Withial is an extremely quiet small hamlet close to the village
of East Pennard which is one of the area's best kept secrets, it's not on the
route to anywhere and has virtually no through traffic. The village has a
population of about 350 and includes a Grade 1 listed 14th century church and a
handful of farms, houses and cottages. The village is situated conveniently
just off the A37 giving you a great location to access the nearby towns of
Wells and Frome as well as the fashionable town of Bruton. Pilton is just down
the road and is a very sought after village, notable for its pretty stone
cottages and rolling hills and of course Glastonbury Festival. Residents of
East Pennard receive complimentary Glastonbury Festival Tickets.
Pilton is a very active village, it has numerous clubs, a playgroup, a bus to a
local primary school, very smart village hall (which hosts the Post Office),
playground, playing fields with clubhouse and a public house. There are many
events throughout the year, but most notable is the very well attended
September Pilton weekend including village flower show and fete, barn dance,
tug of war, cricket match and ‘fun sports day’ (see www.piltonvillage.co.uk).
Nearby is the ancient city of Wells, which is the smallest Cathedral city in
England, and offers all the usual amenities that you would expect in a small
town including banks, doctors surgeries, dentists and a selection of primary
schools and the excellent Blue School and Wells Cathedral school. The high
street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a
variety of independent shops and restaurants and pubs as well as a twice weekly
market and a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose, Tesco, Lidl and
Morrisons. At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s
Palace and Vicars’ Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street
The Wells Festivals are increasing in popularity each year with the Literary
Festival now taking place over two weeks and attracting big names in the
literary world, the very well attended Food Festival and many regular Arts
festivals. With both the Cathedral School and the Cathedral itself there are
endless opportunities for musical concerts, plus regular shows and comedy
nights in the Little Theatre.
Fifteen minutes away is the very fashionable small town of Bruton which has the
very popular restaurant/coffee/bread shop called ‘At the Chapel’ and the world
famous Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery.
Nearby, Frome is one of the South West’s leading market towns and was recently
featured in the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Somerset. It has
become a “foodie hipster haven” due to the influx of young families, with St
Catherine’s hill at the centre of the artisan quarter. The town has a comprehensive
choice of retail outlets and all the usual amenities. Founded in 2013, the
“Frome Independent” is an award winning independent street market that is held
on the first Sunday of every month and attracts 80,000 people a year.
