Visit the village of Mells:

Mells is famous for its lovely architecture, ancient streets and dramatic location. There are many things to do in Mells – visit the ancient church and churchyard, enjoy the walled garden and country walks and, of course, relax in the village Café or the newly refurbished Talbot Inn.

History is what underpins all of this and we are fortunate to have a fascinating history of the village and the Horner and Asquith family (who have lived in the Manor House in its various forms since the 16th century)  written for this site by the current Earl of Oxford and Asquith, Raymond Oxford….

Visit the Fleet Air Arm Museum:

Representing the Royal Navy In the Air. With four exhibition halls, over ninety aircraft and over 2 million records and 30 thousand artefacts the Museum is Europe's largest naval aviation Museum. In addition it houses the first British Concorde which you can go on board, view the cockpit and visit the award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience.

Visit the Wookey Hole Caves: 

A network of limestone caves in Somerset, thick with stalactites and stalagmites and rich in stories of yore, most famously of a witch who was turned to stone. The guided tour of the caves is only part of the experience. Wookey encompasses 20 exhibits and activities, including a clown museum – boasting the largest collection of painted clown eggs and circus shows. Includes the Wookey witch – a job that attracted 500 applicants when advertised in 2013.
