Holywell Lake is a tiny village in Somerset, on a stream which soon runs down to feed the nearby River Tone. The village is just west of Wellington and a step north of the A38 trunk road out of Taunton.

The village is named after the ancient well here, one of the many reputed a holy well in the Middle Ages.

Holywell Lake is one of the Thankful Villages; those few places which suffered no casualties amongst their men in the First World War.
