Wellington is within 7.5 miles and offers supermarkets and a range of independent shops, whilst the county town of Taunton is a 20 minute drive and offers a greater range of shops, amenities, schools and sixth form colleges. There is an excellent range of schools in Taunton and Wellington, both in the independent and state sectors. The market town of Honiton lies to the south

The property is very well placed for access to both the M5 and A303, the primary links between the South East and the West Country.
