Goblin Combe


Goblin Combe is a site which has contrasting areas, from the airy grasslands to a dark woodland. The Goblin Combe makes a great spot for butterflies and it provides a stunning view across Mendip. There is a thriving population of hazel dormouse and over 30 species of butterflies on the reserve.

Goblin Combe is a gorge cut into the limestone by melting snow and ice during the last ice age. The area is perfect if you like butterflies and beautiful views. It is open at all times, but the best time to visit is from March till July or September till November. The access includes very steep steps and paths which can be muddy. When walking around here you have to be cautious and do not approach cliffs or scree slopes. Dogs are allowed onto the site, but have to be on lead. Parking is available in the quarry on Cleeve Hill Road, near the Goblin Combe Environmental Centre. By car the site can be reached in 30 minutes from the city centre. The bus route takes about 30 minutes from the city centre to the bus stop, then it is about a 7 minute walk towards the entrance. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!
