LOCATION: Castle Cary is a very attractive south Somerset town with many of its buildings being constructed of warm ‘Cary’ stone. It has a wide variety of shops, public houses, restaurants and a church at its centre. The growing quality of independent shops has made Castle Cary a lively and interesting place to live. The town has a good primary and secondary school while the region is also well known for schools which include the Bruton schools, Hazelgrove, Millfield and the Sherborne schools to name but a few. Communication links are good with Castle Cary station linking directly with London Paddington, while road links along the A303 at Wincanton give swift access to London and the home counties via the M3/M25 route.
