Walking Breaks Somerset

Our luxury holiday properties in Somerset are the ideal bases for a well planned walking holiday or just for those who like to stretch their legs most days; there are several designated walking trails and a plethora of footpaths and bridleways for walks of verying lengths. You're guaranteed to be out in some of the most beautiful and diverse scenery, from steep wooded hillsides to gently undulating slopes, from spectacular windswept clifftops to wide open fields and winding lanes.  

You'll find footpaths galore in the Blackdown Hills, and plenty of welcoming village pubs for refreshments. Take a tranquil stroll around Otterhead Lakes, followed by lunch at the Holman Clavel, or pick up a trail at Staple Hill or Castle Neroche and slip down to the Greyhound at Staplefitzpaine when you've finished; walk the lush pastures of the Culm Valley, ending up at the Culm Valley Inn for a pint, and for fantastic views Culm Beacon and  Wellington Monument  are hard to beat.

Get out into the glorious Quantock Hills and climb one of the steep wooded combes to reach the bracken clad heaths with views that stretch across the Bristol Channel to Wales. Holford Combe or Hodders Combe are gorgeous, and handy for the Plough Inn; pick up part of the West Somerset Coast Path along the dramatic cliffs, taking in Kilve and East Quantoxhead, or walk up to the top of Cothelstone Hill or Wills Neck, the highest hill on the Quantocks.The Carew Arms in Crowcombe and the Blue Ball Inn at Triscombe are great pub stops on your way back.

Exmoor National Park  is superb walking country, with heather topped moors where wild ponies feed, dense oak woodland and rushing river valleys. Walk in the footsteps of Lorna Doone from Porlock to Culbone Church, follow the path along the banks of the River Barle to Tarr Steps and rest for lunch at Tarr Farm Inn just over the old clapper bridge, or along the East Lyne River to Watersmeet where there's a charming tea garden, and don't miss Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor.

Explore the beautiful wetlands of the Somerset Levels; you'll find old drover’s paths and rhynes (pronounced REENS) lined with ancient pollarded willows and you can really get off the beaten track. If you get onto the Parrett Trail you can visit the ruins of Mulcheney Abbey and the NT Priest's House, then continue on the trail into Langport for some tasty fare at Kitchen. Go up to the ruined church on Burrow Mump, and do a circular walk through the fields and back to the King Alfred Inn; stroll along the banks of the River Tone to the Bird in Hand at North Curry, and don't forget Glastonbury Tor .

If you venture over to the Mendip Hills you'll find rugged plateaus, deep gorges, and the contrasting softer inclines of the Chew Valley; hike along the Mendip Way or the Butcombe Trail, or plan a walk to take in Cheddar Gorge or the smaller nature reserve of Ebbor Gorge. Again, there's no shortage of quaint watering holes – the Crown Inn at Churchill, The Queen Victoria at Priddy, or the Queens Arms at Bleadon are all worth stopping at.

Lace up those walking boots, pack your practical clothing and come on down to Somerset; check out our large group holiday accommodation below, and if there's anything you'd like to know, just call us on 01823 665500.
