe with connections to Birmingham and Chester. There is also easy road access to Telford and the M54.


Forncet is a well-presented property with a separate coach house. It is a spacious family home with well proportioned rooms with high ceilings, including Victorian features typical of the architectural period.

The property has been very well maintained, both internally and externally by the current owners. On the ground floor, the property consists of a large entrance hall and three reception rooms which include a dining room, a drawing room and a billiards room. The kitchen features a gas Aga. There is also a utility room, butler's pantry and a WC. In the cellar, the rooms include a workshop and storage space. The first floor can be accessed from both the front and back stairs. The back stairs lead to an office, bathroom and separate WC. The front stairs lead up to a large landing, five well-proportioned bedrooms, a large dressing room and a bathroom with a walk-in shower.


The entrance drive leads through the garden to the front of the house. Across the courtyard, the well maintained coach house has retained many of its original features, including stables and tack room. The extensive mature gardens around the house are a particular feature of the property and include a sweeping lawn and a variety of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There is also a wooded garden and a walled kitchen garden, two greenhouses and a selection of garden outbuildings.

From the direction of Shrewsbury, and on entering the centre of Wem, with the church on your left-hand side, turn right at the T junction on to the High Street. Continue over the level crossing and bear sharply left. After a short distance the private driveway to Forncet is on the left-hand side.
