If you are seeking peace and tranquility you will find it in this rural haven far away from the suburban rush of city life. Road noise is practically non-existent and there is no light pollution. At night you can almost touch the stars. There is a local pub just a fifteen-minute walk through the estate and down a track serving good beers and wines and a choice of freshly cooked meals. For your everyday essentials there is a village community shop five minutes’ drive away run by volunteers seven days a week selling everything from your papers to locally baked cakes. Your nearest large town is Yeovil which is 9 miles away.
Apart from the owners Jonathan & Rosie Lewis and their personal guests, the farm estate is yours to explore.

From here you can also enjoy the many bridleways and footpaths in the immediate area.
