From our home in the wonderful historic village of Crowcombe, we offer all the detail you need for the perfect trip. In the west is the charming market town of Barnstaple.

North we visit the delightful cathedral city of Wells and spectacular Wookey Hole.

Along the way, the Guide to Somerset will cover dozens of walks and trails, with something fascinating to discover at every turn. You can immerse yourself in Somerset’s diverse history, or just relax, take in the beauty, and breathe in the purest, freshest air in the country.
