The two apartments at Crowcombe Court are in an excellent location, sitting in the foothills of the Quantocks, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The village of Crowcombe, has a lovely friendly atmosphere and is home to a convenient community-run shop, which sells many of the daily essentials, as well as a post office and a pub. Williton is only five miles away and has a larger range of shops, a bank and a petrol station. The apartments can also receive deliveries from Sainsburys, Tesco and Waitrose for guests looking to order food online.
Eating out whilst staying at the apartment? There are plenty of places to enjoy a good meal including the nearby Carew Arms, Bicknoller Inn, The Farmers Arms, The Luttrell Arms and The Notley Arms. Many of the pubs serve locally sourced food and are dog and family friendly.
With the Quantock Hills on your doorstep the apartments are ideal for walkers. One of the favourites amongst visitors to the area is the trek to Bicknoller Post, which is a great place to look out for the red deer, or to enjoy a picnic. The Coleridge Way is also perfect for walkers with the route taking visitors from the Quantocks to Exmoor. A wonderful place to stop along the way is Coleridge Cottage at Nether Stowey. Once on Exmoor take a trip to Dunkery Beacon, which is the highest point within the National Park and has breath-taking views across the moors towards the ocean.
Cyclists and horse riders will also love this stunning area with many bridleways offering excellent opportunities to see the scenery. The apartments have a covered bike wash-down area, as well as a bike stand for 5 bikes in the Courtyard.
Setting off for a day trip? There are several nearby attractions that are well worth a visit. One of the most relaxing ways to discover the beauty of the area is via the West Somerset Railway, which runs from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead. This period railway line features historic steam engines and trains. Along the way stop off at Watchet, an ancient harbour town with more than 1,000 years of history, Washford, where Cleeve Abbey is located, and Dunster, the setting of a castle, which has sections that date back to the Norman times.
Blue Anchor is a lovely quiet seaside village, and is only 13 miles from the apartments. The village has a long sandy beach and is popular with families. If stopping for a bite to eat the Driftwood Café and the Smugglers Pub are ideal venues.
Other nearby attractions include the Holnicote Estate and Hestercombe House and Gardens.
