Described as the 'Gateway to the Quantock Hills', Nether Stowey is a small yet busy and thriving village in the Sedgemoor district of Somerset. The village has been designated a Rural Centre, yet is easily accessible via the A39. The village dates back many centuries, referred to in Anglo-Saxon times as an agricultural settlement on the military road linking Cannington and Williton. The Doomsday Book mentions it as being one of four separate manors. It has a very long and interesting history. Close to the village are the remains of the 11th century Motte and Bailey castle, which gives a fantastic view of the village. One of the main tourist attractions in the area is Coleridge Cottage, built in the 17th century and now owned by the National Trust. The poet Coleridge lived there for two years and wrote some of his key works there, including The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Coleridge Way is a 36 mile stretch of footpath starting in the Quantock Hills, and following the paths of the walks taken by Coleridge himself. Whilst visiting Nether Stowey you can enjoy the hospitality of The Rose and Crown, a 17th century coaching inn, offering food and accommodation.
