Magical!

This is the most beautiful place you can imagine - the walk around the lake, dropping into the various buildings and grottoes, is breathtaking. All I can say is you really must visit.

Superb

A wonderful must in Dorset. Great gardens and interesting house. Well worth a visit.

Glastonbury Tor (8 ¾ miles)

Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.

Breathtaking (!)

It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!

The Strode Arms (1 ½ miles)

Housed within a beautiful Somerset stone building, the pretty exterior is in-keeping with the village surroundings and reflected in the duck pond out front.

The Three Horseshoes Inn (3 ¼ miles)

Set In the beautiful village of Batcombe, this 400 year old county pub uses fresh, local and seasonal produce to create a changing menu with both modern and traditional pub classic food. With a spacious bar and lovely dining room, this pub caters for all and is child and dog friendly.
