Visit Stogumber

Stogumber is a quintessential English village just over a mile away from the station.  With its higgeldy piggeldy painted houses, thatched roofs, local pub and shop, village hall and the stunning St Marys Church it is well worth a visit.

From the top of the Beacon Field, with picnic benches and its own community orchard, you have 360 degree views – over the Quantocks, Exmoor and the sea, and the beautiful rolling hills of Somerset.

From the centre of the village you can walk in any direction and be in beautiful Somerset countryside in minutes.  It is a haven of silence  and fresh air – with beautiful views and vistas at every turn.

The station is unique – being built on the side of a cliff with a sheer drop on the platform side..  The site of the old goods yard and shed are now a beautiful garden where you can partake of an excellent selection of tasty refreshments.
