Dundry is a North Somerset village situated on Dundry Hill, in the northern part of the Mendip Hills, between Bristol and the Chew Valley Lake. The city of Bristol is only four miles away and Bath is twelve miles to the west. Its lofty situation, seven hundred feet above sea level at the western end of an exposed four mile long ridge, makes it a notable landmark in North Somerset and its dominance is emphasised by a spectacular fifteenth century church tower. Dundry commands some of the most extensive and beautiful prospects in the west of England, and by night Bristol's lights create a breathtaking scene. The Dundry Inn public house is renowned in the area, and schools include a primary school with secondary schooling available at nearby Chew Valley, and a choice of private schooling in Bristol itself. The area around is well known for its beauty, activities and attraction. The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes provide a host of activities whilst the nearby Mendips are popular and boast great walking, riding and unspoilt nature.
