There is so much that is special about Somerset. Indeed most people outside of the County don't know that the majority of Exmoor (two thirds to be precise) is actually in Somerset not Devon.
Somerset is home to the Somerset Levels & Moors, Exmoor National Park and three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)- the Quantock, Blackdown and Mendip Hills.
In addition, Somerset has a whole host of RSPB, English Nature and Somerset Wildlife Trust Reserves and protected Areas.
