Yew Tree Cottage is situated in the conservation village of North Curry, which is based around an attractive square with an interesting variety of period houses and cottages. Within the village there is a thriving community with facilities to include a primary school, parish church, post office/village shop, health centre and coffee shop. Taunton, the County Town, provides a comprehensive range of recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities as well as a main line railway station and M5 Motorway interchange.
Leave the M5 at Junction 25 and immediately take the A358 towards Ilminster. At the Thornfalcon traffic lights at the top of the hill, turn left onto the A378 signposted to Langport. After a short distance turn left towards North Curry. Follow this road into the village and proceed down Windmill Hill and the property will be found on the right hand side before the turning to Town Close on the left hand side.
