Explore Greyfield Woods & Water Fall

What you'll do

Are you ready to dust down your walking boots?

Good. Because it's time to discover peaceful streams, calming waterfalls, beautiful woodlands and wildflowers smelling as sweet as the first glimpse of spring...

This scenic two-mile circular loop around Greyfield Woods, nearby the small village of Littleton, is just the ticket. Set yourself up for fantastic views and a breath-taking 18ft waterfall at the foot of a valley. Somerset's Greyfield Wood is a charming mix of ancient woodland and fresh flora and fauna. Once part of the Earl of Warwick’s hunting estate - now it's a beauty spot for all to enjoy.

Greyfield's home to a range of wildlife like rabbits and wild deer which add to this experience's magic. Bring along a packed lunch, find a picturesque spot and pop your picnic blanket down for a luscious lunch. You'll pass a small quaint village shop on the way to the woods if you want to scoop up anything from there.

The soothing sound of streams and cheery spring colours you'll encounter walking through the woodlands will lift your spirits. At the edge of the woods, you'll find the tranquil Stephen's Vale Nature Reserve - a small secluded reserve brimming with wildlife. Couple this with Bristol Steppin Sista's inclusive walking group, full of amazing women championing greater diversity in the great outdoors - your dreamiest day out awaits...

  • Please note: There are two tiny small slopes and one medium slope (these can be avoided, if necessary, to find another way around).

Minimum fitness level required.

About Bristol Steppin Sistas

Bristol Steppin Sistas is a community that empowers women, creating safe places for them to walk while grounding their mental and physical wellbeing. The outdoors is great for clearing the mind and enjoying good times - this is what this community is all about.

This walking group welcomes everyone regardless of their culture or race. Bristol Steppin Sistas acknowledge there's been a reluctance for women of colour to venture into unfamiliar spaces where they might feel exposed, judged or vulnerable. This walking group aims to motivate women of colour to visit rural areas around Bristol they haven't seen before and step across these boundaries in the safety and company of others who share similar experiences. Join this inclusive community celebrating Mother Nature and sisterhood around the South West's most stunning locations.

Your host

Sophie Brown

Sophie is the founder of Bristol Stepping Sistas and your qualified walk leader. Growing up in the countryside, Sophie always enjoyed exploring rural areas and found spending time in nature healing. But she recognised lots of women of colour are held back from doing the same - they might feel unsafe, judged or exposed in these unknown environments. Sophie was inspired to create safe walks where women of colour felt comfortable - Bristol Stepping Sistas was born. This growing sisterhood champions exercise, fresh air and nature with an encouraging support network at its core.
