From the A30 between Crewkerne and Chard turn south, just west of the entrance to Cricket St Thomas Hotel on the B3167, signposted Axminster. After 1/4 of a mile take the first turning left signpost Lubborn Cheese and follow this road for 3/4 of a mile, turning left at the lane signposted 'unsuitable for HGV's' Follow this lane down and right ( do not cross the cattle grid) until you are facing a sign for Hollowells: turn left. Google will get you this far, but not the house, it is the last one on the lane with a 2 on the letter box.


Medium Risk - It should also be noted that the property was subject to a flood caused by the run off from the field behind and that since then a french drain has been installed and a field drain has also been dug to take the water around the property to the stream.
