Amazing

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

Nearest walk

Nether Stowey, Friarn & Over Stowey Walk (1 ¾ miles)

A four and a half mile countryside walk taking in quaint Somerset villages on the way. Start from The Cross in Nether Stowey and follow the directions on the Web site.

Nearest town

Nether Stowey (1 ¾ 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.

The Ancient Mariner pub

Lovely for Sunday lunch although menu was limited to mainly roasts

Also nearby

The Rising Sun Inn (2 ¾ miles)

'Great food in the heart of the Quantocks'. A traditional inn with a varied, locally sourced menu and real ales - the perfect Somerset stop-off. The interior is cosy and welcoming, yet spacious and well-renovated, with spotlights highlighting the traditional features.
