Ubley Parish sits in the Yeo valley at the west end of the Chew Valley.  It is bordered to the north and south with ridges of hills, most significantly the Mendips to the south.  It sits within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and close to Blagdon Lake.  

Ubley is an attractive village set mostly on the valley floor but rises up on the lower slopes of the Mendip Hills to the south. 

The surrounding valley landscape is of farmland with small and medium sized fields largely for grazing.  Fields are separated by well-kept hedgerows with intermittent mature trees.  The whole area is rich in wildlife and is rural and unspoilt in character.

There are magnificent views from the slopes of the Mendips across the Parish and as far as South Wales to the west and the hills above Bath to the east. There is quite a lot of greenery throughout the village.  There are many mature trees, mostly in gardens and the Churchyard in and around the Conservation Area.  The roads are lined by a mixture of hedgerows and walls, the latter of which are of local stone.  The slopes of the Mendip scarp are densely wooded with an area known as Ubley Wood. 

The centre of the village is at The Cross, outside the 13th century St Bartholomew’s Church.  This is a conservation area, with charming houses and gardens and a view up to the Mendip Hills.

There is also a Primary School and a large village hall with a grass amenity area. The village hall hosts some large events such as the ever-popular beer festival in September which are open to all. The site of the Old Sawmill now hosts an artisan cheese-maker. 

Ubley has many way-marked paths leading either up to the Mendip Hills or down to the edges of Blagdon and Chew Valley Lakes. From the Mendip Hills above Ubley both lakes can be seen, and on a clear day the view is spread from Cardiff to the hills above Bath.

There is an Airbnb property in the village, which has recently been developed from an old Methodist Church. Neighbouring villages have accommodation and public houses and are a good base for fisherman who use both lakes to catch trout.
