Nearest pub

The Halfway House (3 miles)

The Halfway House has been awarded CAMRA Somerset pub of the year on many occasions and bagged the Daily Telegraph Perfect Pub award in 2006. Renowned for a great selection of food in the evenings, a good selection of ales and even rough cider, including Heck's Traditional Somerset Farmhouse Cider from Street.

Nearest beach

Burnham-on-Sea Beach (14 miles)

Burnham-on-Sea's beaches are comprised of everything you could need for a quintessential day by the sea, including ice cream galore, donkey rides, cafes and, most importantly, oodles of golden sand. Being Europe's second longest stretch of sand, the beaches offer lots of space to play and explore. For a beach in the heart of the action, visit Burnham Main Beach, also home to Britain's shortest pier.

Nearest walk

Langport Visitor Centre (3 ¼ miles)

Drop by for lots of local information including countryside walks, river walks and much more. Check opening times before you visit as it's run by volunteers and not open every day.

Nearest town

Somerton (4 ¾ miles)

Somerton perfectly demonstrates that change is not always for the better. This Somerset town is charm itself, with a pristine market place bordered by an elegant town hall, pretty alms houses and an historic court house. If you’re looking for modern facilities like Starbucks, multistorey car parks and chain stores, you’ll be disappointed; if bucolic beauty is more your scene, you’ll be delighted.

Also nearby

Glastonbury Tor (7 miles)

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.

Breathtaking (!)

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!

The Bishop's Palace and Gardens (12 miles)

A fantastic 13th Century building with 14 acres of exquisite, tranquil gardens.

A great place to visit

A beautiful garden to walk around with great views of the cathedral.
Wells is a lovely small city to spend the day in.

Make sure you go to the cathedral and Vicars Close as well.

Glastonbury Abbey (6 ¼ miles)

A great day out for all the family with romantic ruins to explore, thirty six acres of parkland, an outdoor cafe, excellent gift shop and modern visitor centre. Costumed guides tell historic tales and you can even visit the legendary burial place of King Arthur. Check their Web site for opening times and further details.

Montacute House (11 miles)

An exceptional Elizabethan house filled with treasures, including 17th Century textile samplers and Elizabethan art. This house featured in the 1995 film ‘Sense and Sensibility’.

Shame.

A lovely house and location . It was a pity it was spoilt by a very heavy handed and hard sell approach in the ticket office to join the N.T. I had to be very persistent to get into the house and gardens without joining up .
Once we had managed to get in we had another issue with an officious lady in the long room who basically told us off for taking the wrong staircase up . It turned out that a rope had not been put in place . How were we to know! Other staff members tried to make up for this and were excellent but the impression overall was poor.

Very interesting

Another West Country gem to consider when in the Somerset or Dorset areas. Although the house was endowed to NT as an empty shell much work has been done by introducing surplus items from other properties and there is a current fascinating exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery which is a must.

Stembridge Tower Mill (¾ mile)

Its well worth a visit to the last remaining thatched windmill in England and free if you are a National Trust member! Please check their Web site for dates when the interior is open.
