The West Country region

Somerset is rightly known as the Jewell of the Southwest

Taunton

Hillcommon has a pub which serves good food and is within walking distance of your holiday home: nearby Oake has a post office and community run shop. Wiveliscombe has an excellent butcher with complementary delicatessen, chemist and small supermarkets (which are open into the evening). Taunton has a full range of supermarkets and a variety of smaller shops as well as a good representation of the national chain stores.

This is an farming area, but is very well served with footpaths which can provide many different walks, particularly for dog owners. We are all asked to respect the countryside at all times, with particular regard to local farmers and their livestock and crops. You are most welcome to use our grounds to exercise your pets but please keep dogs on a lead when we have our sheep grazing nearby.

Our visitors have found this a good base for exploring both the north and south coasts, with easy access to the Quantock Hills and Exmore. Garden enthusiasts can visit Hestercombe House as well as National Trust properties at Knights Hayes, Killerton and East Lambrook, and RHS Rosemoor in north Devon.

For those researching their family roots, Somerset Heritage Centre is 10 minutes drive.
