About the location
Bridgwater 9 miles; Watchet 10 miles.
The quiet village of Stogursey is situated close to the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and only a mile from the sea. To the west lies Exmoor, and to the east are the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury and Wells. The village has a traditional friendly pub, a couple of village shops and an interesting castle with pretty moat. The Somerset Levels is one of the best places in the world for birdwatching, and the local Steart Peninsula, to the north of Stogursey, is part of the Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve (NNR) and is a vast area which is part of a larger Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). For a spot of relaxing fishing, the nearby Burton Springs Fishery is regarded as one of Somerset’s finest and most tranquil fisheries, and has the benefit of three spring-fed lakes. The Coleridge Way is a beautiful 36-mile walking route through the stunning Somerset countryside of the Quantock Hills, the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, a landscape that inspired Coleridge to produce some of his best-known work. Children may enjoy Tropiquaria at Watchet or just playing on the beach. Locally, hunting for fossils in Kilve is always popular, or the steam train at Bishops Lydeard. This lovely village is a great base for exploring the area.
