Oldway Lodge is located in an attractive position close to the centre of this beautiful and sought after unique hilltop village accessed by sunken lanes (holloways).
Hinton St George is particularly picturesque and has a wide main street lined with hamstone houses, some of which are thatched.
It is in an idyllic, peaceful situation surrounded by unspoilt countryside, a conservation village, outstanding heritage settlement and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There is good access to the A30 and A303 and is therefore well placed for access to London, the South East and South West and the many good independent schools in Dorset and Somerset.
The village has a First School, a Parish Church, an award winning Gastro Pub, The Lord Poulett Arms, Village Shop and Post Office.
The business centres of Exeter, Taunton, Yeovil and Sherborne are easily accessible whilst the International Airport of Exeter is within 40 minutes drive and Bristol Airport is approximately 1 hour away.
A main line railway service to London Waterloo is available from Crewkerne or Yeovil Junction.
The area is well served by an excellent range of renowned schools including Perrott Hill, Hazlegrove, Millfield, Sherborne Prep, Sherborne School for Girls, Sherborne School and King’s and Queen’s Colleges at Taunton.
Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf near Cricket St Thomas, Honiton, Chillington and Halstock.
Sailing and water sports are available at Sutton Bingham Reservoir to the south of Yeovil as well as along the south coast. There is also horse racing at Taunton, Exeter and Wincanton.
