Ilminster provides a thriving community the centre of which is dominated by the ancient Minster. The town developed further during the Georgian period with many of the properties being constructed in the local mellow Hamstone. The surrounding land is lightly wooded and is designated a Special Landscape area. Ilminster offers a full range of shopping and other amenities, with many interesting specialist shops, together with schooling at primary and intermediate levels with churches of various denominations. Ilminster has convenient road access to both the M5, junction 25 lies 11 miles to the north-west and to the A303, now dual carriageway most of the way to the M3. There are mainline railway stations at Crewkerne 7 miles (London Waterloo) and the county town of Taunton 13 miles (London Paddington). Bath, Bristol and Exeter offer excellent cultural and shopping facilities within easy travelling distance. The World Heritage designated coastline lies 18 miles to the South.
From the roundabout on the A303 on the outskirts of Ilminster proceed into Ilminster and at the first mini roundabout bear left heading towards the town. Continue over the zebra crossing and take the next left hand turning into Winterhay Lane. Follow this road and when the houses end turn right onto an unmade road and continue around to the left and follow this lane to the very end where the property will be found.
