Isle of Wedmore

The Community Site

Wedmore Somerset England - is a beautiful and unique village. It is set in the Somerset Levels with the Mendip Hills for a backdrop.  Wedmore is close to the Cathedral City of Wells, the Bishop's Palace next door, with the nearby Glastonbury and the famous Glastonbury Music Festival in June.  Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip Hills (as you can see in the background of the above picture).

Why not stay in one of our many Wedmore accommodations?  From the moment you arrive you can really sense the traditional community spirit.

Wedmore has an excellent range of places to stay and eat and drink serving locally produced food and drink, making it a good place for a relaxing getaway.

If you require a more energetic visit, there are lots of walks allowing you to mingle with farm animals and wildlife. If you enjoy getting closer to the wildlife the Westhay Nature Reserve is close by.  This has proven to be popular with the BBC nature programmes and bird enthusiasts from around the UK and world!

If shopping is more your thing there is a good selection of craft shops and ladies boutiques including the famous Compton House of Fashion with many other fashion shops just a short walk away and a short drive gets you to Clarks Village which has over 90 popular shops.

There is a very friendly golf club with a challenging 18 golf course on the edge of the village which welcomes you with those stunning views of the Mendips and the valley below too.

The area is a photographer's delight whatever the season.

Wedmore makes a great base for exploring the surrounding history, landscape, habitat of birds and wildlife of both the Mendips and the Somerset Levels.  You can do this by bicycle, car and or on foot!

Wedmore Applause

How delightful, how could you want more?

I’m speaking of course, of little Wedmore


A gem, an oasis twixt Wells and Cheddar

Then there’s Glastonbury, a special treasure

 

Other choices are just a short drive away

Even if ‘Wedmorians’ can be lured away

 

The four of us two’Wedmorians’ and we

Roamed around with adventurous hiliarity.

 

We’d seen the towns with the tourist image

But happier, returning home to the village.

A past visitor - new to our village kindly provided the following poem:

 

 

 

Wedmore

  

It’s tucked away in a valley resplendent, self contained

Once off the M5 you wonder if you will ever arrive

And in giving up a stranger couldn’t be blamed

But patience has its own reward, a village that thrives.

 

Being off the beaten track can be such a bonus

When you are so close to a tourist trail

Friendly folk, without vendettas or onus

With a host of attractions which can’t fail.

 

Glastonbury with its wealth of history and fables

Wells too has spanned the years with a rich backcloth of tales

There’s the Cheddar Gorge and its majestic granite gables

It’s weather beaten spires that are constantly assailed

 

There are the ‘levels’ too which gave Somerset its name

Providing no hiding place in the battle of Sedgemoor,

adding history and gallantry to the county’s fame,

the last pitched battle in an English military war.
