Fantastic gastro pub

We are so lucky to have a fantastic gastro pub on our doorstep for all guests at Bashford Lodge to walk to. Open 7 days a week, for lunch and evening meals. Booking essential at the weekend.

Nearest beach

Kilve Beach (7 ½ miles)

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.

Nearest walk

Wills Neck Walk (2 ½ miles)

Park in the village and take the track up alongside the Rising Sun pub (good for a pre or after walk meal and the food is excellent). It's pretty steep and rocky in places so you'll need walking boots or sturdy shoes. Once ontop of the hill turn left and follow the path through ancient woodland until you reach the wide open moorland area up to Wills Neck trig point. This is the highest point of the Quantocks with stunning panoramic views across the Bristol Channel and South Wales to the north, Glastonbury, Wells and Somerset Levels to the east and the Blackdown and Brendon Hills to the south and west. If you are lucky you will see the herd of wild ponies who live on the Quantocks and are fairly tame. Footpaths stretch for miles in all directions and you can either explore the area or return back the way you came.

Nearest town

Nether Stowey (3 ¼ miles)

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.
