Interesting places to visit near Brewers Cottage
Brewers Cottage is on the Northern edge of the village of Isle Brewers, near to the Somerset Levels and close to the Devon and Dorset borders. We are within easy reach of both the M5 and the A303.
This area of Somerset is unspoilt and great for exploring.
There are many open gardens and National trust properties nearby. For keen birdwatchers we are very close to RSPB reserves, the West Sedgemoor reserve is literally just up the road and the Ham Wall reserve, one of the best locations for viewing Starling murmurations, is about half an hour away.
If you enjoy walking, we are only a quarter of an hour away from the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding beauty with miles and miles of designated footpaths and fabulous views. A little further afield are Exmoor, the Mendips, the Quantocks or the South West Coastal Path
If you want to get out and about, the Cathedral City of Wells is less than an hour away and, more locally, there are many charming villages and market towns to explore with great pubs for a stop-by for lunch.
If you fancy a day out at the seaside we are mid way between the North and South coasts, both are within easy reach by car.
In the immediate area, there is the Somerset Cider Brandy Company at Burrow Hill, the Smokery at Hambridge , The Willow and Wetlands Centre at Stoke St Gregory and John Leach's Muchelney Pottery or Paul and Marion Jessup's pottery at Barrington Court, where you can have a go on the potter's wheel and learn how to throw a pot
