This rocky beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and well worth a visit for fossil collectors, especially for ammonite and reptile remains.
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.
Delightful spacious tea rooms, set in lovely gardens and with stunning views of the surrounding Quantock and Blackdown hills. Enjoy cream teas, high tea, coffee and cakes and dogs are very welcome in the gardens. Open until late afternoon.
Fantastic tea room and garden
My wife Mary and I visited the tea rooms during a walk over the Quantock Hills. The setting was superb and the staff very friendly and helpful. Home made scones with clotted cream and jam were scrumptious, and the tea was very welcome by 2 thirsty walkers. I would recommend this tea room to everyone.
A lovely spot for a cream tea, especially in summer when the roses are in bloom!
