The Quantocks are an area of wilderness and tranquillity. Panoramic views lead you through coast, heath and coombe. Explore and you will find rocky Jurassic coastline, exposed heathland summits, deep wooded coombes, undulating farmland and attractive villages all within this protected landscape.
The Quantock Hills were the first place in England to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In the late 1790s, the Romantic poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth spent a year in the Quantocks, getting inspiration for many of their most famous works from their walks in this lovely area.
"There is everything here: sea, woods wild as fancy ever painted, brooks clear and pebbly, villages so romantic"
- The Quantock Hills, described so rapturously by Dorothy Wordsworth when she came here in 1797 have changed very little since that time.
The Somerset region
If you like walking you can follow in the footsteps of the poet Coleridge along the route that takes his name or trail along any of the many hills, rivers and waterways that cross the County.

"Beautiful cottage in magical setting" -
"A wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable and well appointed with helpful and friendly owners."
"The perfect hideaway in a stunning location tucked away from the world."
"The cottage was beautifully and stylishly decorated, well-equipped and spotlessly clean, surrounded by its own large garden and wonderful views from every window (and there are lots due to the hexagonal shape of the cottage). The owners were lovely and had also provided a basket of goodies for us on arrival. Our children aged 5 and 9 loved it too. There are lots of walks from right outside the cottage and a shallow brook twisting through the woods perfect for paddling and dam building. Would definitely visit again"
