The Quantock Hills are situated between Taunton and Bridgwater stretching to the sea at the Bristol Channel. Though compact, measuring just twelve miles by four, they offer extensive views over much of Somerset and across to the Welsh coast.

Characterised by deep wooded valleys or "combes", open heath land and rich flora and fauna, the Quantocks are ideal for walking, cycling and horseriding. Such is their special quality, that this area was the first in the country to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956.

Amongst the many picturesque villages are: Kingston St Mary, Bishops Lydeard, Holford,Crowcombe and Nether Stowey, one time home of Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and starting point of the 51 mile Coleridge Way.

Fyne Court, near Broomfield was once the home of Andrew Crosse, an early pioneer of electricity, is the main visitor centre for the Quantock Hills.
