Nearest pub

The Beambridge Inn (¾ mile)

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this pub/restaurant has a large outdoor seating area for al fresco dining and plenty of indoor space. Food is freshly cooked to order and a takeaway service is available.

Nearest beach

Kilve Beach (16 miles)

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.

Amazing

Most unusual beach in U.K we have visited. Fabulous views , need sturdy footwear for walking on the beach itself.

Nearest walk

Milverton Circular Walk (3 ½ miles)

Park in the village car park and follow the directions from the Web site. The walk is four and a half miles following lanes and fields with lovely views of surrounding countryside. Stop off at the Globe Inn on your return for a well deserved pint!

Nearest town

Wellington (2 ¼ miles)

Close to the Blackdown Hills, Wellington is a small Somerset market town where good food is a bit of an obsession. Supermarkets seem to have lost the battle here and instead local produce, sold in traditional outlets like the fishmonger’s and butcher’s, is to be found everywhere. The monthly farmer’s market is heaven for foodies; fantastic local cheeses, meat from nearby farms and real cider give you a great taste of Somerset. You can diet when you get home…

Also nearby

The Wellesley Cinema (1 ¾ miles)

A traditional old style cinema in Art Deco style with seating in the stalls and circle. A kiosk in the foyer offers a wide selection of confectionery, popcorn, ice cream and drinks with licenced bar service provided at most screenings. Take a look their Web site for film details.

Lovely old fashioned theatre/cinema. Great value for money compared to the modern Odeon in Taunton.

The New Inn (5 ¼ miles)

This 18th century former coaching house is well situated between the Quantocks and Exmoor National Park. If you are out and about for day pop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

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!

Free parking and walk for dog

We couldn't go in as we had the dog with us, but the car park was free and there's a nice woodland walk off the car park where dogs can walk off the lead. Nice setting and surrounding countryside.
