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.

As any holidaymaker in the UK will know, checking the weather before you leave your Wellington holiday accommodation for the day is an absolute necessity.

It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the thoughtful 'welcome' provisions; a delicious home-made cake and basics like milk and bread. The location was great, just a short walk to the high street where we found interesting shops and a wide choice of pubs and cafes. We especially liked the deli, which had lots of delicious, locally sourced produce and real ales to buy to take home. We could have been totally self-sufficient in the village, but there were also plenty of large supermarkets a short drive away. Great for the dogs too, as there were lots of walks right from the doorstep. As the cottage was so warm and cosy we thought it would be a great place to stay over Christmas or in the Winter, and we would definitely like to return one day.

For our arrival everything was arranged with thought and care. My family get together was a huge success. The area is quiet and picturesque, and the cottage is cosy and beautifully furnished.

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.
