Situation and amenities

The sought-after village of North Cadbury is a thriving village set within typically attractive South Somerset rural countryside. It has a village store, primary school, public house and village hall. The village is situated just circa 3 miles to the south of the attractive market town of Castle Cary with its many independent businesses, shops, boutiques and galleries, with amenities such as a health centre, dental practice, library, bank, post office, deli, grocery stores, butcher, newsagent, chemist, pubs, restaurants and a weekly market. Castle Cary also boasts a mainline railway station with connections to London Paddington to the east and Taunton and Exeter to the west. The village is also within close proximity to many well regarded senior schools at Bruton and Sherborne to the south and has the Hazelgrove Prep School just to the west at Sparkford. The village has fantastic transport links with the A303 close by and two mainline (Paddington & Waterloo) railway lines within easy reach, with Yeovil just circa 10 miles to the south west.


There is no mains gas in the area but we are informed that other mains services are nearby including Wessex Internet for fibre broadband. A plan from Wessex Water showing the mains water and sewer positions is included in the planning and technical pack available from the agents. However, all interested parties should make and rely upon their own enquiries of the relevant services providers with regards to the proposed development.


South Somerset District Council granted detailed planning permission (Ref.16/02410/ful) for the erection of 3 dwellings with associated parking and landscaping as well as the demolition of existing barns at North Town Farm, Higher North Town Lane, North Cadbury, BA22 7BX on 6th September 2016. A subsequent Section 73 application (Ref.17/00651/S73) to vary the approved plans to 3 detached dwellings was approved on 30th March 2017. Pre-commencement conditions were discharged in December 2018 (Ref.18/03618/DOC) and confirmation was received in April 2019 from South Somerset following a site visit from Dave Kenyon, that works have materially commenced within the requisite period and this constitutes a commencement of the planning permission.

Please note: Full working drawings and engineers calculations for the 3 houses have also been produced but were not submitted to the Council, and these may be available by negotiation.

A further outline planning application (Ref.19/02235/out) was submitted in August 2019 for the erection of 5 dwellings (with all matters reserved) on the site and this was approved by the Council on 15th January 2020. A subsequent reserved matters planning application (Ref.22/03398/rem) was validated by South Somerset District Council on 6th December 2022 and is pending a decision.
