Quantock Hills


Quantock Hills - Somerset Coast Festival polaroid image

The Quantock Hills are an area of wilderness and tranquillity. Panoramic views lead you through coast, heath and combe. Explore and you will find rocky Jurassic coastline, exposed heathland summits, deep wooded combes, undulating farmland and attractive villages all within this protected landscape.

The Quantock Hills are the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) created in England, which means that its distinctive character, natural beauty and cultural heritage are so outstanding that it is in the nation’s interest to safeguard them. The area received its protected status in 1956. This precious and ancient place with its distinct cultural heritage and village communities is hugely valued locally as a native or adopted homeland and workplace, as well as a favoured educational, recreational and even spiritual resource.
