Muddy Paws is situated in the Hamlet of Curload at the bottom of Curload Hill which is on the edge of the Somerset Levels - an area famous for its Willow beds and basket making and is designated as an environmentally sensitive area. Close by are the villages of Stoke St Gregory and North Curry, which between them, provide a range of facilities which include post offices, primary school, health centre and churches. Locally there are a more comprehensive range of amenities available in the County town of Taunton about 10 miles away including excellent state and independent schools, a theatre, County Cricket Ground and a railway station with frequent services to London Paddington. The M5 is extremely accessible, with Junction 25 being only 7.5 miles from the property. Excellent walking commune to and along the drones of the River Tone.

There is space for range cooker with an extractor hood over and an opening through to the dining room.
