West Pennard is a very popular village in beautiful countryside near Glastonbury and Wells. It is an active village with an excellent primary school, a village hall and popular pub. Nearby Glastonbury is a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets. Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells which is the smallest city in England (population 10,000). Its centre is the market place (local markets twice a week) surrounded by many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. It has several supermarkets including Waitrose.West Pennard is also close to Shepton Mallet which holds weekly markets , has several supermarkets and the usual amenities of a small town.The larger towns of Bath, Bristol and Yeovil are all within easy commuting distance.
