The twin Somerset villages of Gurney Slade and Binegar can be found just four miles north of Shepton Mallet nestling on the eastern edge of the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Well served by local inns and a well-stocked village shop and Post Office, the area also abounds in lovely walks which criss-cross the lush countryside.

The Royal Bath and West Showground, just south of Shepton Mallet is the site of one of Britain's major agricultural shows, held here annually in May/June, whilst many other events are staged regularly throughout the year.
