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.

Local towns worth a visit were withing easy reach from Honiton. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The property is highly recommended if you want to get away from the "hussle and bussle" of daily life...

It far exceeded our expectations, it's even better than it looks in photographs. Great facilities. We were able to cook a huge roast dinner for 12 people and all eat together in the great hall with a huge roaring fire beside us The gardens really compliment the property and were lovely to walk around. We would love to come back in the summer and use the barbeque and pool. Alan and Wendy (the owners) were really friendly and helpful. They were always on hand when we needed them. Arrival and departure went really smoothly (aside from us not wanting to leave this amazing place!) We can't recommend it highly enough!

Really friendly people and luxurious accommodation. High quality furnishings and amazingly warm, even without the gorgeous wood burner on the go! Lovely views and so peaceful. On a clear night we went out into garden, it was pitch dark and the stars we could see were amazing, clearest I've ever seen the Milky Way Galaxy! I love the fact that in most of the pubs in this area you can sit with your dog, which is great if you're out walking and fancy stopping for a bite to eat or a quick pint! Minehead is worth a trip, and go to the Apple Tree Café (number 1 in Menhead, just look at the cakes) as they LOVE dogs and give them treats and their own blanket to lie on when you go in! I would definitely return to these cottages as they are 5 star quality and you just step out of the front door and you've countryside walks straight away - and I'd love to see the 4 resident dogs again, so friendly!!!
