Tintinhull is a popular and attractive conservation village lying in a rural part of South Somerset, adjacent to the ancient Fosse Way now partly followed by the A303.
The village is approximately four miles northwest of Yeovil and three miles southwest of the one-time Roman town of Ilchester. In addition to modern roadways, ancient pathways connect Tintinhull with the Fosse Way, Ilchester and with Montacute two miles to the south. Tintinhull itself is sited on a low promontory set slightly inland from the Somerset Levels, between the River Yeo and Bearley Brook to the northwest and Wellhams Brook a tributary of the River Parrett, to the south. Roads, lanes and tracks radiate from the centre of the village and place it in a clear relationship with the cultivated higher land and the lower grazing areas. The village lies close to Ham Hill, the largest hill fort in Britain, and approximately half way between Yeovil and Martock
