The Old Vicarage is located in the village of Ash which has amenities including primary school, village hall, parish church and public house with the larger village of Martock having a good range of everyday facilities. The nearby towns of Somerton, Castle Cary, Yeovil and Sherborne all provide shopping, educational and recreational facilities. Villages of note nearby include Long Sutton, the Lambrooks, Kingsbury Episcopi, Tintinhull and Coat. Communications in the area include the A303 which can be joined just to the south of the village and this provides a route to London/Home Counties along the M3. There are mainline railway stations at Castle Cary with a service to London Paddington and to the south at Yeovil Junction or Sherborne with a service between Exeter St Davids and London Waterloo. The area is well known for the high quality of its education with schools including Millfield, Kings Bruton, Sherborne Boys and Sherborne Girls, St Anthony's Leweston, Sherborne Preparatory School, Perrott Hill and Hazlegrove as well as a number of well regarded state schools. Sporting facilities in the area include shooting and fishing. Horse racing is available at Bath, Exeter, Wincanton and Salisbury, as well as water sports on Sutton Bingham Reservoir to the south of Yeovil and golf at Long Sutton and Sherborne. Sailing is available on the Dorset Jurassic Coastline within relatively easy reach.


The Old Vicarage has Hamstone elevations under a slate roof. The property is believed to date from circa 1841 and was probably designed by Sampson Kempthorne, the architect famous for his workhouse and church commissions. There is excellent accommodation arranged over three floors which includes two reception rooms, kitchen, study, garden room, six bedrooms and four bathrooms. The house has been stylishly improved by the current vendors over the past three years and has features including a stone fireplace with wood burner in the sitting room, good ceiling heights on the ground floor and some windows with shutters.
