The Old Rectory is set in the centre of this small village having glorious views over the historic Levels with its abundance of wildlife. Burrowbridge has a village pub and a small church and is about three miles from the nearest village of Stoke St Gregory with its good range of day to day amenities. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, is some ten miles away to the south west and provides a good shopping centre with many of the well know high street retailers and excellent sports facilities, being home of the County Cricket Ground and also having three well known independent schools, King's and Queen's Colleges and Taunton School. Other well-known independent schools are also within reach, namely Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Kings School Bruton and Sherborne.
The M5 motorway (J24) can be reached within 5 miles, which to the south gives access to Taunton, Exeter and Cornwall, whilst to the north the M5 takes you on to the A38 giving access to Bristol Airport. For alternative destinations the A303 is within easy access, Exeter Airport also provides many European and international flights. There is a mainline railway station at Taunton with fast trains to London, Paddington.

The property is approached off the village road through stone gate pillars leading onto a gravelled driveway flanked by fir trees and a area of lawn. This opens out onto a gravelled parking/turning area at the front of the house with space for a number of cars. The main gardens lie at the rear and on one side. There is a stone paved terrace with access into the kitchen making it ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining and a paved path leading around the house. Access leads onto a level expanse of lawn interspersed with mixed trees. This lawn forms an L-shape around the house with an enclosed area for compost. The garden is well fenced and hedged and borders farmland on the south and north west sides. The National Trust owned Burrow Mump lies on the north west side and is a prominent local landmark. Lying east of the main terrace there is a further terrace with the oil tank located behind the garage. Within this area there is an aluminum framed greenhouse and an adjacent timber pergola with trellis fencing and a number of climbers including wisteria and roses. A further paved area gives access to the kitchen garden with six borders bisected by lawned paths and includes a mature bay tree.
