Mole Valley Ramblers

friendly walking in the heart of Surrey

Our Somerset Break

Ten members of Mole Valley Ramblers (including our Chairman for the first few days) went for a week to HF Selworthy in September. Holnicote House was originally the summer home of the Acland family, but is now owned by the National Trust.

There were the usual three levels of walks to choose from and, in spite of a very wet weather forecast for the whole week, luckily there was only one day on which we got really wet.

Selworthy 2017We enjoyed the lovely Somerset countryside and rugged coastline with views from Dunkery Beacon, the Quantock Hills and Exmoor although these weren’t always very clear because of low cloud. Our visit to Lynton/Lynmouth was postponed for a day until the high winds died down so that the coastal paths were safe.

Nearby places of interest which were visited included Dunster Village and Castle, Arlington Court which had a display of carriages and cars and the Bakelite Museum.

Good food, good exercise and good company as always.
