The Lynch is situated in a wonderful private rural location in a beautiful part of the Somerset rolling countryside, which remains unspoilt.

The nearby small town of Wellington is within 2 miles and offers a range of independent shops and a superb Waitrose, whilst Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, provides a more extensive range of amenities associated with a major regional centre. Junction 26 of the M5 motorway is easily accessible at Wellington and access can also be gained to the motorway at Junction 25 Taunton and Junction 27 Tiverton, all providing links to Devon and Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Taunton train station taking approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, whilst Bristol and Exeter international airports provide a number of domestic and international flights, including daily morning and evening flights to City Airport (1 hour). London Heathrow by train is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The Lynch is well situated to take advantage of the numerous well renowned public schools in the local area. Wellington School is just 2 miles from the property, whilst Taunton is home to Kings, Queens and Taunton School and Tiverton benefits from Blundells School. The area surrounding The Lynch is lovely rolling countryside, with no close neighbours. There is easy access to the north to Exmoor National Park and to the east The Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst both the north coast and south coasts are easily accessible.DESCRIPTION
The Lynch sits on the site of two former game keepers cottages on the edge of the original Nynehead Estate and planning permission was granted, in 1991, to construct an exceptional detached house. The original construction started in 1992 with an outstanding specification and has been much enhanced and extended by the current owners in recent years. The entire property now commands an exceptionally high level of finish and all improvements have been executed with flawless taste and exceptional attention to detail.ACCOMMODATION
