Biking, kayaking, walking and horse riding

Biking, walking and horse riding are all possible among the high and mighty hills of West Somerset. Try the high or low ropes at Vivary Adventure Centre, sup the cider at Sheppy’s Cider Farm, or catch some cricket at Taunton.

Big Days Out

Trek the high and mighty hills of the Quantocks by bike, horse or Shanks’ pony. Stroll the wild open moorland, which to the North gives way to long views of the Welsh coastline. Or see it all from even higher in an Aerosaurus balloon. For peace and tranquility, The Oake Manor Golf Club provides PGA professional tuition and an undulating 18-hole course.

The wild green yonder figures highly here, with nature reserves at Langford Nature Reserve and Ash Common and more treks than you can shake a walker’s stick at. There are hunks of history too at the Wellington Monument, Cothay Manor and The Somerset Museum. Wander through Hestercombe Gardens, with its Lutyens and Jekyll landscaped and formal gardens, visit the art gallery then refresh with a delectable afternoon tea.

Stroll into the heart of the village for a pint of Exmoor at gastro pub The Globe and catch a live music session at Milverton Music Club. In nearby Wivlescombe, take a brewery tour at Cotleigh before darkness descends and you wind your way to The Bear Inn, or The White Hart for a hearty ale. Or take yourself off to Taunton for dining at The Castle Hotel, Augustus and The Willow Tree.
