The rural and historical village of Christon with medieval origins is nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, a conservation area and designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The close-knit community boasting a 12th century Parish Church is just a short distance from the larger neighbouring village of Loxton and approximately 3 miles from both Winscombe and Axbridge which offer a wide range of amenities including: Doctor, dental and veterinary practices, a range of retail outlets, public houses/restaurants and professional practices. For those with a keen interest in the outdoors there are a range of activities available including: Horse riding, walking and mountain biking on the Mendip Hills and surrounding countryside, sailing and fishing on the Chew Valley Lakes and Cheddar reservoir and there are a number of excellent golf courses within the district. A particular draw to the area is the excellent range of schools on offer, these include: Weare Academy First School, Axbridge Church of England First School and Winscombe Primary. Secondary education is available at The Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar and Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre in Churchill. Private schooling is available at Sidcot near Winscombe and The Cathedral School in Wells. For those travelling further afield access to the A38 and M5 Motorway network are within easy reach providing access to Bristol City Centre and beyond. There are mainline railway connections at Worle, Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Backwell providing direct links to Bristol Temple Mead, London Paddington and other major towns and cities. Bristol international airport is within a 30-minute drive.


From Bristol heading South West on the A38 proceed through the village of Langford. At the traffic lights in Churchill turn right onto Dinghurst Road signposted to Banwell and Weston-super-Mare. Follow the road for approximately 2.5 miles passing through the village of Sandford. At the 'T' Junction in Banwell turn left onto Castle Hill. Proceed to the top of the hill and with Banwell Castle ahead of you, bear right onto The Rhodyate. Proceed down the hill and follow the road through a sharp right hand bend. Continue on this road for approximately 2 miles that in turn leads onto the Christon Road and then the Banwell Road. Proceed into the village of Christon passing Flagstaff Road with the Church of St Mary on the corner and the property can be found a bit further on on the right before the turning to Weston Lane.
