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.
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.
Home cooked food and cakes served in a lovely setting overlooking the Quantocks. Panoramic view, outdoor sun deck, ample parking and dog friendly, a great please to stop when out and about in the area.

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