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.

What an amazing pub!

We were staying locally so visited the pub on several occasions. Lovely decor, great atmosphere and amazing food. Have to say a special thank you to Lucy for the wonderful (and entertaining) service she gave when we visited for dinner on the evening of my partners 60th birthday. She made our evening!

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.

Hestercombe Gardens (6 miles)

Forty acres of loveliness including streams, temples, woodland and terraces. The garden features Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian influences.

Exceptional.

Quite simply stunning , superb gardens and house . A beautiful location with superb views. The coffee shop is well worth a visit and the restaurant if you have more time .
All the staff were very friendly and gave an excellent impression.
This is exactly the way to manage these houses . Take note National Trust at Montacute . I know which house we shall return to .

Cross Keys (6 ½ miles)

A pretty18th century inn strategically placed on the old turnpike road on the edge of the village. Call in for lunch or dinner with a seasonally changing menu and specials. Children are welcome and ample parking is available.
