Beercrocombe, Somerset

Beercrocombe is a quiet village just 1 mile from Curry Mallet and 7 miles from Taunton. It lies in beautiful Somerset countryside so naturally there are several good walks around the village on lanes, footpaths and bridleways. Despite there being no pub or shop (there are both in Curry Mallet) there's a good community and it's a friendly little place; the old phone box, like many these days, has been converted to a book exchange. The church of St James is one of those simple country churches that are very pretty, which is nice, and it's got some fascinating hunky-punks carved at the bottom of the archways. Incorporate the village into a walk; it's rather charming.
