The West Country / Somerset region
Somerset: is dairy cows in lush water-meadows, huge rolling cornfields, immense views, dark chocolate ploughed fields, luxuriant cottage gardens, orchards and the hedgerows alive with songbirds. To the north, the limestone Mendip Hills, splendid for walking, containing caves and Cheddar Gorge; and beautiful Bath with its natural hot springs, a city enjoyed by Jane Austen, steeped in Roman and Georgian history and still very culturally alive - a World Heritage Site. In Somerset's middle, the flatness of Sedgemoor (where Monmouth enticed the West Country's farmers to be slaughtered for him) with cattle at sunset as in a classical painting, villages on low hills. Nearby are Glastonbury with its tor and legends (and festival) and Wells with its tremendous cathedral. To the south is the Hamstone country - beautiful rolling farmland where almost every cottage is of golden stone, and every few miles are magnificent houses/gardens open to the public; at Yeovilton, the excellent Fleet Air Arm Museum (Concorde). In the Vale of Taunton, between Exmoor, the Quantocks and the Blackdown Hills, is some of the richest farmland in England, wonderfully unspoilt and peaceful.
And to the north-west, the 40 square miles of the beautiful Quantock Hills stretching from Taunton (county town) to the Bristol Channel sea and big sandcastling beaches. Wooded, heather-topped, home to red deer and loved by Wordsworth and Coleridge. Superb walks/rides, tremendous views, deep romantic valleys, pretty villages. Along the Quantocks' western foot chugs the steam railway from Bishop's Lydeard to Minehead. Few beautiful-country areas are so rich in interesting and splendid man-made things to see.
The Wedmore area
Wedmore: pretty village (church, pubs, art gallery, smart boutiques and shops) known as the 'Chelsea of Somerset'. Golf, 1 mile. Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole, 5-6 miles. Bath, 25 miles.
