Nearest pub

Built in 1835, this quaint village pub offers a warm welcome and hot plate. Serving locally-supplied produce and real ales from nearby breweries, Ashill Inn works closely with local businesses and is popular with both locals and visitors. The pub is family-friendly and wheelchair accessible.

Nearest beach

This is a wide sandy and shingle beach with good access and parking nearby. Jacobs Ladder leads down to the beach from Connaught Gardens, a lovely place to take in the view. A great family beach, you'll find lots of facilities and cafes nearby. Dogs are allowed year round at the easterly end of the beach.

Nearest walk

A privately owned (but open to the public) woodland with lots of footpaths to explore. Let us know if you find the ruined tower!

Nearest town

Radiating out for over 140 miles from where we've marked as a centrepoint, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty straddles the Devon and Somerset border. The Blackdown Hills paint a picture of the quintessential image of rural England. Rolling hills and deep valleys, sparsely populated except for the grazing cattle, it is the perfect destination for a classic countryside retreat. Criss-crossed with footpaths and country lanes linking the tiny hamlets and villages together, this is idyllic walking country.

Great Food - reasonably priced

We visited this pub twice during our stay at Snaffles Lodge. Both times we ate from the new summer menu. All the food was very good and well presented. We had for starters the scallops, the octopus and the duck - all yummy. And mains we went for the steak, the veggie noodles, the chicken Caesar salad , the Parmesan chicken and not forgetting the fish and chips. All were just perfect, if this is a temporary menu whist they attract new owners, then I can’t wait to go back and try the full one later. Highly recommended

A family run pub and restaurant which offers local ales and ciders to compliment the locally sourced menu.

Very nice local pub to where we were staying. Excellent food and very pleasant staff
Information to Phone ahead and book which we did was a busy night as it’s very popular, but the service was quite slow. That was the only downside. Good quality food, just slow service.

Great dog-friendly pub

A lovely pub, with friendly staff and excellent food. Generous portions. Very dog friendly. Lots of outside seating, in the warmer months. Might be best to pre-book, as can get busy.

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.

Interesting house and gardens, even kept the kids going for two hours.

If you're an aviation fanatic, this modern coffee bar and restaurant suitated on the edge of Dunkeswell Airfield, will be right up your street! It's also popular with families as it offers a warm welcome and extensive menu with something to suit everyone. Check out their live music events and themed nights if you fancy something different.

Very impressive

As my partner is a pilot it was inevitable we would need to visit the airfield.... usually these places are quite basic and food is obligatory greasy spoon type fare....but not here in Dunkeswell! Very impressed and very helpful staff. Food great and very reasonably priced too and dogs are welcome. The location of the outdoor seating also means you get an excellent view of aircraft both landing, taking off and parking up....

Take a tour of this 200-year-old spinning mill and see yarn being produced on spinning frames and power looms. There is also a restaurant, picnic areas and a shop selling goods manufactured at the mill.

We visited this on a 'steam-up' day which I recommend. It would be interesting at any time as there will be few Victorian-era factories with so much of the original machinery still in place. However seeing and hearing all the machines clacking away, feeling the heat of the massive boiler and seeing (and smelling) the massive steam engines moving overhead really brings the tough lives of Victorian factory workers into close relief. Steam engine buffs will be in heaven but plenty for history enthusiasts. What wasn't explained was why anyone would choose to wear puttees instead of socks... Be aware that it does get really busy on steam up days so get there early.
