Set In the beautiful village of Batcombe, this 400 year old county pub uses fresh, local and seasonal produce to create a changing menu with both modern and traditional pub classic food. With a spacious bar and lovely dining room, this pub caters for all and is child and dog friendly.
Review by C. Pimiento
Chanced upon a great place near Bruton - The Three Horseshoes Batcombe - oldy wordly. Just a great pub - had a great lunch then went for a walk - Beautiful 5 stars
Boasting England's shortest pier, this forms part of the seven-mile stretch of sand between Burnham-on-Sea and Brean. All that you'd expect from a classic British seaside resort beach, complete with donkey rides and entertainment for the kids in summer, plus all facilities nearby.
*Recommended by a Classic Owner* Park in the hamlet of Spargrove and take a circular walk on footpaths and pretty lanes through the surrounding villages of Westcombe, Honeycliff and into Batcombe. Take the footpath along the pretty river of Alham for your return through Batcombe Bottom. Approximately 4 miles.
A little but pretty market town in the Somerset countryside, full of little, unique shops and ancient market buildings. It's a quiet town, with lots of history to discover in the stone streets, home to one of only four ancient roundhouse lock-ups in the country. Walks abound with spectacular views and The Macmillan Way passing through the town centre.
World famous landscaped gardens with a magnificent lake as centrepiece. Certainly worth a visit to see the classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare, exotic trees. Why not combine a walk around the garden with a visit to the house, restaurant and shop with opening time information available on their Web site.
This is the most beautiful place you can imagine - the walk around the lake, dropping into the various buildings and grottoes, is breathtaking. All I can say is you really must visit.
A wonderful must in Dorset. Great gardens and interesting house. Well worth a visit.
On the first weekend of June, the country's biggest rural festival takes place. And it's not just livestock. See their Web site for this event and other all year round events.
Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.
It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!
Housed within a beautiful Somerset stone building, the pretty exterior is in-keeping with the village surroundings and reflected in the duck pond out front.
Three lakes within the grounds of the campsite are available for fishing and stock Carp, Trench and Rudd up to 20lbs along with a variety of other fish. Fish must be returned swiftly without the use of keep-nets and barbless hooks only are to be used. Day passes are available and you do not need to be staying at the campsite to purchase these.
