Out and About

Situated in the picturesque village of Over Stratton in rural South Somerset, we are surrounded by farmland and orchards. The nearest shops are in the village of South Petherton, just over a mile away, with a post office, the Co-op and boutique shopping. For more adventurous shopping, Yeovil is 10 miles and Taunton 16 miles. Or you could try the famous Clarks Village  of outlet shops at Street.

We are well placed as a base for visits to beautiful Bath or Exeter, even Exmoor, but why not sample the pure delights closer to home. Ham Hill country park is 3 miles down the road where you can walk around the ancient hill fort and see the view across the Somerset Levels, refresh yourself after your exertions at the Prince of Wales pub. Somerset is famous for cider, and there is none better than Burrow Hill Cider and their renowned distilled Cider Brandy.

The village of Over Stratton has it's very own Forge where blacksmith Alex Pole runs courses for beginners and the more advanced.

Somerset is not only known for its apples and cider; we are also rich in beautiful churches and National Trust properties, of which there are some real gems just a few miles from us - Montacute House, Barrington Court, Lytes Cary and Stourhead - and some private houses and gardens well worth a visit also, for instance Forde Abbey , Hestercombe & Cothay Manor

Good family days out can be spent at the Cheddar Caves and Gorge or the spooky Wookey Hole Caves on the Mendips. Also, less than an hour's drive are Longleat, Abbotsbury, Glastonbury and Wells. On a wet day, try the Haynes Motor Museum or the Fleet Air Arm Museum at RNAS Yeovilton. 

If it's the seaside you want, the Jurassic Coast with lovely Lyme Regis or West Bay the home of the TV series Broadchurch is just 30 - 40 minutes to the south.
