Popular with ramblers and riders, like so many places in this region, Aisholt is a small village nestling in a valley of the Quantock Hills. It is overlooked by the highest point in the Quantocks, Will’s Neck, at 1260ft. The poet Sir Henry Newbolt (1862-1938) lived here and another famous poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, greatly admired the locale. Just beyond the village are Hawkridge Reservoir and Aisholt Common.
