Nether Stowey is a charming West Somerset village in Southwest England. It lies in the foothills of England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Quantock Hills. Nether Stowey developed as a centre for textiles and pottery during medieval times, and has held a weekly market since 1304. Take a stroll from your holiday cottage in Nether Stowey and you will discover a traditional Somerset community which remains largely untouched by tourism. There are three cosy pubs, The Ancient Mariner, The George, and The Rose and Crown, all serving a good selection of local ales and ciders, and hearty dishes. There are several family-run businesses including a post office and a small grocery. Quantock Tea Room is a lovely place to go for a slice of homemade cake or a light lunch.
