Nearest pub

The Holywell Inn (1 ½ miles)

A traditional cosy Somerset pub in the heart of the countryside close to Wellington. Call in for traditional food, real ales and a warm welcome.

Nearest beach

Kilve Beach (15 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 (3 ½ 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

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.

Stunning

One of the best national trust properties we've ever been to, something for all ages. The gardens are fantastic and offer both formal and woodland styles. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful gardens!

The gardens are the jewel of this property, with many different areas; woodland, formal garden, meadow, parkland and a stunning restored kitchen garden which provides produce for the lovely stables restaurant. Highly recommended and really easy access from the M5.

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

Rock Inn (3 ¼ miles)

Country chic dining on the southern fringes of Exmoor, with locally-sourced meats and cheeses, including Exmoor venison pie. There's a proper bar too, with darts and pool room.
