Somerset Reports

Goathurst, Somerset

Review of Goathurst by Lizzie on August 13th, 2009
Goathurst is a very pretty little village set in the foothills of the Quantocks, right in the heart of Somerset. It is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many lovely walks from here and interesting places to see, including Halswell House and it's folly the Temple of Harmony. St Edwards Church (CofE) is in the centre of the village and contains the family tomb of Nicholas Halswell Tynte who commissioned the building of Halswell House. In Goathurst there is a little hamlet called Huntstile with Huntstile Organic Farm which is a lovely B&B with it's own stone circle at the top of a hill. There are also several delightful self-catering properties at the farm and also just along the road at Sherwood. The views from this area are open and panoramic - defintely worth a visit.
