Monkscider House was originally a group of cottages in Washford Farm. The farm dates back to at least 1575 - according to records in Williton library. At the end of the 19th Century, the cottages were burnt out, and replaced with the storehouse, cider press and forge - knocking the cottages into one building. Today it is owned by the Chadwick family who welcome you to their beautiful home.

The village of Washford has a number of attractions to suit a wide variety of tastes, from a Mediaeval Abbey to a kid's adventure park - a steam railway museum, and a trout farm. There is also a craft centre, a cider farm - and for those with rather longer visiting arrangements to be made - a green burial site! And that's just Washford. It is also a jumping off ground for exploring Exmoor, and is just down the road from Watchet, and its fascinating history, fossil collecting and sea-fishing - and just a couple of miles away from Dunster Castle. Within a couple of miles we have Williton with its' pottery and Bakelite museum, Halsway Manor, the home of 'olde English country musick', and art galleries run by local artists and sculptors. The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen is a 'definite must' if you visit Dunster. Fly-fishermen often visit this area to fish Clatworthy Reservoir - a couple of miles away. Now, even closer than that there are trout ponds - at Coombe Sydenham, a fascinating Elizabethen Manor House. Finally, St Audries, a mere three miles away, hosts a fabulous wedding centre, located in the grounds of an old girls school (with spectacular gardens, and views of the Severn Estuary. Wedding guests are catered for at Monk Cider House, whatever time you may stagger home from the reception.
