Countryside attractions in Somerset



Badgworthy Water
The heart of Lorna Doone country - Badgworthy Water offers excellent walking trails deep into Exmoor National Park.

Exmoor 
a huge sandstone plateau split by deep coombes, or wooded valleys, Exmoor is home to some of the most varied and beautiful scenery in England. Somerset is home to about 2/3 of Exmoor, with the remainder lying in Devon, to the west.

Exmoor Heritage Coast
England's highest coastline, with striking "hog-back" cliffs towering over the Bristol Channel.

Mendip Hills
A high limestone ridge in northeast Somerset, riddled with caves such as Cheddar Cave and Wookey Hole. Below the Hills are the Somerset Levels, marshy ground that was under water in the Middle Ages.

South West Coast Path
the longest and, occasionally most arduous, of England's National Trails runs from Minehead along the coast and into Devon on its way to Lands End and the south coast.
