Location Map and Directions

Somerset Location Map - Clanville Manor, The Tallet Holiday Cottage and Lone Oak Cottage

The idyllic grounds of this family home extend to 200 acres and whilst they are secluded, the bustling Somerset town of Castle Cary is within 2 miles.

Clanville Manor is in a rural location about a mile from Castle Cary railway station (on the B3153 road). This road runs between the A371 Wincanton to Shepton Mallet road, and the A37 Yeovil to Bristol road.

Public transport is sometimes erratic, taxis are expensive and hard to find. So, it is highly recommended that you have your own car to explore the area fully.

Our white gate and cattle grid are just under the railway bridge. Most vehicles can use the cattle grid; there is no need to open the gate. Take care on the drive as there are ‘speed bumps’, drive around to the back of the house. B&B and Tallet guests please open the gate marked ‘Guests’ car park’ and park in the gravelled car park. Please close the car park gate and turn around to face the house and cottage. Follow the signs and the path through the gateway in the wall and to the front garden and front door. Guests for Lone Oak cottage should park outside the Guests’ car park and come to the front door.
