The Local Area Guide to Living in Ashcott

Ashcott is a village and Civil Parish in the heart of Somerset, located in the Sedgemoor area, and was once part of the Hundred Whitely. Ashcott’s name derives from the eastern part of the Polden Hills, which are a collection of hills that extend for 10 miles, parallel to the Somerset Levels. Earliest signs of inhabitants on the Polden Hills show that there were Mesolithic settlements here, which dates back to before 3000 BC. A Neolithic hurdle trackway was also discovered in Ashcott Heath, which extended into the island of Meare.

The Grade II* listed building, All Saints Church, is the principle church of the region, tracing back to the 15th century. It is also part of a group of 5 other churches, Shapwick, Burtle, Catcott, Edington and Childon. Ashcott has had a tradition of hosting a beer festival for the past 16 years, which takes place right after the Glastonbury Festival, drawing in large numbers each year. The Ashcott Beer Festival is a fantastic get together of people – locals and visitors alike, and raises money to improve children’s facilities in the area.
