The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

Crown Inn (¼ mile)

A local village pub in a Listed 17th Century building, near to Glastonbury and featuring music and specialty food nights.

Nearest beach

Burnham-on-Sea Beach (19 miles)

Boasting England's shortest pier, this forms part of the seven-mile stretch of sand between Burnham-on-Sea and Brean. All that you'd expect from a classic British seaside resort beach, complete with donkey rides and entertainment for the kids in summer, plus all facilities nearby.

Nearest walk

West Compton & North Wootton from Pilton (¼ mile)

A super walk starting from the picturesque village of Pilton. The footpath follows the southern edge of the Mendip Hills and is approximately seven and a half miles long with 750 feet of ascent. Please be aware that Glastonbury Festival usually takes place towards the end of June and at this time all the local footpaths are closed.

Nearest town

Shepton Mallet (2 ¼ miles)

This ancient market town had woolly beginnings (Shepton meaning 'sheep enclosure'), the medieval wool trade giving way to the cider production it is known for today. Lots of historic architecture remains and the Shepton Mallet Festival takes to the streets once a year.

Also nearby

Glastonbury Tor (5 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 Royal Bath and West Show (2 ½ miles)

On the first weekend of June, the country's biggest rural festival takes place. And it's not just livestock. See their Web site for this event and other all year round events.

The Bishop's Palace and Gardens (4 miles)

A fantastic 13th Century building with 14 acres of exquisite, tranquil gardens.

Stourhead (13 miles)

World famous landscaped gardens with a magnificent lake as centrepiece. Certainly worth a visit to see the classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare, exotic trees. Why not combine a walk around the garden with a visit to the house, restaurant and shop with opening time information available on their Web site.

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.

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

Whilst in the area why not call in for a wide range of hand made foods, meats and local produce. There is also a Coffee Den which sounds like a great place for a quick bite to eat!
