Pardlestone Farm - Rural B&B and self-catering cottage In the folds of the Quantock Hills - a world away from urban life

We would love to welcome you to our farmhouse bed-and-breakfast and self-catering cottage in the Quantock Hills, the west country's least known yet most accessible unspoilt wilderness. Perfect as a base for walking, horse riding and mountain biking (visitors are welcome to bring bikes, dogs and even horses by arrangement), it's only a few hundred yards along our sleepy no-through lane and on to the hills, half a mile in the other direction takes you to the village shop and award-winning pub, and a mile on from the village and you'll be down on Kilve beach.

Here, the stratified Jurassic cliffs make for such a spectacular landscape that it's designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and considered to be of international geological importance. Observant visitors may be lucky enough to discover an ammonite in the fossil-beds, where some of the oldest examples ever recorded in Britain have been uncovered.

The Quantocks themselves are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), comprising thousands of acres of open moorland and ancient wooded valleys which are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways, including the nationally important Coleridge Way. Through the hills and valleys you can follow in the footsteps of the romantic poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his friend, William Wordsworth, all the way to Lynmouth, or link to the Two Moors Way and the South West Coast Path.

Those who prefer to holiday in quiet contemplation are welcome to relax in the gardens at Pardlestone Farm, where there'll be little to interrupt the sound of birdsong, save the scampering hooves of a passing deer or the distant whistle of a heritage steam train.

Take in a little sight-seeing and you'll find a Norman castle, abundant wildlife, chocolate-box villages, teashops, gardens and even outlet shopping, all within easy reach. If you prefer to travel at a leisurely pace, the West Somerset Steam Railway can transport you to many such locations and on the way, will open up new and breath-taking vistas from the Quantocks out to sea, and on towards Exmoor.

Those who prefer to see a little more action will find some of the UK's top surfing beaches, plentiful fishing and golfing opportunities, and the Glastonbury Festival all within striking distance.

Although Pardlestone Farm feels a world away from the hubbub of modern life, we are just an hour's drive from Bristol (M4/M5 intersection) and closer to London and Birmingham than Devon or Cornwall.
