The village of Brent Knoll nestles at the south west base of The Knoll and is approximately 4 miles from the coast at Burnham-on-Sea and between Bridgwater to the south and Weston-super-Mare to the north.  Bristol International Airport is 16 miles.

Brent Knoll village was formerly named South Brent until 1883 when the name was changed to avoid rail passenger confusion with the village of South Brent in Devon.

Brent Knoll was known by the Romans as The Mount of Frogs and stands as an outcrop of the Mendip Hills, on the edge of the Somerset Levels.  It is some 137 meters high – and those who walk up it are rewarded with superb views of the Polden Hills to the south, Glastonbury Tor to the east, the Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge to the north east, the Bristol Channel and Wales to the west and the Quantock Hills to the south west.

The Knoll dates from the Jurassic times 300 million years ago when dinosaurs, primitive mammals and strange birds roamed the area.  A warm, shallow sea washed arounds its slopes thus giving its other name of “Frog Island”.
