This house is famous for being owned by Tom Poole who brought inspirational people like Coleridge and Humphry Davy to Nether Stowey 200 years ago. Some of Coleridge's poems were written in the house and garden. Tom Poole was famous for his hospitality, and it continues today.
We stayed in Tom Poole's room and enjoyed the excellent, and substantial, breakfast that sets you up for a day walking in the Quantocks.
It is hard to imagine a better base for the many sights and activities locally. The rooms have just that extra touch of luxury that makes visiting special. It will not be hard to find an excuse to return. Quite outstanding.
