Mill Wood and Temple Opening for Summer Season 2021


The Temple and its pleasure grounds, Mill Wood, is open to the public on Sunday afternoons and bank holidays from 2 pm to 5 pm  from  the beginning of May until the end of September. Entrance is free, but donations can be made to the Quantock Hills AONB via their donation app.


Well behaved dogs are welcome on a short lead.    


The Temple is situated on the narrow lane that connects the village of Enmore and the village of Goathurst.  It is about half a mile outside Goathurst.  Do not attempt to access the Temple via the main-gated drive to Halswell House as this is a private residence that is not open to the public.


These villages are close to North Petherton and Bridgwater in the county of Somerset.  There are no buses and the only access is by very narrow, bendy lanes that are unsuitable for large vehicles. There is little or no parking in Goathurst, but there are two spaces in the lay-by at the Temple’s entrance.

Parking available in adjacent field at your own risk, please note steep entrance opening onto narrow lane.

Please note: Mill Wood is historic parkland, access is suitable on foot only, there are uneven and slippery surfaces, deep ponds and steep drops. Children should be closely supervised. We look forward to seeing you!
