For those who like to walk, ride or MTB, the 9,500 acres of Quantock Hills are quite literally at the end of the garden of your dog friendly cottage. They are steeped in history, myth and legend and are staggeringly beautiful. The heathland is a mixture of vast open moorland with stunning coastal vistas and deep wooded stream laced coombes. Wildlife is in abundance. Deer, sheep and wild ponies roam freely while high in the mackerel skies birds of prey fly on the shimmering thermals.The Quantock Hills are quiet and if you see another person whilst out walking it would be a rarity.
