The village has a well-regarded primary school and there are excellent state and independent schools in the area including St. Crispins, Strode College, Millfield and Wells Cathedral School. The surrounding Somerset countryside is quite outstanding and very accessible with many footpaths and nature reserves close to hand.

The former farmhouse is a handsome Grade ll listed 18th century building being stone built under a triple Roman tiled roof.
