With the Quantock Hills on our doorstep anyone one wanting a short walk in the Quantocks can either walk straight from the house or, if a quick fix is required, jump in the car and be in the very centre of the hill within five minutes.

Trip Advisor

Some B&B’s dislike Trip Advisor, complaining that it does not give an accurate reflection of a property and that reviews are made up.

As far as we are concerned, the site gives an accurate reflection of our property and what we do. It also allows guests to report any niggles and, in turn, allows us to do […]

Things Sent to Try Us!

Occasionally challenges are sent to test us and this weekend, with a full house on both Friday and Saturday night, someone with a very wry sense of humour decided that life was just a little bit too easy.

Nether Stowey Shooting Stars

Each 12th August we venture up to the Castle Mount in the hope of seeing a few shooting stars as part of the Perseids Meteor Shower. Normally, it’s too cloudy and we thought it was going to be similar this year as the sky was grey at 10.00pm. However, at about 10.45 the skies cleared […]

Nether Stowey May Fair

After a few months concentrating on other things we are now back in earnest with our regular Old Cider House blogs.

There is so much to do in the Quantocks and it’s such a shame not to tell people about them.

A Short Break this Autumn?

As we move into the winter months we find we have more time to really appreciate both the Quantocks and devote to our visitors and guests.

We have more time to cook and produce our hearty evening meals (as part of a dinner, bed and breakfast package perhaps?), using locally sourced produce including local venison and […]

Happy New Year from Somerset

As the last of the New Year guests depart, we can take a deep breath and reflect on the Quantocks in 2011 and get on with all that 2012 promises.

Christmas and New Year were hectic here in the Quantock Hills. Our New Year break guests particularly energetic, approaching the two night break with gusto and […]
