About Mary Coombes

Mark and I have lived in Knapp House which is next to Withy Cottage for over 15 years. We enjoy living in this beautiful and peaceful part of the country and this is where we plan to stay. We have thoroughly enjoyed renovating the cottage and transforming it into somewhere that our guests can really relax and enjoy the fabulous Somerset Levels on foot by bicycle or car.

I have worked as a Beauty Therapist for the past 30 years from my clinic in the small town of Castle Cary, just 25 minutes away.

We aim to offer the very best service you could hope for and as we live so close we are on always hand should you need us.

Why Mary Coombes chose Langport

We love the area because of its natural beauty with each season there is always something happening. Fantastic nature and wildlife surrounds us in an under stated way. Ideal for special interests such as walking, bird watching, fishing and visiting the many national trust houses and historic monuments nearby but yet not far from places such as historic Bath or even London is only a couple of hours away. Likewise the seaside town of West Bay is only a 28 miles away.

The cottage is very close to the ancient site of the Battle of Langport and there is so much history about the ancient folk that lived on the Levels who paddled in dug out canoes between the islands that are now the villages of Othery, Middlezoy and Weston Zoyland.

Lots to see explore and enjoy.

Further Details:

An ancient market town it retains much of its old world charm and is unique among the many ancient settlements in this remote unspoiled area known as the Somerset Levels & Moors.

Langport is situated on the banks of the River Parrett and this has played a significant part in its fascinating history. Its role as an important trading post in the 18th century is reflected in its fine architecture and in the historic wharfs and warehouses now being sympathetically restored. The attractive river area is now important for leisure and tourism.

Old Langport was situated on the hill at the eastern end of Bow Street, a strategically defensive position. The Celts and Romans came as did the Saxons who had a fortress here. By this time, Langport was an important river port fortified by the Normans. Once a borough with a portreeve, (a mayor or principle magistrate), a corporation and a Town Hall dating back to 1735, Langport has retained much of its medieval character. Many businesses were founded on the strength of the river and the sea but the coming of the railway in 1853 resulted in its rapid decline and the long tradition of the river trade eventually ceased.

The site of All Saints Church was the original settlement with the grave of Walter Bagshot is in the church yard. He became a famous economist, born in Langport, who helped form today's international monetary system. His forbears in the 18th Century established the Langport Bank of Stuckey & Co. connecting Langport to London's financial centre. Langport had had its own mint since Saxon times which brought great prosperity to the town for 150 years.

Langport is a small town of great contrasts between the tightly defined spaces within the town streets and the open green levels where in summer cattle graze on rich pastures. These meadows support many of the original marsh plants which in turn provide habitats for many varieties of plant and animal life. In winter the flooded moors are scenes of unprecedented beauty.
