Many great local pubs are within walking distance; please refer to the information available at the hub to see menus and locations of these gastro delights. The Hunters Rest is a particular nice walk along the old disused railway track.
We have several supermarkets and co-ops within a 5-15 minute drive, as well as the famous Book barn in Farrington Gurney, which is Europe’s largest second hand book shop and serves fantastic vegetarian food within its café. Farrington farm shop is also just down the road, which houses a brilliant farmers market as well as an indoor play area for children. The soap bar café and shop is situated just at the top of the local village of Clutton and has amazing coffee and freshly homemade cakes available.
Check out Chew Valley Lake (10 minutes’ drive) if you’re into birdwatching and fishing, or attempt to get a glimpse of some of the UK’s native four-legged animals at the Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park (20 minutes).
For city slicking once you’ve ticked off walks and cycle rides through the Combe Down Tunnel (25 minutes), make a beeline for Bristol and see the cathedral and zoo, making sure to stop off at the Brunel-designed Clifton Suspension Bridge and SS Great Britain ship as well (25 minutes).
Bath’s another unmissable urban destination – head to this spot for the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge (half an hour), then wander
around Wells, a tiny city home to a cracking cathedral (30 minutes) and the gateway to the Wookey Hole Caves.
If you’re into all things bohemian, drop by Glastonbury too and browse the offbeat boutiques before taking a walk up to Glastonbury Tor for fab views over the countryside (45 minutes).
