The property is located approximately half a mile from the town centre and is ideally placed for access to the A30 and the nearby supermarkets. This area of South Somerset remains unspoilt and whilst it lies within easy reach of the lovely Jurassic coastline, with historic seaside towns such as Lyme Regis within 30 minutes’ drive, it also offers the best of both worlds with excellent road links such as the A30 and A358 (which in turn connects to the M5 and A303). A whole range of local market towns provide everything you need for day to day living. Whilst Chard has plenty to offer including high street banks, independent shops, three supermarkets and B&Q store, there are also the smaller market towns of Ilminster and Crewkerne within easy driving distance. The pretty market town of Ilminster has a lovely range of independent stores, butchers, delicatessen and hardware store mostly clustered around the historic Minster church. Crewkerne has a mainline station and Waitrose supermarket, whilst Axminster also has a railway station on the same mainline.
