Local walks around holiday accommodation, Somersetrm.
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
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.
Brent Knowle is a short hill climb to the summit, where a roman fort once stood, views across the Somerset Levels and Severn Estuary are worth the climb
Walks along the Quantock Hills offer fantastic veiws across the Severn Estuary. Walks from Lilstock to Kilve of about 3 miles ends with a cream tea renowned for it idylic setting and outstanding cream tea's.
Cheddar Caves walk is a circular walk skirting the famous, Cheddar Gorge, ending at Jacob's Ladder before the assent, down in to Cheddar Valley and village. Views include the Gorge and Brent Knowle. This is a challenging 2 hour walk with outstanding views.Andrew & Rhi took a wonderful walk up Brent Knowle Hill and beyond!
