There are excellent schools in both state and private sectors, as well as access to the M5 motorway network via junction 25 and the main line rail service from Taunton station to London Paddington is under 2 hours. Taunton is the home of Somerset County cricket and Taunton racecourse for those with sporting interests.

Here there is a detached stone built garage of Blue Lias elevations under a pitched tiled roof with a store shed to the rear. A garden path leads to the front door where there is a small patio area, ideal for Al Fresco dining and summer entertaining which is contained
