About the area
The village of Godney lies well away from busy roads in the area between Wells, Glastonbury and Wedmore. Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil are within commuting distance. Castle Cary and Highbridge are the nearest train stations with fast links to London.
Wells, the smallest city in England (population 10, 000), lies in beautiful countryside between the Somerset Levels and the Mendip Hills. There is a central market place (local markets twice a week), many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace, a small but busy local shopping centre and a broad range of societies and activities.
Glastonbury's past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It’s been a religious centre throughout history and further back into the times of legends and the town grew up alongside the Abbey. Today it’s a thriving market town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.
The Saxon village of Wedmore has existed for well over a thousand years and is a delightful and extremely active centre. There are historic buildings including the medieval church next to an old coaching inn, interesting and varied shops, a wide range of clubs and societies,
Godney is within the catchment area of The Blue School in Wells and the Wedmore schools are also close by. There are also excellent private schools in the area including Wells Cathedral School and Millfield.
The village has a very busy community centred on the village hall with many local activities. A proprietor has recently bought the village pub with a reputation for creating good pubs with excellent food and great things are expected!
Immediately available from the village are footpaths bridleways and droves which give access to the beautiful surrounding countryside. It is usual to see swans, herons, deer and other wildlife within or on the fringes of the village. In an issue of Country Living the Somerset Levels were considered one of “Britain’s Best Wild Places”. Over the last couple of decades Godney has attracted a very interesting and varied collection of residents in addition to the local village and farming community. These include artists, architects, industry recognised musicians, lecturers, barristers, business people, historians and genealogists, (Time Team), environmentalists, antique restorers and a few titled individuals. All seem to fit in well to this small community and village which has developed along the banks of the River Sheppey.
