Stoke Road is set off South Road and this area includes a fine selection of period homes in what is considered to be one of the best residential locations in Taunton. Number 1 enjoys a pleasant setting, sheltered from the road and just a stone’s throw from the useful amenities of Mountfields which include a post office, small supermarket, butchers and vets surgery. Kings College, Richard Huish College and Bishops Fox’s school are all very close by and a footpath from Mountfields Road provides a pleasant alternative route to the town centre through the lovely Vivary Park and High Street. Taunton benefits from shops and leisure facilities worthy of the regional centre it has become and, for travellers, there is access to the M5 Motorway at junction 25 together with an Intercity railway station.
