Things to do in Wellington

Located in the wide valley of the Vale of Taunton between the Brendon and Blackdown Hills in Somerset, Wellington is a busy industrial town most famous for giving its name to the 1st Duke of Wellington but dating its history back to the Domesday Book.

-Say hello to a British hero: The “Iron Duke” became a British hero after defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 – the 175ft Wellington Monument, on the edge of the Blackdowns, was erected in his honour and can be seen for miles around, especially at night when it is illuminated. Climbing the 235 steps to the obelisk should be a must-do for every visitor in Wellington holiday apartments and despite the hike, you will be rewarded with marvellous views of the Vale of Taunton towards Exmoor National Park and the Bristol Channel.

-Wellington Museum: The town has a rich industrial heritage, dating back to the 18th century when a woollen mill was established by the Quaker Fox family – the Wellington Museum reveals more about the family’s work in the town and their legacy, evidenced in Fox Park, which was gifted to the town in 1903.

-Foodie Delights: The area around Wellington is also rich in farming and the fine local produce led to the town becoming a “Food Town” in 2006. Specialist food and retail outlets around town promote local foods and suppliers along with annual culinary and tasting events. Check out the delights of Somerset and Devon when you dine out locally or perhaps even shop for all you need to prepare your own meal in your Wellington holiday accommodation.

-Outdoor pursuits: are a given in this part of the world – try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or archery; go horse riding or pony trekking in Exmoor National Park, only a short drive away; or try fly fishing and try to land the big one. Wellington is surrounded by several local nature reserves, located at Wellington Basins on the western edge of the town. The wildlife habitats include grasslands and woodland, flora and fauna such as birds and bats, and amphibians such as the Great Crested Newt.

-Taunton is the largest and county town of Somerset and has been a busy settlement since the 8th century. Today, the 12thcentury Saxon castle is the main point of interest being home to a museum and also a restaurant considered one of the best places to eat in the British Isles. At just seven miles distant, Taunton is an easy trip from holiday cottages in Wellington.

The owners care, thought and consideration for their guests comfort is something to be admired. The quality of fittings, utensils, furnishing and bedding is second to none. The cleanliness is unbelievable. I have never been anywhere and not washed the cutlery and plates before I have used them - but not here! It's immaculate. Like many, I read the reviews before I book anywhere and, for this property, with the exception of one (which of course, we have all read), they are all 5*. My Weimaraner unfortunately died a few years ago and I have never replaced him. To say this is a dog friendly cottage is an understatement. In a spacious and warm utility area, there is a very large cage and beautiful bed. By the side is a comfy settee if your dog prefers. With it's own private shower; doggie mat and towels, this is 5* accommodation for any size pooch. The request not to allow dogs upstairs or on the rest of the furniture in this property is very reasonable (and a rule I applied with my own dog at home). To ask that dogs be shut in the utility area if they are to be left alone is also reasonable and common sense; after all, we all know what they get up to once our backs are turned. To abuse these simple rules is total disrespect in my opinion, not only to the owners but also those guests who choose not to have a dog. I cannot recommend this property highly enough - with or without a dog. The communication with the owner is excellent; nothing is too much trouble and I received a lovely email and confirmation that my deposit had been refunded before I arrived home!

The location was perfect for walking out into the village and the many walks in the surrounding area. It was lovely to have flowers and cake when we arrived and there was everything we needed for our stay.

Hearty eating, Aga roasts, big breakfasts and plenty of celebratory drinks. The house was large enough for everyone to have space but also to gather all in one room for meals. The grounds are interesting and the location is close to the sea and countryside, with the heart of Exmoor a short drive away. Tracy made it easy and we wanted for nothing. It is an excellent hose for a big gathering.
