Trek the hills, take a train, raise a glass

Wander through the garden to the steam railway, head into the woods, toast marshmallows on an open fire, walk the Quantocks, ride the Deane Way, or just raise your elbow in the Farmers Arms or Blue Ball Inn.

The Quantock Hills

The Quantock Hills are one of the great undiscovered rural areas of England.

Panoramic views lead you through coast, heath and combe. Explore and you will find rocky Jurassic coastline, exposed heathland summits, undulating farmland and attractive villages.

This jigsaw of varied landscapes gives the Quantock Hills a distinctive character. You’ll find scenic beauty, upland nature and a wide range of wildlife.

The Deane Way walk meanders through the Quantocks Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, running close by to the Barns.
