The well regarded hamlet of Payton is in a beautiful part of Somerset with rolling countryside, which remains completely unspoilt. Whilst the setting is rural, the area is by no means isolated benefiting from relatively easy access to national communication links and surrounding villages which maintain active communities including churches, primary schools, popular pubs, village hall, butchers and general shops.
The nearby town of Wellington is within 2 miles which offers supermarkets, including Waitrose, and a range of independent shops. Nearby, Taunton provides a more extensive range of amenities associated with a County Town. Both Wellington and Taunton provide an excellent range of independent schools.
The M5 is easily accessible at Wellington, Taunton and Tiverton, providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Taunton and Tiverton.
