About the area
Lottisham is a delightful quiet Hamlet surrounded in wonderful countryside and close to the larger villages of Baltonsborough and West Lydford.
The thriving village of Baltonsborough has a church, primary school, village hall, pub, winery and a large new shop - The Balsbury Grocer. This is a new shop and cafe in the village offering a superb array of everyday groceries with artisan and locally produced breads, pastries and other deli type foods also on offer. Within the stores is a cafe too which has proved to be an excellent meeting place for local residents.
The village also has a very friendly community with a number of societies and organisations. In the other direction is Lydford with a mini supermarket/petrol station and another thriving pub - The Cross Keys Inn.
The nearby villages provide ample amenities and facilities including several primary schools. Also there are excellent state and independent schools in the wider area including Ansford, Hazelgrove, Wells Blue School, Strode College, Wells Cathedral School, Millfield and the Bruton schools.
On the outskirts of the nearby town of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a few miles south.
