Rumwell Manor is the perfect base from which to explore the seemingly endless variety of attractions
to be found in Somerset and the adjacent counties.

Here are just a few suggestions of places to visit during your stay with us:


Hestercombe Gardens
One of Britain’s premier garden sites with 3 complete period gardens – Georgian landscape, Victorian terrace & formal Edwardian garden.

Sheppy’s Cider Farm Centre

The Donkey Sanctuary

The Donkey Sanctuary
A haven for donkeys that have been mistreated, neglected, retired from working on the beaches or simply cannot be cared for any longer by their owners.

Montacute House & Gardens
Built from golden ham stone this Elizabethan mansion has been used as the setting for many period dramas – well worth a visit.

The land of wild red deer & legendary home of Lorna Doone. Visit Tarr Steps – a stone-slab clapper bridge dating from prehistoric times which crosses the River Barle, and much much more.
