The house is set in beautiful gardens and has been widely used as a film set, notably in 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Wolf Hall'. The village centre and conservation area features an array of picturesque hamstone cottages, two thriving pubs, a Post Office, and a fascinating radio and television museum. Locally, there are lovely walks to be had to the nearby Ham Hill and St Michael's Hill where a folly affords wonderful views across the Somerset Levels and beyond. The nearby bustling town of Yeovil provides a wide variety of shops and restaurants as well as a lively theatre.
