Kilve lies between the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the coast, which has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a welcoming village, with a beach celebrated for its fossils, wonderful and varied walks, cricket teams playing on a ground which must be one of the most beautifully situated in England, a pub and a well-stocked shop and post office. The Village Hall hosts all kinds of activities and entertainment, with something for everyone.

The Domesday Book listed Kilve back in 1086 as Clive, proably after the cliffs that dominate the coastline along this part of Somerset.

Over 925 years later, the population at Kilve stands at close to 400. Sitting in the designated Quantocks Area of Outstanding National Beauty and with a rich tapestry of interesting buildings, heritage and wildlife - Kilve's history has made it the place it is today.
