Cricket St Thomas is located just a few miles east of Chard. The Liberty Trail runs just south of the park so you could pick this up if you wanted to continue your walk.
Woodchester Park4 miles (6 km)This National Trust owned park in the Cotswolds is the perfect place for a peaceful afternoon stroll. There are miles of easy footpaths taking you through the tranquil wooded valley to the five pretty lakes within the park. The walk also visits the Boat House, built in the early 19th century and the fine Victorian mansion. There's plenty of wildlife in the park too - look out for kingfishers and herons on the ponds and voles and bats in the woodland.
The Cotswold Way runs past the park so you could pick up this excellent trail to continue your walk.
Easedale Tarn6 miles (9 km)Enjoy a walk to the lovely Easedale Tarn in the Lake District. The walk begins in the popular town of Grasmere and follows the Easedale Road towards the pretty Easedale Beck. You then join footpaths taking you up to the tarn, passing the beautiful Sourmilk Gill waterfalls on the way. The tarn is in a lovely spot betweenTarn Cragto the north andBlea Riggto the south. It is generally quite a peaceful spot and a great escape from the often busy Grasmere town. There is a footpath around the tarn though this may be quite boggy. From the tarn, you return via Cockly Crag, Stenners Crag and Jackdaw Crag, before rejoining the Easedale Road back into Grasmere.
Another option is to continue to the nearby Stickle Tarn and Dungeon Ghyll Waterfall. You can do this by following the footpath west from Easedale Tarn rather than returning to Grasmere.
