About Wembdon

Wembdon is a vibrant rural village just a little over 1 mile from the market town of Bridgwater, and less than 15 miles from the county town of Taunton.  Wembdon is situated on the edge of the picturesque Quantock Hills, England’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Wembdon is one of the more exclusive areas near Bridgwater. It’s a lovely village with some great local people.  There is a proactive Parish Council and numerous community groups and associations who organise many substantial events throughout the year, most notably the Village Day and the Firework Display.  A village hall and new sports pitches were completed in May 2017 and are home to an extremely successful cricket club and junior and senior football clubs.

The Village has much to offer in the way of local amenities: a post office and shop, a country pub ‘The Cottage Inn‘, St George’s Church, a garage and MOT centre, a pre-school, and a primary school. A secondary school, swimming pool, Gym and sports complex are also situated alongside the village boundary with Chilton Trinity just over a mile from the village centre. Wembdon also has a large, well equipped park for children, allotments and numerous B&B’s and holiday lets. Wembdon is served by excellent transport links: bus stops within the village, with a bus & train station in Bridgwater only 1½ miles away. The M5 motorway J23 & J24 are only 5 miles away, and the village is well connected to the area’s cycleway routes.

Wembdon welcomes all visitors and new residents. We do hope that due to the many rural roads within the village all visitors and passers-by drive with care and consideration for our residents by keeping their speed low as much as possible.
