Our house was built in 1860 as a school with 'Girls' and 'Boys' entrances, we live in the 'Boys' side. The desks have gone but the character remains in this recently modernised, well-equipped, comfortable home. Our village is a quiet community of lovely neighbours on a Sustrans bicycle route and close to the small, market town of Castle Cary. We are in an excellent location from which to explore the west country with the nearby cathedral city of Wells and Glastonbury with its abbey and tor. Within an easy day trip are Stonehenge, Corfe Castle, the Roman city of Bath and Bristol with it's newly redeveloped harbour area, Clifton Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain. The world heritage site of Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis and the spectacular Dorset and Devon coast make wonderful excursions. It is less than two hours by train to London from Castle Cary station and there is a direct and cheap coach service to London from Wincanton. We have a manual Honda Jazz available for exchange.
