Luxury B&B accommodation around Yeovil
Yeovil is South Somerset's main centre and is a modern, bustling town famously the home of Westland Helicopters and Yeovil Town Football Club - the Glovers, a reference to the past glove making industry that supported the town in the 1800s. Yeovil is an old Anglo-Saxon name derived from the Celtic word for "forked river". The River Yeo flows around the east of the town, and the centre has a wide choice of high street stores, cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs.
There is a good range of accommodation available including hotels, bed and breakfasts and guest houses. Leafy suburbs on the outskirts of the town are where to find good quality bed and breakfast accommodation in beautiful period town houses. Find out about the town's history at the Yeovil Heritage and Visitor Centre which is a major tourist information point for the South Somerset region. The Heritage Centre also displays many ancient artefacts unearthed in the local area, including Roman finds dating from the Roman occupation and various industrial related items.
The Octagon Theatre hosts a packed programme of productions including comedy, music and drama. The Bar and Cafe Bar are perfect for per-theatre drinks and dining. The Swan is a smaller affair and was built when the Yeovil Dramatic Society decided to build their own theatre from an old pub. The Society put on six performances a year and The Swan is also used by visiting performers.
Yeovil Country Park Penn Hill
Just along from the Octagon Theatre you can access Yeovil Country Park which is made up of Goldenstones, Valley Garden of Ninesprings, the old Yeovil to Taunton Railway Line, Summerhouse and Wyndham Hills. This accessible green space is just five minutes from the town centre. There is also a cycleway along the old Yeovil to Taunton Railway Line. The park features wooded hillsides, wetland habitats, waterfalls and grassland. It is surprising to find that so near the town is one of Somerset's largest colonies of water vole. There are often guided walks organised by the Ranger Service - you can find out more from the Yeovil Heritage & Visitor Information Centre.
Yeovil Golf Club
Yeovil Golf Club has two golf courses: the 18 hole Old Course and the 9 hole Newton Course. It also has a twenty bay floodlit driving range with automated power tees. The courses are on the western side of Yeovil town centre. Visitors are welcome and the club offers Golf Day Packages for Societies.
