Somerset is home to over 400 different varieties of cider apples. Perhaps less known, its home to the longest preserved steam railway in the country too! There are 20 miles of tracks that have been carrying heritage steam and diesel passenger trains for over four decades. These now carry 200,000 passengers a year. If you’re a self confessed trainspotter then a break in Somerset will be right up your track! If you’re a fan of cider, then a break in Somerset will be full of sparkle!
Walnut Tree Hotel
For your trip to Somerset, the Walnut Tree Hotel in the Somerset village of North Pentherton is an excellent choice for accommodation. It’s a good base for exploring the coast too as there are sections of the South West coast path waiting to be walked. In addition, you can visit the railway station at Bishops Lydeard which is a 20 minute drive away and jump on board an authentic steam train!
Under New Management
The Walnut Tree Hotel has a new general manager. Daniel is encouraging local people as well as hotel guests to pop in and enjoy all the facilities the hotel has to offer. This includes the bar and restaurant which has a mouth watering new menu. The bar has a brand new range of Fever Tree Tonics and Gins too – which differs from the usual Somerset ciders!
The hotel boasts 34 en-suite bedrooms that are spacious and include modern furnishings.
There are ample free car parking spaces for hotel guests and those looking to visit the restaurant for a meal.
The head chef has created dishes using locally sourced produce from Somerset. There is a wide variety of dishes on the menu, such as cauliflower steak and pan fried chicken breast. If you’re more of a traditional foodie fan then Wednesdays will be your favourite day! You can enjoy the pie and pint offer that is available every Wednesday lunchtime and evening. Tuck into the pie of the day accompanied with a drink of your choice for just £12!
