So, where is Chilcompton?

The sought-after Somerset village of Chilcompton is perfectly situated to provide all the benefits of rural community living with proximity to commercial hubs and transport links. It is just 7-miles north of Wells, the smallest city in England, 11-miles south of the Georgian Heritage city of Bath, 16-miles from Bristol and Bristol Airport, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and farmland. Whether your preference is for the Mendip Hills, Chew Valley lake, Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral or dropping down to the Somerset levels or Glastonbury Tor (don’t worry Chilcompton is well away from the flood area and situated at 215mtrs/695ft above sea level!), this area has something for everyone.

The thriving village community benefits from a Post Office, Grocery shop, Doctors Surgery, a garage, a village Primary School with Nursery, a Garden Centre, Public Houses, Hairdressers, CofE and RC churches and has a thriving sporting community with excellent facilities for youth and adult football, cricket and tennis. There is a popular cycling, mountain biking, running and triathlon scene too. The senior catchment school is The Blue School in Wells which has an excellent reputation. There are two further independent schools nearby at Downside and Wells Cathedral School. Millfield school is approx 40mins away.

The area is saturated with good quality Golf courses too; the most immediate being Wells, Mendip and Farrington. Midsomer Norton and Wells have strong amateur rugby clubs with adult and youth teams and of course Bath Rugby provides for an exceptional day out if you want to watch the big boys play.

Direct Rail links to London are via either Castle Carey, Bath Spa or Bristol Temple Meads.
