The village has approximately 150 dwellings including 29 residential park homes. The population in 2014 was 332. The village follows the B3165 along a spur from Martock to Somerton. It is on a geological junction between two types of stone so many of the houses are of grey blue lias stone while others are of golden hamstone.
