At Ham Bottom it feels like your own little world, so you might not want to go out anywhere. And why not, when there's everything you need right here? Plenty of living/entertaining space, sumptuous bedrooms with ensuite facilities, a games room, indoor swimming pool and sauna, a hot tub, year-round BBQ lodge and play area.
But if you want to venture into the gorgeous Somerset countryside, you'll find walks right on the doorstep, along footpaths and around the lanes. Possibly one of the nicest things to do is to stroll across the fields to The Globe at Appley Cross, to the White Post Cafe for coffee in the garden, or up the hill to The Martlet in the village.
It’s only a short drive into Wellington where you can browse the independent shops and the regular Farmer’s Market. When you’ve finished go and have lunch The Green Dragon or afternoon tea at Odette’s Tearoom. Go to Tiverton and have a ride along the Grand Western Canal on one of the few remaining horse-drawn barges in the country; otherwise hire Canadian canoes and take to the water under your own steam. Round it off with a drink on Duck’s Ditty Floating Café Bar or scones in the canal side tea gardens.
Take a trip to Exmoor National Park and roam the heathery heaths where wild ponies graze; discover the lush river valleys, dramatic clifftops and picturesque villages. Soak up the charm of Selworthy with its picture-postcard cottages, see the tiny Culbone Church, and cross the ancient clapper bridge at Tarr Steps. The Quantocks are beautiful too, with steep wooded combes, high windswept ridges and views that stretch across the Bristol Channel to Wales.
If you like to be beside the seaside, go to Bishops Lydeard and jump onboard a good old-fashioned steam train with the West Somerset Railway, pootle through the countryside to Blue Anchor or Minehead for a few hours on the sands or go fossil hunting at Kilve. Over on the Jurassic Coast you can take a mackerel fishing trip or a rib ride at Lyme Regis, visit the Marine Aquarium and Dinosaurland Fossil Museum. If you like to ride the waves head down to Woolacombe or Croyde on the North Devon coast.
