Location Map and Directions
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.
