Since 2005 Nether Stowey has been the starting point of The Coleridge Way, a medium distance trail stretching 51 miles across the Quantocks and the Brendon Hills and onto Exmoor, finishing at Lynmouth Harbour.  What better way to explore the beautiful unspoilt Somerset landscape and meet the local people than to walk across it as Coleridge himeself did. The Coleridge Way takes you to two other Walkers are Welcome destinations, Porlock and Lynton & Lynmouth. The route has its own website: click here for more info

The Castles & Coast Way

2019 saw the launch of the Castles and Coast Way a 13 mile circular trail linking Nether Stowey with the neighbouring village of Stogursey and on to the England Coast Path at Shurton. The new trail, funded by EDF Energy, also links up with the Coleridge Way in Nether Stowey and is way marked with a castle over running water. The route guide can be downloaded here.
