Welcome to Highbridge

With its long history as a market town, Highbridge developed around its bridge over the river Brue in north Somerset, serving as a commerce hub for many communities in the area. Over time, the market became known for Caerphilly cheese, an invention of dairies in the area. A small, rustic community that retains many historic shops, restaurants and pubs, Highbridge is just one of many picturesque staples of Somerset.

Taunton Deane - a bucolic corner of Somerset

Taunton Deane is the county town of Somerset, where you’ll find all the quintessential elements that put the county on the map. Here, you can lose yourself in the rolling, cattle-flecked meadows of the Somerset levels, the windswept grass of the Quantock Hills, and the breathtaking Blackdowns with their shroud of ancient forest just a stone’s throw away. With many friendly communities dotted throughout the town’s surrounding area, Taunton Deane is the perfect place to get a taste of the famous county of Somerset.

Unwind at Hestercombe Gardens

A short drive north of Highbridge, Hestercombe Gardens is the home of 300 years of landscape design contained within one incredible estate. Its Georgian Landscape Garden has gorgeous lakeside paths, a Victorian terrace with sweeping views of the estate, and an Edwardian Formal Garden that’s more or less frozen in time. Its Stables Café is great for delectable home-cooked lunches and popular Sunday roasts.
