Site Description

Welcome to Sparkford Green. A collection of seven serviced plots are available to purchase with a detailed planning permission to build either a detached, semi-detached or bungalow in the village of Sparkford, only a few miles north of Yeovil.


The local area

The development sits in newly landscaped green space nestled behind the Sparkford Inn. The land is bordered by a mature coniferous tree line giving the feel of an exclusive, private, almost North American feel to the development. The village of Sparkford sits alongside the old London to Exeter Road (A303). Due to the trading history between the capital and the coast, Sparkford has been a resting place for many a weary traveler over the years. The Sparkford Inn is one of the longest running continuous inns in the country. It was mentione dint he doomsday book under “Spercheford” and has been operational since the mid 14th century.

South Somerset’s largest settlement is the market town of Yeovil which can be found only six miles to the south of Sparkford Green, steeped in history dating back as far as medieval times, the small streets, packed with old buildings have a foray of bustling independent shops, cafes, pubs and art galleries.

Further to the North is the roman City of Bath. Heavily detailed with roman architecture you can relate to the Emperor of Rome referring to it as “The Capital of the North”. Bath is ideal for spending weekends away or summer evenings in its fabulous selection of restaurants and outdoor seated bars, but if you prefer a more relaxed experience, bathe in the warm waters of the city before viewing the ancient roman baths.

Education provision is aplenty near Sparkford, the local primary school can be found 1 mile south of Sparkford Green on W Camel Road. The Countess Gytha Primary school has an offsted report of Good and also hosts a nursery school available from aged 3. If you are looking for private education Hazlegrove Prep school can be found 400 yards along High Street from the development which offers a wide range of co-curricular opportunities for children aged 2-13. Secondary education can be sought in various locations close to the site and Universities including the highly acclaimed University of Bristol is less than 1 hour from home.
