The village of about 400 people is at the foot of the Quantocks and includes several hamlets and isolated farms up hill and down valleys to the Doniford stream. There are some small businesses, a church primary school, a thriving pub and a community shop with surviving Post Office.
The church is a medieval gem – featuring in ‘Britain’s Thousand Best Churches’ and its carved bench ends draw many tourists.
Opposite the church stands medieval Church House, one of only two remaining in Somerset, newly refurbished and now used as an exhibition and small function centre. Church House and the 18th century Crowcombe Court behind the church are frequently used as wedding and reception venues.
