Nether Stowey

Try a holiday cottage in Nether Stowey.  Nether Stowey is not only a vibrant and busy village, but is also designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by some stunning coastal and moorland scenery.  This pretty village is located at the foot of the Quantock Hills in Somerset, just below Over Stowey and is a great base for walking, riding and other rural pursuits. 

Nether Stowey is most famous for being the home for many years of Samuel Taylor Coleridge who lived in the village and wrote several of his poems here.  The cottage where he lived in the village is now owned by the National Trust ("Coleridge Cottage") and is open to the public from April to September.  You can also walk the "Coleridge Way" where you can follow in the footsteps of the famous poet from Nether Stowey to Porlock.  The walk is 36 miles long.

This historical village is said to be mentioned in the Domesday Book and features tea shops,  a hair dresser, butcher and library.  There are also 3 pubs: Rose and Crown, George and the Ancient Mariner.

The North Somerset coast is about 2-3 miles away.  The small port of Watchet and the resort town of Minehead can be found to the west.  Further west again is the Exmoor National Park, another area of outstanding natural beauty.
