Somerset Reports

Ilchester, Somerset

Review of Ilchester by John on February 23rd, 2006
Ilchester is a sleepy little Somerset village about 4 miles out of Yeovil and is host to 2 pubs and 2 hotels. Of the pubs my personal favourite is The Dolphin, and of the hotels The Ilchester Arms is a very pleasant watering hole too, the Arms having the advantage of being open all day. Ilchester is quite a useful base for visiting South Somerset but has its own unique history too, having been quite an important Roman garrison town. A popular local attraction is The Fleet Air Arm Museum just up the road at RNAS Yeovilton
