The property is set back from the road and approached through a pillared entrance onto a generous driveway. Corfe offers a thriving community centred around a fine parish church with amenities to include the village inn and well used village hall. Corfe stands at the foot of the Blackdown Hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offer miles of footpaths and bridleways for those with walking and riding interests. The village of Corfe is also well placed for ease of access to these hills and to the south coast beyond. 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.
