Deer Leap Heritage Reserve

 

 

 

 

With stunning views across Somerset and the Bristol Channel, Deer Leap is one of the most breath-taking spots in the county. On a clear day you can see across to the Quantock Hills across the Levels and Moors of Somerset.

 

Glastonbury Tor, the Admiral Hood Monument and Nyland Hill are clearly visible, along with many of the small 'islands' that sit within the marshes.

 

Deer Leap is the site of an abandoned medieval farmstead and provides fine walking opportunities leading to the footpaths and a line of nature reserves along the southern edge of the Mendip Hills.

 

Access to this reserve is half way between Wookey Hole village and Charterhouse and there is free car parking.
