Taunton, Somerset

Spend a few hours in Taunton and see for yourself just how popular and charming the county town of Taunton is. Vibrant shops, both independent and high street. Markets including a large Farmers Market on a Thursday dominate the pedestrian districts. Try local delights including local cider, bread and vegetables. All perfect for taking back to Chilcott's Barn and cooking up a local feast!

Take a stroll in Vivary Park and admire the beautiful gardens. If you are feeling like a little spot of adrenaline sports, then seek out the high ropes. For a more sedate afternoon you'll find a golf course! Marvel at the spectacular Taunton Castle, now a 5* hotel and restaurant. An excellent choice for a celebration dinner.

Sporting enthusiasts will love Somerset Country Cricket ground and attached museum. This is a short walk from the high street and takes you past a variety of lovely independent shops and a few rather 'in-trend' pubs serving great craft beers!
