Walk, hike or run!

Here at Old Rectory House walking and running are passions of ours. We are extremely fortunate to be situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, sandwiched between the Jurassic Coast and the Quantock Hills. Setting off from Old Rectory House you can experience stunning walks along the cliff tops with waves crashing below or venture into the hills amongst wild horses and sheep with incredible 360 degree views over Somerset. We have listed a few of our favourite walks below all of which are downloadable onto your phone to help you with the route. There are different levels of difficulty to suit all whether you want a gentle, flat stroll or a more challenging hilly route.
