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.

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.
