LOCATION: North Barrow is a small village tucked away in rolling unspoilt countryside, yet having excellent access to many towns and locations. Castle Cary, the nearest town, is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Bruton, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by. On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington (90 minutes). Templecombe station is 11 miles south with its direct line to Waterloo. The A303 road link is just over 3 miles south. The newly opened ‘The Newt in Somerset’, is home to beautiful countryside walks set in the grounds of a Georgian country estate. Within the estate are a Hotel and Spa, Farm Shop, restaurants and house and garden shop. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including a number of village primary schools, Millfield, the Sherborne and Bruton Schools, Wells Cathedral, Hazelgrove, Port Regis and St Mary’s Shaftesbury. On the sporting side there are several golf courses nearby, various equestrian activities including racing at Wincanton and Bath, and lots of other societies and clubs for a huge cross section of activities.
