Great walks & cycling

There are some fabulous walks here in Hutton and surrounding areas, miles and miles in fact. Below find just a few suggestions;


Hutton – A great walk to get your bearings initially is to follow the public footpath at the entrance of our farm, just behind the Cluck n Collect Egg Hut. This path will take you along the farm perimeter and along to Canada Coombe. This is quite an incline but well worth it. The Coombe itself is a beautiful tranquil place with plenty of cover from the trees. From the top you can see for miles and even glimpse the Glastonbury Tor. The Coombe joins Roman Road, which will link you to Bleadon Village with 3 pubs – spaced out. The Queens Arms, Catherine’s Inn & The Anchor.  

At Roman Road there are endless walks – simply follow the signs. You are in Apple country! The Bleadon Golf Course is on Roman Road and there is a public footpath that cuts down to Hutton Village. (Steep in parts) 

Brean Down

Brean Down is an excellent walk – you can even get there via the cycle path from Uphill, or drive. From here you can enjoy the Bristol Channel & watch the tankers sail into Bristol Avonmouth. There is a fortress at the end. Why not take a picnic and enjoy the rare Butterflies & Fauna.


It is soft, flat, golden-coloured sand. This means that, unlike pebble beaches, it’s very kind on dog paws. 

  • It goes on for a long way! In fact, Brean beach has seven miles of glorious golden sands!
  • In the warmer months when the sea is calmer, it’s great for paddling and splashing around in, something that your dog can enjoy too!

Dogs are allowed on the beach at Brean all year round!

Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar Gorge is a hive of activity whether rambling/ambling or abseiling.  Here you can admire the Gorge visit the Caves and the many Tea Houses & Pubs. Fill up on Cream Teas & such like. Check out The Lion Rock (reservations’s recommended, my fav)

There is a great walk from Velvet Bottom near Charterhouse/Priddy which meanders down through the hills through moss-covered stone walling tracks. From here cross over the road and up the other side of the Gorge carry on until you reach the top of Jacobs Ladder – here the descent to the village is steep where you can grab some lunch, Ice creams & famous cheeses, etc. Pop in the Tea Houses you deserve it. This walk is for the energetic and those not afraid of heights. Lion Rock Tea Rooms & many more.


Beaches – The main beach of Weston super Mare is 2.5 miles away. In the summer months, May-Oct the area for the dogs is from Uphill to the length of the Sand Dunes (Royal Sands) Then the right-hand side of the Pier to Knightstone. Beaches at Sandbay are Dog friendly all year round and a lot less crowded – from here you can climb Sandpoint National Trust Land and look over to Wales.

A great place to start is from Uphill where you can park in the marina or on the beach.  You will find the Wharf café here and The Ship Pub (Oldest pub in Weston super Mare) & The Dolphin. There are public loos at Uphill prior to beach.

Weston Woods

Weston Woods – a fabulous walk head to Worlebury and park up. Great nature trails are to be found and a fabulous challenging BMX track cut into the hillside on the Toll Road for you bikers. Fabulous to get out of the sun or rain.

Strawberry Line


Strawberry Line – This is a lovely gentle walk/ride where you can join from many points.  Some lovely scenery here around Winscombe & Sandford – why not pop into Thatcher’s Own Pub The Railway for a glass of Cider?
