Each day is different in the village of Aller and its surrounding area, it is steeped  in history, events and local businesses.

Nearby there are many different things to see & do including willow weaving, visiting a local cider farm or 'Shack', walking along the Parrett Trail, cycling many scenic routes (cycles can be hired locally), exploring a nature reserve, shopping at the designer outlet - Clark's Village; looking around the historic and famous Glastonbury with its Rural Life Museum.  Wells Cathedral and Sherborne Abbey are within a 30 minute drive. 

 

The Langport Annual Steam and Country Fair, which takes place in July, is well worth a visit, together with the obligatory trip to The Rose and Crown known locally as Eli's  - a local pub with an inside-out bar.  Eli's hosts many and varied groups throughout  the year - vintage motor bikes, tractors, cars, and bands to name just a few - they also have a shop selling local produce.

 

Popular places to eat in the area include Kitchen at the Wharf, The Bridge, The Langport Arms, The Devonshire Arms,  The Halfway House, the Drayton Crown and  The George at Middlezoy.

Attractions include: Aller Hill Vineyard (Smith and Evans), Bere Cider Company, The Dragon Pool (open March-October), John Leach - Muchelney Pottery, The Willows & Wetlands Visitor Centre, King's Sedgemoor Equestrian - a 10 minute drive away, or try a basket making course at Musgrove Willows

The milk produced on our farm goes to a local traditional Farmhouse Cheese Maker - their cheddar is available both locally and in supermarkets. More about the cheese can be found at: www.barbers.co.uk.

A great place for weddings and events is the neighboring Dairyhouse Farm: www.dairyhousefarm.co.uk - you may even like to be married at St Andrew's!
