Kilve Beach sits halfway between Minehead and Bridgwater. A rolling grassy expanse meeting a rocky beach peppered with rock pools, Kilve is picnic paradise. A Site of Special Scientific Interest, the beach is also home to lots of fossils, including ammonites and reptile remains. Just remember, you are not allowed to dig them directly out of the cliffs though.
Most unusual beach in U.K we have visited. Fabulous views , need sturdy footwear for walking on the beach itself.
Legend goes John Walford murdered his wife and put her in a ditch here. Whether this is true or not is open for debate; the fact is this a lovely, scenic hill top walk of about 3 miles. Park in the car park and follow the path along side Crowcombe Road. After about 15 minutes turn right at the rough car park and cross the road leading up hill until the path splits. Take a left to the trig point, then right for 50 yards across a track. This path will lead you back in the direction of the car park over an open grassy area. This is a moderate walk, failry level with some stoney ground.
On the fringes of the Quantock Hills, Nether Stowey is a village where rural community spirit is alive and well – perhaps the fact that three busy pubs still thrive here is testament to this. The most famous former resident of Nether Stowey is the legendary poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge; his passion for walking the hills and valleys of this beautiful countryside is commemorated in the Coleridge Way, a magnificent 36 mile trail that crosses the Quantocks on its way to Exmoor.
