Situation The property occupies a rural position on the very edge of Chaffcombe Village. Chaffcombe is a small South Somerset village with a parish church, village hall and its own historic waterwheel situated in the woods near the reservoir. The popular Chard reservoir & nature reserve is just to the south west of the village and popular with anglers, bird-watchers and walkers alike.
There is also access to a fantastic cycle-path (part of the Sustrans route 33) which provides an excellent pathway from Chard to Ilminster along the route of the former disused railway line. The nearby market town of Chard has plenty to offer including new leisure centre with swimming pool and gymnasium, cottage minor injury hospital, high street banks, independent shops and three supermarkets.
The smaller market towns of Ilminster and Crewkerne are within easy driving distance with Crewkerne benefiting from a Waitrose supermarket and rail line into London Waterloo. This area of South Somerset remains unspoilt and whilst it lies within easy reach of the lovely Jurassic coastline, with historic seaside town Lyme Regis within 30 minutes" drive, it also offers excellent road links such as the A30 and A358 (which in turn connects to the M5 and A303).
