“The original section of this traditional inn is a Mendip cottage dating from the 16th century. Inside is the real treat with four terracotta rooms and a traditional atmosphere pervading through the three individual bars. Terrific village inn with some interesting locals!”

We rely on the generosity of all the pub landlords / managers to allow us to use their facilities as checkpoints on the Butcombe Trail Ultra. If you are doing recces of the route, please pop into the pub and buy a drink or some food, and be sure to let them know you are training for the BTU!
BTU56: This recce is the entire western loop of the race route.
BTU50: From the start to Rowberrow is the race route, then there is an off-route link down to Axbridge (a taster of the BTU56!). Axbridge back to Bleadon is back on the race route.
This recce can be made shorter by cutting down the Strawberry Line cycle path.
