The Blackdown Hills are a nationally important landscape and were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in recognition of the special qualities of their natural and built environment. Being relatively unspoilt, the Hills offer a rare sense of timelessness.

A network of hedges, mature hedgerow trees and small copses link a rich mosaic of semi-natural habitats. The area is perfect for walks, cycling and horse riding where the quiet bridleways and byways offer many opportunities to explore and enjoy the locally distinctive buildings, archaeological remains and natural flora and fauna.

The Hills have a variety of tourist accommodation providers ranging from bed & breakfast establishments, beautiful country houses, converted barns, farmhouses and cottages. There are a number of self-catering cottages and a small range of family run hotels and guesthouses.

This area is renowned for its fantastic range of welcoming country inns, many of which offer terrific menus of home cooked food, sourced from local produce.

The Blackdown Hills are perfect destination for short break holidays, where visitors can join in with organized activities such as guided walks, hedgerow skills workshops, fishing, arts and crafts, writing courses... the list is endless!
