The Lamb and Flag is just a five minute walk and serves excellent food and is dog friendly There are two other pubs within two miles and the York Inn at Churchinford can be reached within a ten minute drive. All serve good food at affordable prices and have excellent reviews and are dog friendly! There is a shop within two miles. The village of Blagdon Hill is situated between Taunton and Wellington. Taunton is the county town of Somerset. We do welcome one dog. However we do have three cats but this does not seem to cause a problem! We also own a horse and chickens.
