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 were assured if there were anything we were to require they would be on hand however we had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen is so well equipped especially for the 12 of us who love to cook and bake. The children had an enless stream of entertainment from the substantial collection of board games, books and dvds to the extensive gardens with large pool and outdoor games. The house was clean and comfortable and in the perfect location. There's a comfortable outdoor seating area where you could watch the sun set and wait for the creatures of the night to appear our favourite of which a hedgehog we named Rambo due to his size and stealth! If he greets you he's rather partial to apple and pear! Thank you Steph and Dave for allowing us to share your home. We wouldn't hesitate to rebook another visit. There's so much space for a large family get together it's just perfect! :-)

Miles away from city noise but easy access to Taunton when you need it. Also Exmoor, South Coast, Bath are only a short drive away. Everything was as described and Rachel and Simon were warm and welcoming. We'd reccomend the Chalet to anyone looking for a few days quiet break.
