Bobs Field is situated between Street and Glastonbury on the edge of the Somerset Levels, a large area of protected nature reserve. We are perfectly situated for all sorts of pursuits.
If nature is your thing, we have it in spades, with a walking trail linking us directly to Westhay and Ham Wall nature reserves.
We are under the flightpath of the Starling Murmeration, so be sure to look up after 3.30 between October and March.
Our nearest neighbours are The Red Brick and Zigzag buildings, eclectic arts and community centres, who run a diverse programme of events from live music to aerial yoga, so its always worth checking out their websites.
There are a number of great cycle routes right on our doorstep.
For a proper Somerset Cider experience, Roger Wilkins Cider Farm at Lands End, Mudgely is a must do. Its a lovely 35 minute cycle ride across the levels, but go steady. Take bread, buy cheese (and cider obviously!) and drink responsibly.
Tell Rog, Bob says “How be on?”
