Kilver Court is 30 minutes from Bath and Bristol and only 2.5 hours from London by car. We are located on the main A37 on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet (at the foot of the rolling Mendip hills) in the heart of Somerset, opposite the cider factory.

Look out for the brown 'Kilver Court Garden' signs as you head into Shepton Mallet. Local train links are frequent and our nearest mainline station is Castle Cary (for local train links visit Kilver Court is only 10 minutes away from Castle Cary station by car and takes approx 35 mins by bus. There is a bus that runs from Castle Cary Station to Kilver Street (Charlton Inn bus stop).


Due to the nature of the site, disabled access is limited. Please phone our Duty Manager (07841871473) before you visit us and we can help you plan your day and the best route for exploring Kilver Court and accessing the areas you wish. Due to the historical nature of the gardens they have limited wheelchair access.


Regrettably dogs are not permitted in our stores or gardens, except guide dogs. Dogs are permitted on our site and in the Parlour area of our Harlequin Cafe.
