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.

We stayed with our 2 dogs and the huge safe enclosed garden was great for them. Philip and Sarah are lovely, nothing was too much trouble and they lived close by should we have needed them. The property is beautiful, everything in fabulous condition and SCRUPULOUSLY clean. Everything you need to self cater is provided, nothing has been forgotten. It is the best place we have stayed and I cannot recommend the property and it's owners too highly. We will definitely be returning if they will have us! Thank you Sarah and Philip for a lovely holiday - just what we needed.
