Escape to welcoming Wellington

A small and friendly market town in rural Somerset, Wellington is the perfect place to get away from it all. It's nestled in a wide valley between the Brendon and Blackdown hills, and is surrounded on all sides by stunning countryside. It also has a wide range of independent shops, as well as a museum and a 1930s-style cinema.

Get a breath of fresh air

This part of Somerset is ideal for walking or cycling - the views are simply stunning, and nature lovers will appreciate the wide range of flora and fauna in the area. And if you work up a thirst, plenty of local farms are keen to show off their cider - with Sheppy's Cider Farm particularly worth a visit.

Take a trip to Taunton

Somerset's county town is just 7 miles away from Wellington, and has much to offer - especially for history buffs, who will find over 1,000 years of relatively well-documented history of the area. There's also the 10th century monastery and Taunton Castle. Shopping in the town is excellent, too.

Looking for accommodation in Wellington? Travelodge Wellington Somerset Hotel is most convenient, while Travelodge Tiverton Hotel and Travelodge Taunton Hotel, both on the M5, might suit drivers coming from from the south and north respectively.
