Keepers Cottage is well situated on the elevated northern edge of the highly favoured South Somerset village of Drayton which is designated as a Conservation Area in order to preserve its character and the many fine period properties of various styles.

The village has a pretty 15th century parish church, inn and hall. Drayton’s active community hosts an annual street fair and monthly markets in the village hall.
