About the area

Compton Dundon is an attractive village in one of the most picturesque parts of Somerset between Somerton and Street. It’s surrounded by unspoilt countryside with wooded hills with public access with many footpaths. There is vibrant community based around the church, cricket pitch, pub and village hall. Compton Dundon church is a sweet little parish church sitting on the site of a prehistoric grove and noteworthy for its ancient yew trees believed to date back 1,700 years. Dundon Beacon is a special and species-rich nature reserve, managed by Somerset Wildlife Trust, now being returned to ancient oak woodland with managed coppice and restored grass downland. It's accessed by a footpath and is as pleasant a country walk as can be found. Another good walk is to 'Lollover Hill, ' reputably the viewing point of the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685.

******

Somerton is an historic town about 3 miles south whilst Street is 2 miles north. These and other nearby towns provide a wide range of facilities and amenities. The A303 is a few miles south and Bath, Bristol and Yeovil are all within commuting distance. The rail station at Castle Cary provides a direct service to London. There are good state and independent schools within easy reach including Millfield, Crispins, Strode, Wells Cathedral School and the Sherborne schools.

Final Comment

The location, the views, the accommodation, the flexibility and the gardens all combine to make Meadow Bank an exceptional property which is highly recommended.
