Wonderful west country walks

Our farmland extends to Staple Hill, part of the Forestry Commission’s Neroche Castle. Staple Hill is perfect for a short walk, where views stretch for miles across the Vale of Taunton – on a clear day you can see all the way to Wales. But if you feel in the mood for a more challenging walk, Staple Hill is part of the Staple Fitzpaine Herepath trail, stretching over 13 miles.

Shop ‘til you drop

If you prefer your walking to include shopping, we are in easy reach of Taunton (15 minute drive) – the county town of Somerset. Here you’ll find a large range of shopping and dining choices. Clarkes Village Designer Retail Outlet, is 40 minutes away. The cities of Exeter and Bristol are within an hour’s drive and well worth a visit.

For groceries, the small market town of Ilminster is a delight, with local butchers, bakers, greengrocers, delis and cafes, plus supermarkets. We also permit supermarket deliveries (strictly between the hours of 10am & 6pm) if you prefer to get your groceries online.

Eating & drinking

If you don’t fancy cooking in the fully equipped, modern kitchen, there are is a lovely range of local pubs, cafes, and places worth a visit:

Of course, you shouldn’t visit the west country without trying award winning local ales, ciders and cheeses.

Fabulous days out

We are in easy reach of many west country visitor attractions, perfect for day trips.

Visit the wonderful west country coast – Lyme Regis, Westbay (Broadchurch location), Seaton (Pecorama & tram), Beer (runner up for village of the year 2018), and Sidmouth (home to the Donkey Sanctuary), with many coastal villages in between worth exploring.
