If you're next to the Mump and able don't be lazy. Climb to the top and you will be rewarded with fantastic panoramic views. We were here about a year after the flooding and coming up here gives one a real sense of the scale of the devastation.

Stunning views and only a short walk to the top! Great to go up on a sunny day and take in the fresh air. You can see for miles and it is great in all seasons. There is a car park to leave your car and a bike stand for bikes, all round a great place to visit.

Go on, up you go! Behold the beautiful Somerset levels... On a clear day you can see Glastonbury Tor. This is a great short little jaunt up the hill, and it might be a tad windy but it's worth it!

Although only a small hill, Burrow Mump stands out as it is surrounded by the flat expanse of the Somerset Levels. It was beside this hill that the world watched on as the surrounding countryside was engulfed in a vast flood of Biblical proportions in February 2014. The views are stunning! The climb to the Church ruins at the top... More

Getting to burrow mump is half the fun, travelling across the Somerset levels is amazing. When you arive at the mump "I love saying mump" you have a short climb upto the church and the rewarding views. If your travelling past or near burrow mump, put it on your "visit list" you won't be disappointed.

It is well worth the steep but short climb for the great views ot the Somerset Levels, especially on a sunny day. Yes, there were sheep but not a problem. This is the countryside, wear appropriate footwear and enjoy the scenery. Lunch in the King Alfred Inn was good too.

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.

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.
