This is a beautiful place to visit and you are rewarded for your efforts of the steep, but short climb to the top with extensive views over the Somerset levels. I understand why there are (lots) of sheep on the Mump, a natural way to keep the grass short.. But my word they produce a lot of shi.. sheep droppings!... More

Parking is easy, the climb up is fun for adults and children alike and the view is amazing. There are sheep grazing but what better way for the National Trust to keep the grass under control. We did not find the sheep droppings a problem as mentioned in a previous review. The children loved it and so did we.

a lovely little stop where a brief steep climb affords great views over the surrounding countryside.

The title speaks for itself really. We were staying very close by to Burrow Mump and thought we would have a nice walk up to Burrow Mump. The field is literally full of sheep and sheep muck so you have to pick your way up to the top.

Unfortunately only able to spend one night in our local B&B (highly recommended, Rosewood House) but able to spend time exploring the Burrow Mump. Outstanding views from the top after a nice little 'hike', but worth it. Capped the evening off with a wonderful dinner at the local, The King Alfred - great local atmosphere in a quaint English pub,... More

A small hill with a ruined chaple, great lay line energy. Lovely views over the Somerset Levels and beyond, walk the hill (National Trust) and then to the King Alfred for lunch

Good free car park at the bottom of the Mump, easyish steep trek up to the top. Gives you a great 360 degree view for miles around. Well worth a visit when you pass through Burrowbridge on the A361.

I've played on the Mump rolling down the hill climbing back up climbing the walls of the church watching the views for miles around our favourite spot as kids at weekends school holidays cycle down lock bikes up in car park spend all day on the mound have picnic. Even took the future husband there as a lasting momento before... More

Wonderful Somerset Landmark which is currently a lovely cycling destination from the Street side due to road closure. Be careful on climb up as very slippery but view of floods is amazing. Say a prayer while up there for all the people suffering in the floods!

Looks good as you approach with parking at the foot of the hill. In a rural area and not too difficult a climb for a good view of the area. Nice place to take the dog for a walk.
