Welcome to The Hood Arms on The Quantocks

The Hood Arms is an historic coaching inn situated in the village of Kilve on the edge of the Quantock Hills. The inn is steeped in history, being on the route of the Coleridge Way and close to the Jurassic coastline and beaches of Somerset, halfway between Bridgwater and Minehead and very accessible for Taunton, or as a base to explore Exmoor. Our four star rated accommodation is superbly appointed and features a number of four poster king rooms, doubles and twins. Our menu features fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce and we have a different Specials board every day.

Our 2015 Christmas Party menu is now available!
Please see our Christmas page for details.

For our business guests, we are a short drive along the coast from the new Hinkley Point C development and can provide you with a comfortable home from home whilst you are working in the area.



All individually styled & furnished, many with fire places and 4 poster beds our bedrooms offer comfort and charm.
