The farm surrounding this family home extends to nearly 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.
For car hire in the South West of England, see – Williams Selfdrive – website; their cars are all manual. For local taxis please see the directory on the Castle Cary town website www.castle-cary.co.uk/transport-garages/ – Chinnock Taxis – website or my Local taxi list.
It is advisable to book taxis as early as possible especially at weekends. If you are going to a wedding and will be leaving your car there, please book a taxi to bring you back before you leave here! Also, it is a good idea to ask the taxi driver to return on Sunday morning to take you back to collect your car.
