North Perrott is a village and civil parish in the South Somerset district of the English county of Somerset. The name Perrott comes from the River Parrett and there is evidence of Roman and Iron Age settlements in the village. The Church of St Martin dates from the 12th century and has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building. To the east of the village is Whitevine Meadows which consists of a nationally rare type of neutral grassland together with adjoining areas of scrub and ancient woodland. The Whitevine meadow is unusual in being one of only three British localities where the grass Gaudinia fragilis is a prominent and established component of the sward. The scrub provides nest sites for several species of bird, including nightingale. Clearings within the scrub support a mixed flora with saw-wort, yellow-wort and autumn gentian. These sheltered glades provide favourable climatic conditions for butterflies including marbled white and silver-washed fritillary. There is parking at the house for your convenience. If transport needs to be provided from an airport then we can help you to arrange this. There is a continental breakfast offered each morning and a cooked breakfast on request.
