Things to do while at Thornhills Farm
Somerset Levels and Moors
Dominated by Burrow Mump, a natural hill topped by a ruined uncompleted church, the Somerset Levels are one of the most important inland wetlands in Britain if not the world. The area plays host to a diverse range of wading birds and wildfowl and is home to the RSPB reserve near Fivehead and the newly opened reserve at Greinton, just 1 mile up the road. Visit the Willows and Wetlands Centre at Stoke St Gregory and learn about the cultivation of ‘withies’ and the traditional industry of weaving and hurdle making.
The Vale of Taunton Deane
Is nestled between the Blackdown, Quantock and Brendan Hills and the landscape is that of rich agricultural land, patchwork fields interspersed with soaring church towers, woodlands, orchards and traditional villages offering the best of Somerset welcomes. The 45 mile West Deane Walk takes in the delights of the vale at its best.
