Williton, Somerset

Williton is a big village in Somerset, a mere 2 miles from Watchet; you can’t fail to find it because it’s on the junctions of the A39 and A358 from Minehead to Bridgwater and Taunton. Williton is one of those places where not a great deal goes on but in a way that’s nice and it’s what small towns/big villages are like around these parts; it’s all very friendly and peaceful and everyone is generally very kind to one another. There's a newsagents, post office, country clothing store, a farmhouse butchers, and two supermarkets so you can certainly stock up on provisions whilst you’re here. There's even an Indian restaurant, The Bengal Spice, which is open in the evenings, but if you find yourself in need of nourishment in the day time go to Avenue 39 Café/Bistro or the Masons Arms Hotel and Restaurant, or come back there after a walk in the Brendon and Quantock Hills. Williton has a notable air of excitement in early summer when they hold the annual duck race, and agan in August when the cricket festival is on. Go on down there, have a look around; go to the heritage station and catch a steam train to Minehead or Blue Anchor with The West Somerset Railway.
