Nice location to get into Taunton easily, surrounded by fields and the swimming pool is great. The laundry room is very good too and the open plan accommodation is very nice. Leather sofas, flat screen TV. You can walk to a pub in minutes and get free range fresh eggs just round the corner. Overall very nice and would recommend
