The West Country region

Somerset offers 3 areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Quantock, Mendip and Blackdown Hills. Lose yourself in the glory of nature, take a ride on a steam train, visit a traditional farmers' market or explore your mystical side at Glastonbury.

Shepton Mallet

The village of Batcombe nestles in the valley of the River Alham in East Somerset, on the edge of the Mendip Hills and only 3.5 miles from the town of Bruton. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is bursting with rural walks, picturesque villages and country pubs. Within a short drive are the superb house and gardens at Stourhead, as well as magnificent Longleat House and Safari Park. Enjoy a trip to mystical Glastonbury, The Royal Bath & West Showground, or Clarks Village shopping centre at Street, all within an easy drive. A little further afield, Wells and Salisbury Cathedrals, Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge and even the Dorset and Somerset coasts are all easily accessible, making this an enjoyable holiday destination at any time of the year.
