Town End Farm - The Old Bakery

Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Crowcombe, Somerset, England
The Old Bakery sits in the grounds of Town End Farm on the edge of the ancient village of Crowcombe in the heart of the Quantock Hills, the first area in Britain designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a footpath directly opposite the entrance which leads right up to the top of the hills and across the surrounding countryside which has changed very little from the days when it inspired the romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth.

Just a few minutes walk will take you into the heart of the village, where you will find the village church, shop with Post Office and also the excellent pub, The Carew Arms.

The Old Bakery is perfect for the traditional summer holiday or for short breaks any time of the year.

We keep a small selection of outdoor play equipment for young children. Transportation for the setting down and...

About the neighbourhood
The Quantock Hills attract walkers, cyclists, horse riders and people simply admiring nature. Although one of the smallest range of hills in the country, the Quantocks are considered to be one of the finest. There are frequent sightings of red deer and wild ponies grazing amongst the heather and bracken, and the sight and sound of buzzards as they circle on the thermals overhead. There are many delightful places to picnic and enjoy the views. Come simply to enjoy the peace, the heather-clad moors, deep valleys, and sparkling brooks. You can pop in to one of the pretty villages dotted around the hills, where you can take a break for a warming pub roast or a scrumptious afternoon cream tea.

According to one of the Mountain Bike magazines, The Quantocks Hills are the mountain biking area of...
