From M5 Junction 25 (near Taunton)

At this junction take the A358 road towards Ilminster for about 9 miles. Don't go into Ilminster, but take the A303(T) Ilminster bypass towards Ilchester at the roundabout. At the end of the bypass (after about six miles) you will come to another roundabout near South Petherton. Take a sharp right hand turn (4th exit) onto the old road towards Ilminster, and drive past the Esso garage. About 300 metres from the roundabout take a left turn into Over Stratton. Go almost to the end of the main village road, driving about 50 metres past a telephone box. Tanwyn is on the right hand side of the road, the first house of the second pair of semi-detached cottages.


From the East (Yeovil / Ilchester directions)

Proceed either from Yeovil (on the A3088, or through Montacute and Stoke-sub-Hambdon on the old road) until you join the A303, or from Ilchester on the A303 westwards. You will come to a roundabout near South Petherton. Take the second exit on this and drive past the Esso garage, then proceed as above.


From the South (Crewkerne)

Take the road towards Merriott. Follow this road past Merriott and Lopen. Just after you leave Lopen there is a very dangerous double bend. Drive past this until you reach a roundabout, near which is a pub named The Poulett Arms. Turn right (East) on the third exit towards Ilchester. Drive for about three quarters of a mile into a village called Watergore. Just past this is a right hand turn into Over Stratton. Take this and proceed as above.


Access to Tanwyn

Keys are with Mr and Mrs P Tanswell, who live about 200 metres up the road (North) from Tanwyn, on the opposite side where the road bends. The name of their house is 'The Gables' and is the end house of a three house terrace. The keys will need to be collected from there if no-one is present at Tanwyn itself.
