Local Interest

Including the Inn’s staff, Triscombe is home to only a handful of resident humans…

…they are far outnumbered by the local pheasants… aloof, road-hogging pheasants!… but our location more than makes up for their lack of social skills (the pheasant’s, that is).

We’re sat right on the foot of the Quantock Hills — England’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty — with views to die for. But if scenic walks and more picture perfect hotspots than you can shake a zoom lense at aren’t your cup of tea the area is packed with attractions that are well worth a visit.

We are only a short drive from Taunton Castle, Hestercombe Gardens, the Brewhouse Theatre and West Somerset Railway – where steam is still trendy. Slightly further afield but still under an hour away is Exmoor National Park and Exmouth Cliffs – a World Heritage Site dubbed “the Jurassic Coast” and there is plenty to keep a child’s mind occupied at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Tropiquaria and Cheddar Gorge. Stonehenge is under two hours away.
