There is a wealth of activities to be enjoyed in and around West Bagborough.


You can walk from our front door straight onto the Quantocks where you are likely to see red deer, buzzards and a wide variety of other wildlife. Charlie and Jane can advise on the best walks in the area, as well as providing maps and packed lunches, if required.

Exmoor is a 30 minute drive away for those who enjoy a wilder countryside and there are a number of long distance walks that cross the area (The MacMillan Way, West Deane Way, The Coleridge Way).

The Jurassic Coast and the popular destinations of Lyme Regis, Beer and Weymouth are an hour or so by car.

The West Somerset Railway

10 minutes from Bashfords, the railway recaptures the era of the branch line network in the days of steam. Enjoy 20 miles of glorious Somerset scenery as the train rolls back the years on its journey from the Quantocks to the sea.

Garden and National Trust enthusiasts

Visit Dunster Castle, Barrington Court, Lytes Cary, Montacute House.

The beautifully restored gardens of Hestercombe are a short drive away.
