Walk at Fyne Court

The gardens are extensive and are perfect for a walk on a summer’s day. You can seek out Castle Folly, see where Andrew Crosse did his experiments and explore the wild gardens. There are plenty of paths of varying terrain so it doesn’t matter if you want a nice stroll followed by a cup of tea with your date, or if you want to ramble through the woods and climb trees. From here you can also get to the Wellington Monument. Take a walk to the highest point of the Blackdown Hills for amazing views of the area. Image via PussyCatVictor on Flickr.

Keep an eye on the website and local tourist information as there are often events on that could mean being wined and dined as you travel, or perhaps getting a bit of an insight into the history of the railway.
The Bishops Lydeard station, four miles from Taunton, also has a railway museum which contains a working model railway. There’s also the Signalbox shop, which sells all sorts of model railway equipment for anyone who wants to build their own.
