Alfoxton Park is a lovely Queen Anne period house. Once the Somerset home of Poet William Wordsworth.

Perfectly set in a hollow on the lower slopes of the Quantock Hills, the present house was rebuilt in 1710 after the previous building was destroyed in a fire. It has kept much of the style of the period with elegant exterior and classically styled rooms with some fine plasterwork and panelling. Set in 50 tranquil acres of it's own grounds with easy access to the lovely Quantock Hills it provides excellent walking opportunities, fantastic views over the Channel to the Welsh Coast and a huge wealth and diversity of wildlife including Wild Red Deer which roam in our park. The most recorded period in Alfoxton's history was the time William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy lived here and their great friend and fellow poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge lived in a village nearby. Inspired by the surrounding countryside William Wordworth wrote some of his finest works,including the Lyrical Ballads, while living here and also inspired on their walks Coleridge composed his now famous Rime of the Ancient Mariner the first reading of which he gave in the room that is now the Bar. Today Alfoxton Park is a comfortable hotel retaining much of the original charachter and charm, and offering good food and wine in a peaceful, relaxed friendly atmosphere with the vegetables and fruit used in the cooking and flowers for the house coming from our own Kitchen Garden. We also bake our own bread and the soups, pates, puddings, jam and marmalade are all made here adding to the enjoyment of the meals. Although only half an hour from the motorway, Alfoxton provides a haven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
