Our home

This is a wonderful homely large house with bright, airy big rooms in typical 19th century Georgian style. It is set in the stunning and quiet Somerset village of West Chinnock which is ideally situated only 5 minutes from important road links to London and Cornwall and within easy reach of Taunton and Yeovil. We are a family of 5 and the house is our main home and is much loved. The garden is secluded but leads directly onto village fields and the village cricket ground. There are lots of great pubs near by including one in the village. We are on the edge of a country park called Ham Hill with cycling, climbing and lots of walking with views over the Somerset Levels. You can have food internet delivered by the local supermarket while you are here and you are only 40 minutes from some wonderful fish restaurants in the historic seaside town of Lyme Regis. We have broadband internet access and wifi, tv and stereos in most rooms with leads for ipods and iphones. We have loads of fridge and freezer space and car parking for 5 cars. Lots of hot water for baths and showers and great friendly neighbours!

Property features

Who we are

  1. Our family consists of our 16 year old son,Luke, and 13 and 8 year old daughters, Maddy and Bea, and a new puppy called Coco! I am a dietitian and my husband is an osteopath and we work mainly from home. We want to travel with the kids for 6 weeks next year as this will be the last time that we are likely to convince our 16 year old to come away with us as part of the original 'family unit'! All the kids will be old enough now to appreciate a family adventure and we want to travel from Thailand down to Bali, staying in Bali for about 4 weeks. It should be the trip of a life time and give us many memories to talk about for years to come!
