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.
Places To Visit
Stogumber is a quintessential English village just over a mile away from the station. With its higgeldy piggeldy painted houses, thatched roofs, local pub and shop, village hall and the stunning St Marys Church it is well worth a visit. From the top of the Beacon Field, with picnic benches and its own community orchard, you have 360 degree views – over the Quantocks, Exmoor and the sea, and the beautiful rolling hills of Somerset.
