north west of the county town of Taunton

and is widely regarded as one of the best

in the Taunton Vale district - there is no

passing traffic and the village is a lovely

blend of largely character property. The

rural centre of Bishops Lydeard is about a

mile away where a good range of facilities

are available including primary schooling,

mini supermarket, news agents, doctors

surgery and two pubs whilst the county

town of Taunton is an easy drive about 5

miles distant where a wide range of

shopping, recreational and scholastic

facilities will be found together with M5

interchange (junction 25) and main line rail

link to London Paddington. The Quantock

Hills which are designated as an Area of

Outstanding Natural Beauty are within two

miles where a wide number of footpaths

are available and from which lovely views

are afforded over the Vale of Taunton

Deane to the south and the Bristol Chanel

and South Wales to the North. There are a

number of immediately available

footpaths in the village as well.

lane and is approached through a set of

double timber gates over a paved car
