As a playful young pup, I love going on walks in the local area. My mum, Pamela, is a keen walker and takes pride in finding a variety of walks for me. Details of these can also be found in our Reception area.
Sparkford woods Millennium Copse (accessed direct from Park - 1/4 mile)
One of my favourite walks, going through the Sparkford woodlands and the Milennium Copse. This walk presents great views of Cadbury Hillfort and can be extended or shortened depending on how far you and your owner wish to go.
Cherry Pie Lane (accessed direct from Park - 1/4 mile)
This great, short walk can be accessed through the village or across the train tracks and is a lovely flat, enclosed field for exercising. It can easily be combined with the Milennium Copse for a longer walk, encompassing Sparkford village.
Hazlegrove grounds (accessed direct from Park - 400m)
The grounds of Hazlegrove house can be accessed via the main entrance at the Hazlegove roundabout or by crossing the A303. A lovely woodland terrain where you can go blackberry picking in the autumn.
South Barrow lane (accessed direct from Park - 1/4 mile)
Public footpaths lead from Sparkford to South Barrow. Along small country lanes, the village is a few miles' walk and is an adaptable walk to feature pubs and easily accessed nearby villages.
Queen Camel village shop (1 mile walk)
For a few supplies, the village shop offers local produce, newspapers and a Post Office. Queen Camel can be accessed via fields or a pavemented roadside walk.
The Leland Trail (1 mile)
Cadbury Hillfort, South Cadbury (2 miles walk or drive)
A more challenging walk around the remains of King Arthur's Camelot, providing fantastic views of Somerset and Dorset. See our page on King Arthur's Camelot for more details.
Corton Ridge (4 miles)
Ninesprings, Yeovil (7 miles)
Ham Hill, Stoke sub Hamdon (10 miles)
A lovely walk around a local stone quarry, there are views all across South Somerset visible from the highest points. We also recommend the Prince of Wales pub for a drink.
Glastonbury Tor (15 miles)
Glastonbury Tor welcomes well behaved dogs and offers a trolley service for older dogs who may not otherwise reach the top.
North Dorset Trailway (15 miles)
