Butleigh is surrounded by rural countryside, farmland and wooded hills with a myriad of footpaths over many miles for great country walks straight from the house. This popular village has a thriving shop and post office, an excellent pub, primary school and nursery and a very active cricket club as well as the “Drawing Room” tea room/café. Recently there has been a “Heritage Trail” retelling the history of the old properties within the village and all the stories that they have to offer.
For shopping, “Clark’s village” in Street offers a wealth of retail opportunities with more shopping and local amenities to be found in nearby Glastonbury, Somerton, Wells and Castle Cary. For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within about an hour’s drive. The A303 that runs south of Butleigh offers direct road links to London and the South west.
There are good rail transport links to London from Castle Cary railway station, (just about 20 mins drive), which offers an excellent direct rail service to London Paddington in less than two hours. Also, Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
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 1000 years 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.
Equally close is the picturesque town of Somerton, originally the county town of Somerset and before that, possibly the capital of Wessex. Its focal point is the wide 17th Century Market Square with a Buttercross in the centre. The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael, is quite plain externally but contains one of the finest wooden roofs in the county carved by the monks at Muchelney Abbey.
Somerton offers all the usual amenities of a market town and has a small independent supermarket.
Local independent schools include Millfield just 5 mins away with Wells Cathedral School, All Hallows and Hazlegrove prep schools and the various Bruton schools all within easy distance. State schools include St. Dunstan’s, Wells Blue and nearby Strode College
