When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Jan with some lovely flowers handpicked from...

About the neighbourhood
Sampford Brett is a pretty and tranquil village nestling between the beautiful Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Exmoor National Park. It has a Norman church, fine 18th century cottages and a pretty stream meandering through. We are within ¾ of a mile of Williton, which has a full range of shops, pubs, an Indian Restaurant and a station on the West Somerset Steam Railway.

The coast is within 2 miles and the fossils at Kilve beach are only 5 miles away. There are numerous lovely walks and cycle rides direct from the village and various stables that offer riding for all abilities. The Coleridge Way (51 miles from Nether Stowey to Lynmouth) passes our gate and we are offer a daily drop-off and collection service for guests walking this lovely route that takes you acros...
