The track is a rather bumpy one so care needed when driving along this to reach the property, but once at the property, the driveway in front of the house is laid to tarmac and property is tidy and well looked after!

There is a Tescos a 1 minute drive away and Midsomer Norton town centre is approximately a 3 minute drive where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and various takeaways (Indian, Thai, Chinese, Fish & Chips, Greek, Dominoes)

There is a cycle path a short ride / walk away which connects Midsomer Norton through to Radstock. The Mining Museum and the Somerset and Dorset Railway are 2 local tourist attractions within short driving distance (or a nice walk or cycle for those keen walkers or cyclists!)

There is also the fabulous Farrington Farm Shop (approx 1 minute drive away) selling local produce and a great little cafe serving good home cooked food and fantastic homemade cake! Here there is also a Soft Play Barn and a childrens' outside play area where the children can also meet the local farm animals so a great little stop for breakfast or lunch.

As this property is at the end of a row of cottages we kindly ask for you to respect our lovely neighbours in terms of noise, especially after 10pm Thankyou!

Old Mills, Paulton, England, United Kingdom

Midsomer Norton is a small old mining town - there is a main high street shops, pubs and restuarants and take always and a visitor attraction of the Somerset & Dorset Railway.
Radstock Mining Museum is also a recommend place to visit.

The property is in a row of old Miners Cottages which were used to house mining families working at the local Old Mills pit. From the front of the house you can still see the remaining old slag heap which is a visible land mark that can be seen from a fair few miles away!

Midsomer Norton is an excellent central location to explore Bath, Bristol, Wells and Cheddar.
