Westhay is found between the highly sought after village of Wedmore and the desirable town of Glastonbury. The close by village of Meare has a good community with village hall, well renowned primary school and farm shop and Westhay itself has a public house. The parish Church of St Mary in Meare, formerly in the keeping of Glastonbury Abbey, dates from 1323 and is a Grade I listed building. There are plenty of lovely footpaths for walking, as well as the nearby nature reserves of Shapwick Moor and Shapwick Heath, which have both been designated as sites of special scientific interest and are well known as the sites of the mesmerising starling murmurations. Westhay is well placed for access to Wells and Street in addition to the M5 motorway to the West. The popular village of Wedmore is a very short drive and features an enviable range of village amenities.
