Book a holiday cottage in Burrowbridge if you would like to explore Somerset during your next break in thr south west. Burrowbridge is a small attractive village on the banks of the Parrett River in the County of Somerset. It is surrounded by picturesque countryside in the heart of the Somerset Levels and has a fascinating history which reaches as far back as Neolithic and Roman times. The village is dominated by the impressive Burrow Mump which commands the skyline and is where the Saxon King of burnt cake fame, Alfred, took refuge when Viking Invaders arrived.

Walkers are drawn to the village where a network of footpaths and cycle tracks offer peaceful walks along the river banks and through the beautiful surrounding countryside. There are a few shops for the everyday essentials, a market which takes place monthly, and, if hunger strikes close to the bridge which spans the River Parrett is the welcoming King Alfred Inn serving a tasty bite and something a little stronger.
