The Hamlet of Knole, tucked away from main roads and surrounded by beautiful country has remained unspoilt, due, in part, to strict planning controls and, in part to the wisdom of farsighted landowners including The Duchy of Cornwall, whose policy has been to preserve the environment.
The nearest village is Long Sutton, a thriving community centred on the village church, the Devonshire Arms Inn with its excellent reputation and the first class village shop.
Within a short drive, the market towns of Somerton and Langport have a good range of facilities and all the main towns in the area are within easy reach. Of importance is the regular mainline rail service from Castle Carey to London Paddington (about 100 minutes).
