Explore the Quantock Hills

The Quantock Hills in Somerset are wonderful for walking, biking and horse riding; and their captivating views of the Bristol Channel, Wales, the Mendip and Blackdown Hills, Exmoor and the Somerset Levels inspired one of our greatest poets. Beacon Hill and Bicknoller Hill are both fantastic walking spots in the north-west corner of the Quantocks, above the village of West Quantoxhead.
