Orchard Barn is situated between the historic and charming villages of Muchelney and Drayton, just over 3 miles from the thriving market town of Langport. It enjoys an attractive semi rural location which, together with the adjacent properties forms an attractive courtyard setting with attractive rural views. Drayton is a popular village with amenities to include pub and church, whilst the larger thriving country town of Langport has a supermarket, doctors' and dental surgery, primary school and a number of specialist shops. Taunton, the county town, is just over 12 miles to the west with a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities whilst Junction 25 of the M5 Motorway can be found on the outskirts of the town. Taunton also has an intercity rail link to London (Paddington). Other regional centres include Yeovil, Bridgwater and Street (Millfield School) whilst access to the A303 is about 8 miles away.
From Taunton and Junction 25 of the M5 Motorway proceed in a south easterly direction on the A358 towards Ilminster. At the Thornfalcon traffic lights turn left onto the A378 towards Langport. On reaching the village of Curry Rivel, continue past the petrol station on your right hand side and take the next right hand turning signposted towards Drayton. Proceed into Drayton and continue through the village and into open countryside. Proceed through the bends and Orchard Barn will be seen shortly thereafter on the right hand side.
