the year. The village has a Spar shop, cafe, pub, church, village hall, primary school, garage, petrol station and car wash, two working farms, several families of resident ducks on the river and of course, the castle. There are lots of beautiful woodland and riverside walks within the village, and events throughout the year including the established 'Nunney Street Fayre' in August, a flower show and open gardens, and an Easter Day duck race and bonnet competition. Other local attractions include Longleat House and safari park, Stourhead House and gardens, Hauser and Wirth gallery and farm shop Bruton, The Newt in Somerset, Clarks village shops, and plenty of well-regarded farm shops. There are a variety of supermarkets in the area. Bristol airport is 25 miles North West
and Bristol city 26 miles away. The city of Bath is 16 miles North.
Frome Station has a mainline station to London Paddington,
which is a 1hr 30mins train journey. There is a plethora of superb schools in both the state and private sector, including the Bruton schools, Downside, All Hallows, and then the great schools of Sherborne or Bath a little further afield.
The Old Post Office is thought to be the oldest house in the village, originally built (during the 14th or 15th century) to serve the castle with ironmongery, smithery and saddlery. It comprises two cottages from ancient barn origins set in an L-shape, which were combined centuries ago into one property. It was the village Post Office during the late 20th Century for a few decades. Although right in the village centre, the house enjoys a secluded little plot of its own without being overlooked by neighbouring properties. There is a pretty, south-facing courtyard garden full of David Austin roses and lavender, bordered by Dutch walling of local Ashlar stone.
There is a pretty stone gravelled south-facing courtyard garden to the front, with pots and beds filled with shrubs, roses, lavender, a white wisteria, clematis and Spring bulbs giving subtle colour and scent each season, with space for a table and chairs to catch the sun.
