The earliest written record of Crewkerne is in the 899 will of Alfred the Great who left it to his youngest son Æthelweard. After the Norman conquest it was held by William the Conqueror and in the Domesday Survey of 1086 was described as a royal manor.

The town grew up in the late mediaeval period around the textile industry, its wealth preserved in the fifteenth century Church of St Bartholomew. During the 18th and 19th centuries the main industry was cloth making, including webbing, and sails for the Royal Navy.

Bincombe Beeches Local Nature Reserve is a special part of the town and there are many boutique attractions for gift shopping.

The train station takes you to Waterloo, making it a popular location.

Client Testimonials

They establish a good relationship with their tenants, provide quick and professional responses and try to help you as much as possible. I have always been able to rely on their friendly approach.

Prior to the move-out inspection, they came round to the property to provide feedback on the cleanliness, to help us ensure that we received our full deposit back - this gave us massive peace of mind and I wish all agents were as keen as Orchard Estates were to provide us with this service.

If I ever moved back into the area, I would certainly go back to them in the first instance.

By far the best estate agents I’ve used so far (I’ve rented

Orchards acted for me in the sale of my property in Crewkerne. Their whole service from beginning to end was flawless. Their photos and video tour made the property stand out from the crowd. They always returned my calls and emails promptly and assisted my solicitor in actively progressing the sale. I would highly recommend to use them if you want your sale to go through!

Charles Aslett

Flawless Service

Thanks for helping us on our house search. Charlie showed us around two houses in Stoke-sub-Hamdon and was very personable and professional and provided knowledgeable answers to our (many) questions. We felt confident that we had an understanding of the properties and area based on his answers and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
