Stunning views and incredible walks. This is a great example of fantastic Wiltshire countryside. There are stunning views and also great routes along the Ridgeway that can take you to Hackpen and beyond towards Avebury. Great for walks on a summer evening.

Splendid views even in a wet autumnal day. It’s well worth a visit. You can ramble over the remains of the castle or go for an extended walk. Good parking.

This is a breathtaking spectacle which will impress all. Just 15 minutes south of J16 on the M4. It has a car park at the end of a long straight ascent with passing places, though it is easy to drive past it with its small...More

Not within walking distance but there is occasional ice cream van parked up. Nearest pub is 1-2 miles away. The CALLEY ARMS in Hudson village.
