Welcome to Headford Farm
The Quantock Hills were the first of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walks and trails are plentiful as are stunning views.
This is another view of the little sitting-out patio at the back of the cottage. Your log store is here too.
Venture into the calm, green spaces of the Somerset Levels.  Walk for miles along the paths, see Glastonbury in the distance and listen to the sound of birdsong.
Have a day out along the North Somerset coast.  Visit Minehead for Steam Trains and traditional seaside fare, or maybe take a trip to the picturesque Dunster Castle, perched high up on a hillside.
This is the Headford Reservoir - a lovely walk along country lanes from the cottage.
You are close to the magnificent moorland of the Quantock Hills and Exmoor - so keep looking for these magnificent Red Deer, whilst you're walking the beautiful hills.
This is the beach at Kilve, an extraordinary part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Explore the rocks for fossils, or follow the cliff path.
The Quantock Hills are a stunning 9.5 thousand acre Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with wonderful trails, open space and fabulous views!

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.

Amazing

Most unusual beach in U.K we have visited. Fabulous views , need sturdy footwear for walking on the beach itself.

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.

Left disappointed 😗

We were really looking forward to our evening meal at this pretty inn but unfortunately we were left disappointed.
It started well when we arrived , shown to our tables , drinks order taken and menu given for us to choose.
We were the only ones in inn at this point so we were surprised that it took over 20 minutes for them to take our order even though we said we were ready to order!
Once our order was taken (again still only the ones in there) it took over another 30 minutes for a burger and a curry to arrive!
When it did we weren’t asked if we needed any condiments or sauces and had to attract one of the staff to get our extras.
Other people arrived and it was obvious how much quicker they were to get served, even when we were eating (food was ok) no one asked if everything was ok , but again noticed how only certain staff did this.
On leaving we overheard that the chef was late in and that was probably the reason for the delay in taking our order. It would just have been polite to inform us of this fact.
So this is our reason for being left disappointed and hence the 2 star rating.

Fyne Court (1 ¾ miles)

Take a walk in the pleasure grounds of pioneering 19th Century electrician Andrew Crosse, which are now a nature reserve. Or plan your outings in the lovely Quantocks countryside at the visitor centre here.
