If you have ever watched Bryan Adams video for Everything I Do which was featured in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves you might know that it spent 16 consecutive weeks at number one in the UK singles chart. What you may not know is that the music video was partly filmed in and around Kilve in Somerset.
Kilve can be found in the Quantock Hills in Somerset. The Quantocks are just absolutely stunning and I remember spending many a Sunday afternoon walking around and exploring the Quantocks with my parents and brother as a child.
The village of Kilve is made up of three settlements including an old Chantry, founded in 1329 and once used for storing barrels of spirits smuggled in to Kilve Pill. There is a stunning beach which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its spectacular rock formations and fossils, including ammonites and reptile remains.
There isn’t a sandy beach at Kilve but it is a really popular spot for families and walkers. The rock pools are great fun, particularly if you are trying to walk over the rocks without falling in and the rock pools can be full of water depending on the tides and the rocks a bit tricky to navigate!
Kilve is also a great spot to sit and watch the sun go down, with spectacular sunsets as well as stunning views out to sea and across to Wales.
