This short walk starts from The Kingsdon Inn, in the sleepy Somerset village of Kingsdon. For most of the route there is level walking and paths are generally good. Wayfinding is very easy. Although there are some broad, distant views reaching as far as Alfred's Tower at Stourhead (National Trust) in Wiltshire, over fifteen miles away, there is just one gentle descent and a correspondingly gentle ascent.

The Kingsdon Inn serves good food and the walk could alternatively be started at Waymark 8, in Charlton Adam, to give an opportunity to work up an appetite before reaching the pub. Lyte's Cary Manor National Trust property (ST 533267) is just under a mile away from Kingsdon, along a quiet lane; a visit could easily be combined with the walk.

7/04/10 WW comes up trumps again! Found this walk by searching on the postcode for the Travelodge at Poddimore where we had to spend a couple of nights. Such a lovely early morning walk to stretch our legs before setting off on a long drive home.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Lots of gorgeous countryside. There are a few parts where dogs must be kept on leads due to pheasant breeding/shooting etc which Alfie our dog found frustrating but a small price to pay. Juliet Curtis and family
