About the area

With excellent transport links, Kingsdon lies halfway between the Roman settlement of Ilchester and the ancient market town of Somerton and retains an old-world charm. There is no through traffic and a wealth of historic cottages and elegant houses of individual character line the quiet streets.
The 13th Century church, lovely old pub with great food, community shop, village hall and numerous clubs and activities all help to add to the unique spirit of this very special place. Much of the parish is farmed retaining a traditional small field structure, which is particularly beneficial to a wide range of wildlife.
