Burtle Home

A warm welcome to the Burtle Village Web Site, here you will find information about our village. The site provides information about both our history as well as present day life along with providing updates on future activities.

Burtle is located in the beautiful county of Somerset in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The area has been farmed for thousands of years originally salt beds and nowadays it provides good agricultural land to sustain many livestock farms.

There is a thriving local community within our village with people socialising in many different ways, Café Burtle provides the opportunity to catch up with friends and some of the many local groups have pages on our website.

The Village Hall provides the opportunity to get together and many of the activities in the village take place here. The Church is a welcoming place to either take a quiet few minutes on your own or take part in more formal gatherings.

“We must not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and to know the place for the first time.” – T. S. Eliot          Explore Burtle

The VH Committee have set up a facebook group for the Burtle Village Community to share ideas and promote local events. Please take a few minutes to find it and join. Feel free to share with your friends and neighbours, anyone in the village or surrounding areas who might be interested.


There are currently 31 members (and even more followers) and various groups have posted information about local events such as the Children’s Christmas Party, Bad Player events, a new exercise class starting up. There are also lots of pictures from the 10th Anniversary event of Café Burtle, showing the pretty gifts that Maureen and Jenny were presented with. We welcome contributions of photos, events and comments – the more the merrier.

If you are not on facebook, and need help to set it up, please just ask. Don’t worry if you are not a fan of facebook, this is designed to be an additional source of information, and will not replace the monthly posted newsletter.

This is primarily for the local community, and the main objective is to promote our Village Hall as the hub of that community. But it could be used for anything village related. You may want to promote your local business, or just ask for help collecting a prescription.
