Between the Brendon and Blackdown Hills in Somerset, Wellington is a brisk town with the usual mix of well known and independent shops, a choice of places to eat and a regular Farmer’s Market when the streets are abuzz with folk piling high their baskets with all manner of local goodies. It’s a nice little town to browse round actually; go and have a pub lunch at The Green Dragon or afternoon tea at Odette’s Tea Room where the style is rustic with a bit of French chic and out the back there’s a pretty garden you can sit in if the sun has come out to play. In the evening you can come back into town and catch the latest screening at the 1930’s Art-Deco style cinema.
Something you can’t help noticing just outside the town is the 175ft high Wellington Monument, erected as a lasting tribute to the Duke of Wellington’s victory at the Battle of Waterloo. Stroll up there through the beech woods; the views are incredible.
