The town developed further during the Georgian period with many of the properties being constructed in the local mellow Ham stone. The surrounding land is lightly wooded and is designated a Special Landscape area.

Bath, Bristol and Exeter offer excellent cultural and shopping facilities within easy travelling distance. The World Heritage designated coastline lies 18 miles to the South.
