Places to visit and things to see during your stay:
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 within easy reach of both the M5 and the A303.
This area of Somerset is largely unspoilt and great for exploring.
There are many open gardens and National trust properties nearby. There is information available here on most of them for your use during your stay.
( Please note: it may be necessary to check their website and to book prior to your visit)
For keen birdwatchers we are very close to several RSPB reserves, the West Sedgemoor reserve is literally just up the road and Ham Wall, one of the best locations for viewing Starling murmurations, is about forty minutes away
( please check the RSPB website for accessibility)
If you enjoy walking, we are near the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding beauty, with miles of designated footpaths and fabulous views. A little further afield are the Quantocks, Exmoor and the Mendips and the South West Coastal Path
If you want to get out and about, the Cathedral City of Wells is less than an hour away ( Market days Wednesdays and Saturdays) more locally, there are many charming villages and market towns to explore. Frome and Bruton are a little further, but offer a great day out.
