LOCATION: Templecombe is situated in the beautiful Somerset countryside and is well placed for the many amenities on offer, including a mainline railway station (London Waterloo 2hrs), post office, welcoming community café and Co-op convenience store. There is the village Church, primary school and doctor's surgery with dispensary, and the village hall offers space for community clubs (bowls, youth, mums & toddlers), while the recreation ground has a tennis court and skate park. A big attraction of Templecombe is its accessibility, being situated close to both the A303 and the A30 with fast routes east and west towards the motorway network. The mainline station is an obvious draw, while local comprehensive shopping, cultural and leisure amenities are found close by in the towns of Sherborne, Wincanton, Shaftesbury and Yeovil. To the south, the World Heritage Jurassic coast is within easy striking distance. The area is renowned for its schools, both independent and state and the surrounding countryside, much of which is an area of outstanding natural beauty, is a playground for sporting and leisure pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling, golf and field sports. There are village cricket clubs close by and sailing and other water sports are readily accessible on the south coast.
