The Cider House enjoys a delightful tucked away location just off the centre of this sought after village. The village centre is within walking distance and an adjacent footpath provides a shortcut into Manor Lane giving access to the village centre. North Curry is a sought after village providing an active community with many local clubs, organisations and amenities to include a primary school, doctors surgery, shop/post office, tearooms, playing fields, cricket club, pub and a fine parish church. North Curry enjoys an accessible location being within striking distance of the A358 providing fast and convenient access to Ilminster and the A303 to the south and Taunton and the M5 Motorway to the north.
Leave Taunton in a southerly direction on the A358 heading towards Ilminster. At the Thornfalcon traffic lights turn left onto the A378 towards Langport. Almost immediately turn left again towards North Curry. Proceed into this village and continue along Stoke Road heading towards Stoke St Gregory. About a ¼ mile beyond the village centre turn right into White Street and take the first turning right into Longs Field. On entering Longs Field bear right and then bear left into the driveway to the Cider House. Follow this drive to the end where the Cider House will be found on the right hand side.
