Ashcombe Court sits within a quiet enclave close to the town centre, in the grounds of an attractive Regency building, Summerlands House, which has been transformed into apartments. The main entrance is through an archway in a finely-proportioned building of Ham stone, with stone pilasters surmounted by a cupola. Mellow honey-coloured stone cottages and apartments front onto two gently-sloping lawned courtyards, with Summerlands House at the top approached by an elegant flight of steps.
Ilminster is a busy market town and the streets still follow the medieval pattern with the market square and colonnaded market house at its centre. It has a good range of shops, supermarkets, banks, pubs and restaurants. Cultural opportunities also abound, with concerts, plays and events at the arts centre and theatre, and a twice-daily bus offers an easy trip to London. The splendid perpendicular Minster Church is the glory of the town and one of the most magnificent in the country. Taunton, the county town of Somerset with its history stretching back to Saxon times, is just 13 miles from the estate, and a drive of less than 15 minutes brings you to the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
