"Coopershill, although grand and elegant, does not take itself too seriously. There is a snooker room in the basement, hats on antlers, and smiling O’Haras at every return of the spiral staircase. It’s almost as if the building has absorbed the warmth of seven generations of welcoming souls...."
The Jolly Sailor
Located just a stone’s throw from Orford Quay, the Jolly Sailor Pub and Guest House has been here since the late 16th century, and was allegedly built from the timbers of a shipwreck. It now offers four lovely rooms, all recently refurbished and boasting some luxurious touches including roll top baths, Nespresso Coffee machines, DAB radios and those essential fluffy towels. The food here is a major pull for locals and tourists alike, offering delicious seasonal menus including smoked hams, handmade sausages and fresh local seafood. After breakfast you could head out to Orford Quay for some fishing or a boat trip, just chill out in the bar with the papers or enjoy some occasional live music out in the garden from sea shanties to opera.
Brynawel Guest House
Delightful bedrooms at this B&B are in keeping with the Georgian surrounds: some have cast-iron fireplaces, brass bedsteads and tie-backed curtains; the downstairs room has lovely wooden panelling and shutters. A short stroll away down a leafy lane is Glyn and Corina's own restaurant, Glan yr Afon, where breakfast and dinner are served.
Recorded in the Domesday Book, this flourmill is one of the few remaining working watermills in the UK. The River Axe still powers the old Victorian cogs which drive the millstones, producing flour sold throughout Somerset, and supplying various restaurants and bakeries in the region. The mill is open daily for tours (advance bookings only) or for a quiet wander around the museum. Louise and Steve also run B&B in some of the neighbouring buildings.
The nearest railway station is Wells, and the museum is just a half hour walk away from there. Also nearby is Route 3 on the National Cycle Network.
Exmoor Owl & Hawk Centre
Tucked away down a rural lane near the idyllic National Trust village of Allersford, this characterful place – the main part of West Lynch Farm was built in 1456, and believed to have been the original manor of Bossington – has just two simple guest rooms imbued with the charm and style you’d expect in what’s essentially still a working farmhouse. Fly owls and other birds of prey at the raptor centre, saddle up for a horse ride on the moor, take a stroll to Porlock or along the nearby South West Coast Path, or relax with a cream tea in the bird-bustling gardens. From £70 for two.
