Local Walks And Trails

Critchill Manor is situated at the base of the Mendip Hills in an area that was once the great Selwood Forest. From Critchill itself you can take a footpath across the fields into the historic village of Nunney, where you can visit Nunney Castle, have lunch at the George Inn and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
