Ideal for outdoorsy-types

Wedmore is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies on the doorstep of the Somerset levels, with the Mendips a few miles to the north. This means you can spend Sundays cycling down miles of surrounding peaceful roads, exploring rural walking tracks or riding through nearby hills.

Wedmore, Somerset

Full of fun and festivals

‘Boring’ is not a word you’d use to describe living here. For a start, it’s blessed with oodles of festivals through the year, from opera to ale to art. It also has a sense of humour. The popular spoof art award – The Turnip Prize – is awarded annually by organisers at The George Hotel for the best in awful art!

Shopping’s a treat

Spend an afternoon wandering around this peaceful place and you’ll discover special little shops on the High Street and in two small malls – from women’s and wedding fashion to furnishings, craft and bespoke designed jewellery. For the foodies …. drop into the deli, fishmonger, greengrocer, butcher and farm shop – all independent and local.

It’s a hive of activity

Wedmore certainly punches above its weight in terms of activities – to start with a challenging 18 hole golf course sits on the edge of the village. If fresh air and hills are more your thing, cycling in and around the Mendips with stunning views will aid your fitness and wellbeing. Take a trip to the generous sports facility with floodlit astro, tennis, football, cricket and bowls and consider Brownies and Cubs for that after-school fun. A full programme of pilates, yoga and dance is covered across several locations … you’ll never be at a loss for things to do!

Eat, drink and be merry

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to eating and drinking out. For morning meet-ups or lunch with friends, plump for the café at Pumpkin delicatessen that stocks produce from Somerset and around the world. Later, enjoy coffee and cake while browsing for home furnishings at Wedmore’s vintage tea shop and for special occasions, evening dining or a Sunday roast pop along to The Swan – a stylish boutique hotel, open all day every day.
