Curry Mallet, Somerset
A small village in Somerset 7 miles from Taunton; it sits in particularly attractive countryside with the backdrop of the Blackdown Hills and views of the Somerset Levels. You can do some good circular walks around the village and the surrounding lanes/footpaths, and if you do, have a good look round and you'll notice some notable historic buildings. Have lunch in the pub, The Bell Inn, or go to the little shop-come-post-office that's very well stocked with all the basics and home made goodies, and even has a little cafe where you can sit and enjoy a piece of cake and a cup of tea. There's a good community, with well attended regular events throughout the year, especially the annual summer fete; it's nice, feel the pace of life slow down and the weight lift from your shoulders.
