WALK: CREECH HILL Half-day countryside walk starting in Bruton (about 15km) with beautiful views towards the imposing King Alfred's Tower on the Stourhead Estate - an iconic image of the Somerset Levels. This circular walk takes in the sights of Bruton and heads into the surrounding lush farmlands, taking you up to the local high spot of Creech Hill which is notable for a univallate Iron Age hill fort. It features in the book 'England's 100 Best Views' and features Iron Age forts, a Roman temple and ancient woodlands. Coming back, you are treated to more local delights and an enchanting glimpse of Glastonbury Tor. WALK: KING ALFRED'S TOWER, BREWHAM King Alfred's Tower is a 160ft tall folly tower marking the spot where King Alfred rallied the forces of Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, before his decisive defeat at the Battle of Edington in 878AD. It was erected in the mid-18th century by banker Henry H oare II, then owner of the Stourhead estate, and dominates the landscape in the Cranbourne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In his book 'England's 100 Best Views', the National Trust describes the vista from Creech Hill towards Stourhead as the best view of the Somerset Levels, 'Creech Hill stands seven miles to the north and is closer to the Levels. It looks up to Stourhead behind it, and looks across to Cadbury to the left. 'It directly overlooks the golden limestone town of Bruton, deep in the Brue valley and with only its church and dovecot visible from a distance.' GLASTONBURY Glastonbury Festival (8 miles away) takes place every June and Bruton makes an excellent pit-stop for commuting to the event.More

About the neighbourhood
BRUTON is a chocolate-box medieval town and friendly village (circa 3000 residents) which has been sprinkled with stardust and celebrity residents in recent times (Nicholas Cage / Stella McCartney / Andrea Corr / Pearl Lowe / Mariella Frostrup / Kevin McCloud – to name a few!). There are traditional pubs and great restaurants including Truffles (across the road), At The Chapel (5 mins walk up the High Street), Roth Bar & Restaurant (linked with Hauser & Wirth – 15 mins walk through country fields) and Matt’s Kitchen (in his home). There is also a Chinese Takeaway across the road and Budgens next door if you fancy a pizza and bottle of wine on the sofa!
Getting around
The main draw to the village is Hauser & Wirth Gallery showcasing contemporary art in a quirky setting. Entry is FREE. The countryside is beautiful. If you like walking don't miss a hike to the Dovecote for magnificent views across Bruton. Other walks include Creech Hill (the highest point in South-East Somerset), Dunkery Hill (the highest point in Somerset), King Alfred's Tower, Stourhead Ornamental Gardens, Cadbury Castle and Glastonbury Tor. DAY TRIPS *Shepton Mallet (see Mulberry’s factory outlet shop ladies) *Frome (10 miles – home to Babington House which offers half-price spa treatments at the Cowshed every Monday!) *Bath (20 miles) *Glastonbury (17 miles) *Sherborne *Wells (10 miles) * Wookey Hole *Stonehenge (30 miles)
