You will find this ancient village surrounded by some of Somerset’s most idyllic countryside, near the market town of Chard. On the doorstep of holiday cottages in Combe St Nicholas, superb walking can be enjoyed in the rolling countryside of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The footpaths to the Otterhead Lakes, Culm Davy Woodland, and Culmstock Beacon are all spectacular. From your holiday cottage in Combe St Nicholas, take a wander into the village centre, where you will discover a traditional Somerset community. A graceful church stands on Vicarage Hill, opposite a small grocery. A pint of ale or a bite to eat at the Green Dragon is highly recommended. Nearby, the town of Chard is well worth a visit, with many historic landmarks, including the 11th century Church of St Mary the Virgin. Close enough to Combe St Nicholas for day trips, the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is famous for its heathland, forests, rolling hills and rugged coast where dinosaur fossils can be found. To the south, sandy beaches and fishing villages await discovery on the East Devon coast.
