Higher Yarde Farm is approached over a 150m drive way flanked by snow drops, fast flowing stream and mature trees and gives access to the generous gravelled parking turning area and garaging.
The delightfully landscaped gardens need to be seen to be appreciated and have historically been open to the public under the national gardener scheme and enjoy large expanse of lawns with a variety of indigenous trees and arboretum, and well stocked beds incorporating flowers and shrubs, orchard and enclosed kitchen garden. The stream meanders its way through the garden and is crossed at various points by three foot bridges allowing delightful views to be enjoyed across the surrounding countryside. There is a sunken swimming pool and summer house.
Higher Yarde Farm is situated in a convenient, yet "tucked away" location, at the foot of the Quantock Hills, in a no through road, with stunning rural views. The local village of Staplegrove offers a shop and parish church, whilst the County Town of Taunton provides a comprehensive range of recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities as well as a main line railway station and M5 Motorway interchange.
Proceed out of Taunton on the Staplegrove road towards Minehead. At the traffic lights turn right into Manor Road and proceed into Staplegrove village. Take the first left hand turn after the church into Rectory Road and continue out of the village. At the 'T' junction turn right and proceed for a short distance and turn left sign posted to Edgeborough. Take this no through road, passing Stone House Farm on the right hand side and after a short distance the driveway to Higher Yarde Farm can clearly be seen on the left hand side.
