Wedmore, our wonderful village, is the location of the peace treaty between King Alfred and the Danes. It is a vibrant village with something going on most evenings.

Nut Tree Farm is located in an ideal holiday area. We are well situated for visits to Wells, the smallest City in Britain, with it's magnificent Cathedral and Bishop's Palace; Glastonbury is the ancient spiritual centre of Britain, where legends abound, relating to Arthur, the giant zodiac, visits from Jesus and Joseph of Arimathea and so much more. You may visit the Abbey Ruins and Museum, the Tor, Chalice Well (and drink the healing waters) and the Rural Life Museum, amongst the many places of interest.

Stanton Drew stone circle, which is en route to Bath, is just on the north side of the Mendip Hills. Taking the route through Cheddar Gorge is a delight. Ask us for directions.

The famous Clarks Village & Shoe Museum, Longleat House & Safari Park are within easy reach. And now, of course, the recently opened amazing Tyntesfield House, which is about a half hour drive away. The Chapel is now open to the public and work in progress can be seen during visits.

Millfield and The Cathedral Schools are only 20 minutes away for parents wanting to visit their children, yet be away from the towns.

There are many beautiful and wild places to see, including Cheddar Gorge, Ebba Gorge, Mendip Hills, which are all easy to reach. The caves at Wookey Hole and Cheddar are well worth visiting, being famous for the quality of the caves, and for the cavers who train within.

 

At the Peat Moor Visitors Centre on the famous Somerset Levels you can see the oldest 'roads' in Britain and walk on replicas of these 6000 years old wooden track ways. There is also a 'replica' of a pre-historic round house, a working forge, a pole lathe, a museum and more.

The moors are of special interest to bird watchers and ideal for tranquil walks and cycle rides. Fishing is very popular over much of the moors. Seeing the starling flying formations at dust at one of the nature reserves is a real must.

Weston-Super-Mare, Brean, Berrow and Burnham-on-Sea are only 25 minutes away. Brean Down juts out into the sea and is a nature reserve of beauty, with great views across to Wales on a clear day and is the site of a ruined Napoleonic fort. It makes for a really good walk. Parking on the beaches is usually possible - plenty of sand dunes, and good for wind surfing and kite flying.
