Nearest pub

The Manor Arms (¼ mile)

Traditional village pub serving good honest grub and an a la carte restaurant menu. With traditional opening times, it also has special menus for special occasions and is renowned for its choice of local brews.

Nearest beach

Seatown Beach (12 miles)

A privately-owned beach, Seatown Beach sits to the east of Golden Cap. Backed by soaring cliffs, the beach is a popular spot for fossil hunters looking to find prizes hidden within the shingle. With a steep shelf and no lifeguards on duty, swimming is not advised, however the beach offers a lovely spot to sit and watch the waves rumble and roll along the shore.

A favourite fossil hunting spot. Apparently there are beds of fossilised brittle starfish nearby as well as beds of belemnites. There's a free car park by the beach and you can walk up Golden Cap from here too, Dorset's highest spot, where the views are amazing.

Nearest walk

Parrett River Trail (2 ¾ miles)

There are six different sections to this walk, which extend from coast to coast. The walk runs along the river,where you can take in the stunning scenery of the Somerset Levels and witness the abundance of wildlife!

Beautiful walk along the river, taking in some stunning countryside. Beware of the field of bullocks one needs to cross through!

Nearest town

Crewkerne (2 miles)

A classic market town with elegant Georgian architecture, a 15th Century church and narrow streets of snug cottages.

Also nearby

Montacute House (4 ¾ miles)

Marvellous Montacute

Shame.

A lovely house and location . It was a pity it was spoilt by a very heavy handed and hard sell approach in the ticket office to join the N.T. I had to be very persistent to get into the house and gardens without joining up .
Once we had managed to get in we had another issue with an officious lady in the long room who basically told us off for taking the wrong staircase up . It turned out that a rope had not been put in place . How were we to know! Other staff members tried to make up for this and were excellent but the impression overall was poor.

Very interesting

Another West Country gem to consider when in the Somerset or Dorset areas. Although the house was endowed to NT as an empty shell much work has been done by introducing surplus items from other properties and there is a current fascinating exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery which is a must.

The White Horse (¾ mile)

Located in the centre of this lovely village, you will find a varied menu inspired by French and British classics, great quality food and local cask ales.

Lovely walk to a lovely local Pub

Walked from the front door of the Pump House to The White Horse on a Saturday lunchtime. We had not booked and were very lucky to be seated as they were indeed full, therefore booking is advised.
We had a delicious lunch sat by the open fire, and the two staff were attentive and friendly despite being full. The food was good quality, plentiful, and I would certainly recommend it.

North Perrott Farm Shop and Garden Centre (250 yards)

The farm shop sells a range of meat, dairy, cereal, fruit and veg and all produce is sourced as locally as possible with many items being organic. To complement the shop you will find a seasonal fruit farm, garden centre and coffee shop.

A lovely shop and cafe

We have often stayed in North Perrott and found that the Farm Shop adds greatly to our holiday. It's a good and friendly place to pick up food and other essentials without having to drive, also to have lunch if you fancy a laid-back day in village with a nice walk to the shop. Also a good place for tea and a cake before checking into our rented cottage.

Royal Oak (4 ½ miles)

A traditional village pub with warming real fires in winter and a beer garden for the summer months. Here you'll find a varied menu, excellently cooked and beautifully presented. There's a good wine choice and service is friendly and efficient. You'll also find a skittle alley for family entertainment. The pub has limited opening times so you may wish to check with them before planning a visit. Bookings are advisable particularly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The White Lion Carvery (2 miles)

A traditional carvery that has become something of a Somerset institution.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Mrs Scammell July 2009

One of our favourites and we've been going there for over 25 years. Its a real, old-fashioned style of carvery, with an interesting selection of help-yourself starters and has roast pork, lamb and beef which the chef will carve to your specification. You can go back for more as often as you like, but the first serving is very generous! The sweet trolley is prepared each day by Maureen, the owner, who has been running the Carvery for over 30 years. Its a serious must for sweet-tooths!
