“ Sweet and cosy rustic bedrooms, Jacobean panelling and delicious organic food on your plate. Huntstile is an organic dream.

Hopes dashed we decided to seek solace in food and returned to a pub we'd seen on the way. The pub was the Rising Sun - www.risingsuninn.info - at West Bagborough; a small village nestled at the foot of the Quantocks. The pub had a welcoming look from the outside and on the inside the feeling was maintained with a comfortable bar area and separate dining area. Early on a Monday evening we weren't the only customers and I would think that to eat on a weekend booking is a must. The pub would fit in with description of a "Gastropub" and the prices reflected this. The food we had would justify this tag as it was tasty and well presented. My wife's dietary needs were catered for without complaint. Should we ever be in the area again we both agreed we would return.
We navigated the now dark and twisty Somerset country lanes back to Huntstile and settled in to our vast room for a good night's sleep. Breakfast at the Huntstile is served in a small separate building that was probably once used as a grain store. Breakfast was prepared to order by an attentive cook and I had no complaints.

Except for a drive through Ross-on-Wye (must return one day) our grand tour was over except for the slog back home. In fulfilling a wish we'd traveled nearly 900 miles in just over 75 hours of sightseeing and visiting. I enjoyed every mile and minute.
