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.
With just a sprinkling of pretty cottages, a village church and a children's play area, Penselwood is a charming hamlet, surrounded by lush farmland and unspoiled countryside. Set on the border between Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, this charming little settlement is reached by winding country lanes from the nearby village of Bourton. Far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the wonderful hamlet of Penselwood is the perfect place to relax in peaceful countryside. Between great walking, the magnificent house and gardens at Stourhead, historic Shaftesbury and Longleat House with its Safari Park, visitors will be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities.
