Whyte House is situated in the Historic town of Langport overlooking the Somerset levels, one of England’s most unchanged landscapes. This small thriving town has a wide range of facilities including health care facilities, supermarket shops, banks, library doctors, dentists, public house, cafes, churches and primary school. The town is becoming increasingly popular, perhaps partly due to the very stylish restaurant cafe´ and deli shop known as ‘Kitchen’. There are pleasant walks around the town and attractive picnic areas beside the river.
Somerton provides similar amenities and there are also the nearby bigger towns of Glastonbury, Street and larger commercial centres in Taunton and Yeovil all within easy reach which offer a full range of sporting, recreational, shopping and arts facilities.
Communications to this area are excellent with the A303/M3 to London; the A303 dual carriageway is about 5 miles away which leads to the M5 at Taunton. Railway connections are also good with Castle Cary and Taunton serving London Paddington and Yeovil/Sherborne serving London Waterloo.
There are several excellent schools for children of all ages within reasonable driving time including in the independent sector: Millfield, Hazelgrove, The Bruton Schools, Sherborne Schools, and Taunton schools. There are also superb primary schools in Langport, High Ham (nearby village) and Long Sutton as well as the nearby Huish Academy State School and Strode Sixth Form College in Street.
Please do not follow google maps as the house cannot be accessed in the way it looks on the map.
