Food & Drink
Apples, Cider and Cheddar Cheese are what Somerset is most famous for but with so much local produce on offer it is hard to know where to start. Now also the county is also the home of Butcombe Beer, the fastest selling bottled beer in the UK.
Thatchers Cider has been produced in Sandford for more than a hundred years and Capricorn Goats Cheese from The Lubborn Creamery comes from the beautiful valley of Cricket St Thomas. Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company is one of the few places in the country where Cheddar Cheese is still made by hand.
So, while you're trying to decide, why not enjoy a delicious Somerset cream tea with homemade scones, farmhouse clotted cream and Whortleberry jam, which is unique to the Exmoor area. We are not precious about whether you have the jam or cream first, just as long as you have lashings of both!
With a food heritage that includes Yeo Valley yogurts, Miles Tea & Coffee and Cricketer Farm Cheese as well as Exmoor Lamb, smoked eels and Cheddar Strawberries, you surely can't go wrong.
