The Coleridge Way in Somerset was opened in April 2005. The Coleridge Way is 36 miles long reaching from Nether Stowey, one time home of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to Porlock.

The route takes in some of the county's most beautiful landscape, passing from the Quantocks (England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), through the little known Brendon Hills and into Exmoor National Park.

Coleridge was a passionate walker and once walked from Nether Stowey to Porlock in a day. To enjoy the countryside and villages we would suggest that the Coleridge Way be walked in 3 or 4 days.
