Visit Stogumber

Stogumber is well worth a visit, to experience the almost unspoilt village with its higgeldy piggeldy multi coloured houses, beautiful historic church, traditional country pub and wealth of good quality places to stay.  It is just over a mile from Stogumber station.  From the centre of the village you can walk in any direction and be in beautiful Somerset countryside in minutes.  It is a haven of silence, dark skies and fresh air – with beautiful views and vistas at every turn.

The station is unique – being built on the side of a cliff with a sheer drop on both sides.  The old goods yard and shed are now a beautiful garden where you can partake of an excellent selection of tasty refreshments.
