A welcoming historic old coaching Inn set in the heart of the village. Dogs are welcome and there's a large garden with seating for warmer weather.
Kilve Beach sits halfway between Minehead and Bridgwater. A rolling grassy expanse meeting a rocky beach peppered with rock pools, Kilve is picnic paradise. A Site of Special Scientific Interest, the beach is also home to lots of fossils, including ammonites and reptile remains. Just remember, you are not allowed to dig them directly out of the cliffs though.
Most unusual beach in U.K we have visited. Fabulous views , need sturdy footwear for walking on the beach itself.
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.
The Ancient Mariner pub
Lovely for Sunday lunch although menu was limited to mainly roasts
Situated in the fabulous Quantock Hills, famous for its great walks and cycling, this is a great place to visit for real ales and good food. Children and dogs are very welcome and there's even a special dog menu.
'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.
