Although we usually keep office hours Monday to Friday, the yard team occasionally works away from site or may be undergoing staff training; this is why we ask you to contact us before you visit.

SAT NAV & Directions

Occasionally SAT NAVS are sending people into Wells, which is 5 minutes away from our actual location. If you need assistance with directions when lost please call our office for directions.

Please note that some online maps and SAT NAV devices list Wells Road Emborough as Bath Road causing some confusion and sending people to Bath by mistake.

We suggest that you double check our actual location before setting out to visit us.

We are located on the B3139, on the Mendip Hills about 1.5 miles from the A37, on the left as you head towards Wells in Somerset

Distance: we are above the historic city of Wells in Somerset which is a 10 minute drive away. Bath and Bristol are also only a short distance from our yard, 16 miles drive by car. Bruton is also accessible by a short journey of 12 miles as are Frome and Glastonbury, London 2 1/2 hours.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful country side, pretty villages and historic areas all worth a visit as Somerset has so much to offer. Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole are both within a very short drive and are both sites of biological and geological interest.

Our favourite places to shop and have coffee can be found within ten minutes, our area also provides pleasant designer retail experiences at Kilver Court Designer Village with Mulberry, again only a short drive of 12 minutes from our sawmill. A 1/2 hour journey will take you to the designer outlet shopping complex at Clarks Village in Street.
