Patio & grass area for outside dining and an apple tree perfect for climbing. Off road parking included for up to two cars. otherwise free parking on the street.Nearby:Castle Cary is a popular market town with the main shops five a minute walk away & great pubs and walks nearby.The main food shops are Martins, with an excellent deli and reasonable wine selection, and the Co-op. There is a green grocer/florist further down the road and a butcher behind the old market building who makes delicious pies, with a very good wine shop next door. Banks in town are Barclays and Nat West and there is a Post Office, Boots, several hairdressers, a pet shop, fancy dress shop and even a music shop. Other shops include: clothes shops, small art shops/galleries, and interior decor shops. The George Hotel is the main watering hole and is a short stumble from the house just before you arrive at the market. On Tuesday mornings there is a bustling farmers market with an excellent organic vegetable stall. Tuesday night is pop up pizza night in Castle cary town centre!The George has a good restaurant and The Bakehouse serves excellent Thai food at lunch during the week and Friday and Saturday evenings.Walks around this area are numerous but the best one to take without needing your car is left as you walk down to town just alongside The George Hotel. Follow the path up and into the field. Climb to the top of the hill and take a breather on a bench whilst looking down onto the town and across to Glastonbury Tor.Outside of Castle Cary there is Bruton (about 10 mins by car) which is also full of unusual shops. The main attraction there though is At the Chapel in Bruton high street which is a well known restaurant and bakery. It is very relaxed and child friendly and their pizzas and bread, made on the premises are legendary. Really great for a lazy breakfast with the papers but book for weekend lunch or supper. Dog friendly garden in the Summer. Matt's Kitchen on Bruton high street, if you can book as it is only a few small tables in his own house, is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. BYOB and cash only. Excellent and imaginative food off a tiny menu created from whatever he finds in the market that week. If you like cheese then visit the Godminster Farm Shop in Bruton to pick up some of the famous organic cheddar and vodka.South Cadbury is a 15 minute drive away and you can walk around the old overgrown ramparts of Camelot. End up at the Queen's Arms in Corton Denham afterwards for a good pint and great food. Book at the weekends. Stourhead has a 2-3 hour walk and Alfred's Tower is a beautiful walk through the forest too.Other great pubs are the Talbot Inn in Mells, near Frome and it's sister pub, the Beckford Arms in Tisbury. You will need to book for either of these as they have very good restaurants.Getting aroundIt takes approximately 2.5 hours from West London by car though during busy times the A303 gets very clogged up around Stonehenge.Directions from London:Take the M3 from London, merge onto the A303 direction Andover. Come off the A303 at A371 for Wincanton then follow signs to Castle Cary. Just after you arrive in the 30mph zone on the A371 at Castle Cary, (about 10 minutes from the A303) there is a sign directing left into the town. Take this turning onto North Road and come down the hill. The gates for the house are on the right side of the road about 200 meters from the turning. If you pass the Methodist Church on the left side you have gone a few meters too far! The Nurseries is a converted industrial building with large dark grey painted windows. The large wooden gates are to the right of this house. Come on in and park your car.Castle Cary train station is a 3 minute drive away (1.5 miles) and is a direct line from PaddingtonMore
