Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the east side of the A38 and overlooked by Wavering Down and Crooks Peak is the ever popular medieval town of Axbridge (www.axbridge-tc.gov.uk). This Somerset town is packed with 'old world' charm and its Medieval beginnings are still evident in some of its oldest buildings. An important wool-producer in the Middle Ages, the town has always been at the centre of things, indeed it was a river port in earlier times. This was reflected in its early royal charters allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough. It even had its own mint, with coins showing the town's symbol: the Lamb and Flag. There is far less through traffic nowadays, but the layout of the town has changed little over the centuries, a medieval town expanding on a fortified Saxon burgh. Axbridge is well served for local facilities include post office, general stores, primary (www.axbridgefirstschool.co.uk) and middle (www.fairlands.somerset.sch.uk) schools (Fairlands being in Cheddar) and a number of restaurants. Further facilities are available in the nearby villages of Winscombe and Cheddar and as mentioned, primary and nursery schools are available at Weare and Axbridge with older children attending Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) or private/public schools at Sidcot, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. The town has good access to the City of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20), St. Georges (junction 21) and Edithmead (junction 22). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to a mainline railway station at Yatton.
