Riverside - Westport, Langport, Somerset, England - Sleeps 6


Riverside sleeps up to six guests and is located in the small hamlet of Westport, equidistant from Ilminster and Langport and approximately thirty minutes drive from the county town of Taunton and Yeovil.

It makes a perfect base for touring the delightful county of Somerset, Devon and Dorset and visiting the many interesting places and attractions in the area including: the Yeovilton's Fleet Air Arm Museum, which is a super attraction for all ages and home to the first Concorde built in Britain; several local National Trust Properties, famous for their architecture and gardens including Barrington Court (less than two miles away); Forde Abbey with its extensive stunning gardens and Montacute House full of Elizabethan glory.

The Roman city of Bath with its many attractions and the Clarks Village Shopping Outlet in the village of Street, both make interesting and enjoyable day trips. For wildlife lovers, Sedgemoor Lowlands and Wetlands offer a wonderful opportunity to see the many species of birds that make this rare environment their natural habitat.

The River Parrett at Langport is an ideal place for the keen fisherman or for those who just want to discover and enjoy the Parrett landscape.

A visit to Dorset and East Devon's Jurassic coast, one of England's first Natural World Heritage sites, is a must with fossil hunting popular with both children and adults. Alternatively visit the quaint fishing village/resort of Lyme Regis with it's harbour and Cobb (as seen in the film "The French Lieutenant Woman") or West Bay (where the filming of "Broadchurch" took place).

For those who want to stay closer to home, opposite the cottage you can set off and explore the droves or wander/cycle along the canal tow paths, with cycle hire and planned routes available at Langport.
