Quantock Hills

Photo supplied by Peter GroverCotford St Luke is within a mile of the Quantock Hills, the first area in England to be declared an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

At any time of the year walks over the hills can be a delight.  On a clear day the views extend to the mouth of the River Parrett on the north Somerset coast and the coast of Wales.  Whilst on Cothelstone Hill more than 200 years ago the Somerset historian Collinson wrote “From this delightful spot the eye commands 14 counties and, with a glass on a clear day, 150 churches…

 

There are several lovely walks across the hills or in the surrounding area, starting at points such as:

Cothelstone Hill – an excellent place to fly a kite

Kilve & East Quantoxhead – a place to explore the jurassic coast

Ramscombe & Great Wood – showcases many mixed woodland trails

Hawkridge Woods – with a reservoir and old lime kiln
