You don't have to stay at Wall Eden Farm log cabin holidays to enjoy our beautiful tours and walks around Somerset... but you might prefer to!
 

Our central location means you can enjoy both seaside and countryside walks, without having to travel too far!  We're perfectly placed on the edge of the SOmerset Levels, close to Burnham on Sea, and Bridgewater.  Sea, countryside, towns, villages, rural life, farming and wildlife - all here on your holiday cottage doorstep!

There are a number of circular and coastal walks in Somerset, leading through many picture post card villages. Take a short walk from your cabin, a six minute walk along the river bank to one of our local pubs; the Bason Bridge Inn.

We are very close to Ham Wall, Shapwick Heath, world famous RSPB nature reserves, these are great walks, for families and wheelchair users, whilst watching birds and other wildlife. See our web page on bird watching or follow the link to www.rspb.org.uk/somerset

Glastonbury Torr

My favourite walks, to experiance  Somersets scenery, would take in Glastonbury Torr, Burrow Mump and  Deer leap. From each of these hill top vantage points you can take in the mystery of this once flooded landscape. Please read our web pages on history to understand why this such an important historical area.
