They provide miles of footpaths and bridleways, ideal for those with walking and riding interests. Despite enjoying a rural location, the property is well placed being about 5 miles (10 minutes) from Taunton and junction 25 of the M5 motorway is about 6 miles away, whilst junction 24 at North Petherton is about 5 miles away. The nearby village of Kingston St Mary, has a thriving community, with Primary School, Pub, Garage, Playing Field, Village Hall and Church. Fyne Court, owned by the National Trust is also close by.

Follow the road for about 1.75 miles and at the top of the hill turn left. Follow this road until the junction and then turn right, the driveway to the property is on your left. Alternatively proceed in a northerly direction out of Taunton heading towards Hestercombe. Passing Hestercombe on your right continue up Volis Hill and at the Volis crossroads, take the right hand turning. Continue on this road for three quarters of a mile and the driveway will be found on the left hand side.
