Kilve beach - Somerset Coast Festival polaroid image

Kilve is located at the northern end of the Quantocks, halfway between Minehead and Bridgwater. Kilve is a picturesque village where you will find the ruins of the old Chantry, founded in 1329 and once used for storing barrels of spirits smuggled in to Kilve Pill and The Hood Arms an historic 17th Century coaching inn.

Kilve Beach is mostly rocky, at low tide you’ll find lots of little rockpools to explore. There is a large grassy area alongside the beach to enjoy picnics. The beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a favourite spot for fossil hunters (removing fossils is prohibited).
