Set in an idyllic semi-rural location, Orchard Rise enjoys a delightful mix of rural living with the benefit of the historic town of Chard on the doorstep. Chard is an old market town, set in South Somerset and surrounded by beautiful countryside, close to the Devon and Dorset borders. Set at an altitude of 121 metres Chard is the southernmost and highest town in Somerset!
Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1065, Chard was originally named Cerden and then Cerdre, its history built on the textile industry. Chard is also synonymous with powered flight as in 1848 John Stringfellow first demonstrated that engine-powered flight was possible. A bronze depicting this is located in Fore Street.
