The Somerset Levels, Moors & Marshes


The diverse landscape includes wooded hills and valleys - one of the lowest and flattest places in the UK and an important habitat.

The perfect place for a stroll through beautiful countryside to enjoy wildlife and nature. 

There are beautiful areas of orchards, woods, withy beds and medieval churches crossed by a complex network of rhynes and ditches.  The remoteness of the area provides an ideal atmosphere for nature lovers, cyclists and walkers.

The Levels are perfect for cycling and The Avalon Marshes has some great heritage routes to explore.  Download their heritage cycle routes here

Today the area is mostly grassland and arable with willow grown commercially; do take a visit to the Willows and Wetlands Visitor Centre where the Coate family has thoughtfully put together displays and collections to tell the fascinating story of willow. 

With its fabulously rich wildlife it enjoys special protection and supports a number of RSPB reserves; for keen birdwatchers and naturalists we have put together a great itinerary World class Birdwatching. Download your free copy here
