Glastonbury Tor (15 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!

Burrington Combe (3 miles)

Climb the steep side of the gorge to reach the top which looks out over the stunning heathland. There are nurmerous caves to explore throughout this wooded walk.

Mr Rybacki July 2016

An excellent walk on the hills for people and dogs for a view over the Somerset countryside. Take water for your dog if the day is warm as it there is little shade on the way up and it can get hot.

The Strawberry Line (5 ¾ miles)

A community project has been set up to develop the old railway line from Clevedon to Cranmore. At the moment only the section from Yatton to Cheddar is fully operational with other sections in the planning stages. Most of the route is off road with a lovely cafe at Yatton.

Strawberry Line Cycle Trail

Beautiful mainly off road route from Cheddar to Yatton - about 9 miles one way so 18 return. We cycled from Cherry May farm so about a 40 mile round trip. The Strawberry line cafe at Yatton Station is wonderful for lunch.

The Bishop's Palace and Gardens (11 miles)

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