Situation 

The North Somerset village of Winscombe was recently placed as the second best place in Britain to raise a family by family investment firm OneFamily (survey in 2015) and is nestled in the beautiful Mendip countryside within commuting distance of Bristol. Its atmosphere is one of bustling activity, with a variety of shops, professional offices and community facilities including church, doctor and primary school (www.winscombewoodborough.n-somerset.sch.uk). Winscombe is in the Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill-academy.org) catchment area for secondary education, which has recently been awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and also benefits from a modern sports complex, and there is also a dry ski slope nearby. Private sector schooling is also close by at Sidcot and the Downs School at Wraxall is within easy reach. Country activities available within the area include horse-riding, walking on the Mendips and sailing on Axbridge Reservoir, and there are also several excellent golf courses in the area. The lovely cathedral city of Wells is a drive away, as is the famous beauty spot, Cheddar Gorge. As mentioned, Winscombe is within commuting distance of Bristol but also has good access to the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and the M5 at junction 21 to travel north or junction 22 to travel south. There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to a mainline railway station at Weston. 

Directions 

From Bristol take the A38 for approximately 15 miles just beyond the village of Sidcot, turn right into Winscombe Hill and after following this lane for about 1 mile past the church, take the second turning on the left, sign posted Barton and Loxton. Follow this road for 1 mile and on the left-hand side you will see a gate signed Walnut Hill, proceed to the top of the drive to the house.
