About the area 
Castle Cary, described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, lies in beautiful unspoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques within the Conservation Area in which a policy of strict planning control operates to prevent inappropriate development. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Shaftesbury, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by and Salisbury, Taunton, Bath and Bristol are in easy driving distance.

There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Ansford Academy (excellent exam grades), the Sherborne and Bruton schools, Millfield, Wells Cathedral, Hazelgrove, Port Regis and St. Mary's Shaftesbury. Lorien House is very conveniently situated within walking distance of the town centre and enjoys views to Lodge Hill. The house has bags of character and has been gently improved over the years without diminishing its character. These works have included fitting double glazed sash windows, and appropriate sympathetic decoration. It's very comfortable and appealing and benefits from gas central heating.
