15-20 minutes drive along the fantastic coastline and the Quantock Hills known as Coleridge Company. Coleridge lived in this area for several years and wrote his most famous poems whilst here. His old house is a small place to visit but it is set amongst a small but bustling village with a butchers…
National Trust property, the home of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, author of The Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan. Start of the Coleridge Way Walking Trail.
Limited hours of opening but worth a visit and perhaps a drink at the Ancient Mariner pub opposite.
Updated recently and within easy driving distance. A must see if you are walking the Coleridge Way route.

“ The Driftwood is a licensed 1930’s beachside Cafe and Restaurant alongside the Coast path, with the beach in front of the cafe and the West Somerset Railway running directly behind it. The Blue Anchor steam railway station is only 50 metres away, so catch the train from Watchet! Seating inside, outside and a sheltered verandah to suit the weather and seasons Dog friendly ”

“A 10 minute drive from my space or alternatively go by steam train from Williton Station and it’s a couple of stops and a short walk from the train. This is a beautiful Abbey ruin, you can walk in the grounds for free but have to pay to go in to see more. There is not much roof so it is a basic ruin but there are still some magnificent structures to see and the setting is glorious. It is an English Heritage site so if you are a member you will get in free. There are some events held here in the summer so watch out for those. After visiting here you could pop to Torre Cider Farm down the road for a coffee and food and cider souvenirs!”

“Tropiquaria Zoo is one of the most unique zoos or wildlife parks in the country. The former "Art Deco" BBC radio transmitter station originally built in 1933, now houses our Tropical Hall, Nocturnal House and Aquarium. Outside we have 4 acres of animal enclosures, along with our two life size pirate ships, and adventure castle,”

“ Kilve Beach near Watchet is a fascinating stretch of the Jurrasic coast. Grand limestone cliffs back the slate and shingle beach, with interesting rock formations sweeping the shoreline. There are impressive fossils dotted around, and plenty of rock pools to explore if you are looking for something to entertain the kids. Similarly, the ever-changing shapes and curves give plenty of material for keen photographers. Or perhaps head for a walk – you’ll be surprised how far you can get (in a sturdy pair of boots!) A large grassy area behind the beach makes a great spot for a picnic or head to the nearby Chantry Tea Gardens”
