About Pawlett

Pawlett is an attractive river village on the banks of the estuary of the River Parrett. It is a spacious village with a delightful mix of properties interspersed amongst leafy lanes.

A feature of the village is the historic Norman church dedicated to St. John, this lies amidst a peaceful churchyard where visitors can see many old graves and tombstones, as well as some beautiful mature trees. The atmosphere of the church is very serene with noted treasures from the past. St.John's can be found next to the Village Hall and play area. There is also an interesting grey stone Methodist Chapel of 1855, this can be found close to the top of Chapel Road. River Road is attractive and as its name suggests, this leads right down to the waters of the Parrett.

This is a very popular residential area of Somerset, it is but a short distance away from bustling Bridgewater, and is surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside.

Interestingly, this village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and in the 12th century the Pawlett Hams, running west of the village were known as being the richest 2000 acres in England.

With pleasant inns to visit, the river banks for fishing, and easy access to Bridgewater Bay, pretty Pawlett makes an ideal choice as a base for exploring the glorious Quantock Hills, the seaside resort of Minehead and a host of picturesque Somerset town's and villages.
