The great outdoors in gentle format
Jun 2020
There's a quiet beauty, a calm and gentle peace about these hills. We often walk from Lydeard Gate, or Crowcombe Gate a bit further North. Easy walking among beautiful combes and hills, loads of tracks and paths to follow, and never more than a few other humans in view. We must have clocked up several hundred miles all told - but we never tire of this wonderful landscape.

Beautiful

Took my children back to my old stomping ground of the Quantock Hills ridden and walked over frequently for many of my youthful years. This time with the children mountain biked from Weacombe back to Taunton following bridlepaths and the Great Road. Weather was amazing and views stunning. Was disappointed to see idiot people feeding and patting the quantock ponies near to Crowcombe Park Gate. They need to be wary of people and cars in order to stay away from the roads, you fools!

Great walks with fantastic scenery

Spent a couple of hours walking the hills, you can see all the way over to Minehead, Wales and Somerset.

Horses roam the hills and are quite friendly so bring a bag of apples or carrots for them.

Area Of Outstanding Beauty
Mar 2018 • Couples
We recently spent 3 nights staying in the Quantock Hills & thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area.
Although it is not a huge area there is much to see & do.
Quite rightly it has been awarded the recognition as an “Area Of Outstanding Beauty”

Just on the edge of the Quantocks near N Petherton is a National Trust property - Fyne Court. Well worth a visit for the walking & plenty to interest young children. The narrow lanes to get there are quite challenging!

England's first ANOB and rightly so

Approx 12 miles long and up to 2 miles wide, people still get lost on the Quantocks! Maybe it's because they are rightly staring at the views rather than paying attention to which Coombe they are walking up or down.
These steep sided valleys that branch off the main bridleway quickly drop into often dense and sometimes ancient woods.
A walk up Bicknoller Coombe and then stay high on the immediate ridge line on the right, eventually dropping back into the Coombe is a particular favourite. Often providing glimpses of deer on the slopes and birds of prey as they hunt. The view as you walk along the gentle ridgeline is outstanding. From Minehead to Taunton and across to the Wellington Monument, the Vale of Taunton is laid out before you.
As an occasional mountain biker, the whole area is littered with trails and with a bit of planning, you can easily end up at one of a number of excellent pubs, if not more than one!

Don't spoil it, go somewhere else.

This range of hills was my childhood and youthtime playground, when it was free and open and managed by private owners and commoners. Now the historic roads are closed, tracks and paths being destroyed and the greenswards being wrecked by you wonderful "visitors" sadly assisted by "rangers" who tear around all over the place chewing up the surfaces in their land rovers looking for deer to photograph, So much wild life is in decline that I hardly recognise some of the most valuable and beautiful areas and many plants and creatures are just not found any more. Dog droppings, Needles and Rubbish are now much more commonplace than natures gems. I think the rare stonecrop at the top of H********* Cover has been harvested to extinction. And now they want to destroy the most famous and visible Seven Sisters landmark because of an excuse they found in Fairyland.

The Quantock Hills Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Feb 2016 • Solo
The Quantock Hills are over 400 Million years old and have been inhabited by all sorts of folk from the iron age bronze age right up to present times.
The views from the hills tops are stunning. The wildlife flora and fauna is equalling impressive.
Come take a walk and discover for yourselves
