South Somerset Cycle Route - Ilminster to Yeovil
This route follows part of the South Somerset Cycle route- an 80 mile ride around this beautiful part of the country.
Much of the South Somerset Cycle route is coincident with the National Cycle Network and is therefore covered by other routes on the site. This section however, runs from Ilminster to Yeovil exclusivley on the SSC.
You start in Ilminster and head east on a series of country lanes to the train station at Yeovil Junction. The route passes a a number of pretty villages including Hinton St George, West Chinnock and Stoke Sub Hamdon. There is also a small detour which takes you to the attractive town of Crewkerne with its 15 century church and interesting historic buildings.
Highlights on the route include the beautiful Ham Hill Country Park where you can enjoy fabulous views of Somerset and beyond. Also of interest is the nearby Elizabethan stone-built house at Montacute. This 16th century home has splendid park and gardens and a fine gallery.
