Surrounding Areas

The hamlet of Moolham lies on the southern fringes of the medieval market town of Ilminster.
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 Ilminster town centre proceed in a southerly direction along Ditton Street towards Chard. Just after leaving the town turn left into Moolham Lane signposted Dowlish Wake and Kingstone. After about 400 yards there are some white marker posts and a turning will be seen on the right hand side, with the name of the house shown clearly on the fencing at the drive entrance.
