About the area
Aller is a small but popular village, set in lovely open countryside near the larger town of Langport. Within the village there is a pub, church and village hall. The nearest town is Langport which has a supermarket, veterinary centre, pharmacy, and a number of shops, restaurants and pubs.
The area provides a good network for walking, riding and cycling whilst there are a number of small towns nearby which provide for most needs. Larger towns including Bristol, Taunton and Yeovil are in easy commuting distance. All combine to provide cultural, commercial, social and sporting amenities. The railway station at Yeovil Junction has a direct line to London Waterloo and Castle Cary links to Paddington in less than 2 hours. The M5 (J25) can be joined at Bridgwater (about 10 miles) and the A303 trunk road is about 10 miles south. Bristol International Airport is 29 miles distant.
There are excellent state and independent schools including Millfield, Sherborne, Hazelgrove, Leweston, the Bruton, and Taunton School, Wells Cathedral School, Huish Episcopi Academy and Sixth Form colleges at both Richard Huish, Taunton and Strode College in Street.
Sporting facilities include a good number of syndicated shoots, hunting with various packs, racing (at Wincanton, Taunton, Exeter & Bath), several good golf courses and numerous clubs for a wide variety of sports (cricket, tennis, squash, rugby, football, etc.). There are also many cultural and artistic societies and organisations within this very active and friendly community of Somerset.
It's also a fascinating historical area with roman remains, its past as Alfred’s capital of Wessex, its later reference in the Domesday Book and its partial ownership by the great abbeys of Muchelney and Glastonbury before the dissolution of the monasteries. The Battle of Langport in 1645 in the Civil War was close by as was the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685 in the Monmouth Rebellion.
From Langport take the A372 towards Bridgwater. Continue for a few miles and continue through the village of Aller. Where the road bends left take the first right turn (signposted Beer and Highham) with a sign to “Cider”. After 200 yards pass the Dairy House Farm on the right hand side and also continue past the Cider Farm.
Continue for several hundred yards further and take the drive on the left (next to a cottage - Hill View) which leads into the property.
