The Quantock Hills provides many opportunities for a wide range of activities including mountain biking, walking and horse-riding. There are extensive areas of open access land and a superb rights of way network. If you are planning to undertake any activity it is advisable to purchase the Ordnance Survey map of the area, Explorer 140 Bridgwater and the Quantock Hills.
If you are undertaking a group activity then please contact the AONB Office to discuss and get the latest advice on routes and conditions. The AONB Service runs an annual events programme of walks, talks and activities. If you want details please contact the AONB Office.
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) have been described as jewels of the English landscape and in terms of their landscape value are considered equal to that of National Parks. There are 36 AONBs in England, covering about 15% of the English landscape. The smallest AONB is the Isles of Scilly covering only 16 sq km and the largest is the Cotswolds totalling 2,038 sq km.
The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covers 99 square kilometres running North West from the vale of Taunton Deane to the Bristol Channel Coast. The Quantock Hills was England’s first AONB being designated in 1956 (confirmed in 1957) and consists of large amounts of heathland, oak woodlands, ancient parklands and agricultural land.
Because of the special nature of the Quantocks much of it is covered by a designation of Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for the geologically interesting coastline to the maritime heathlands on the northern hills.
