Horsington is a small village set in beautiful countryside between the towns of Wincanton and Somerset. Horsington has a pub and a church, duck pond and playground. Templecombe is the nearest main-line train station with regular trains to London and the West Country, and has a small shop with post-office. Wincanton is a thriving town with a lively high street with a butcher, green grocer, delicatessen, wine shop, post office, cafes, take-aways and pubs. The local race course hosts world class racing during the season. Somerset is a beautiful county with stunning scenery, good local produce and good connections with trains to London and the main roads A303 and M5. The coast is approximately an hour away. It is a good base from which to explore the West Country.
