The village of Crowcombe lies under the Quantock Hills in Somerset. It is approximately five miles from the Bristol Channel coastline and eight miles from Taunton. Crowcombe has a population of 500 and is a typical picturesque English village. The village was first documented under the name of 'Cerawicombe' by Aethulwulf of Wessex in 845 AD, when the local manor belonged to Glastonbury Abbey. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Crawcombe. In medieval times the village was the scene of many markets and fairs, being on an important junction of the road between Taunton and Bridgewater Bay. The medieval stone market cross still stands in the centre of the village. The village also boasts possibly the best preserved Tudor church house in Somerset. An unusual feature of the church is the well-carved and interesting bench-ends, seemingly pagan in their imagery, symbolising fertility. The Quantock Hills have been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are well worth a visit if you are in this area. You can stay at the Carew Inn in Crowcombe which has been described as 'the quintessential English Inn'. The Inn offers fine views of the local countryside from the Garden Terrace and some of its guest rooms.
