Lower Hayne is situated on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills, within the parish of Corfe. The Blackdown Hills are designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and provide miles of footpaths and bridleways which are well suited to those with equestrian and walking interest. The village of Corfe is a thriving community, with public house, parish church and Pickeridge Golf Club can be found nearby. Taunton, the County Town, provides a comprehensive range of recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities as well as a main line railway station and M5 Motorway interchange.
Leave Taunton in a southerly direction on the South Road passing over the motorway and racecourse and proceed into the village of Corfe. Continue through the village, passing the church and the public house and take the road out of the village onto the Blackdown Hills. Continue past the left hand turning to Pickeridge Golf Course and the property will be found on the left hand side as you proceed up the hill.
