Welcome to the Quantock Hills Walking Festival
Based around Nether Stowey and Over Stowey, the Quantock Hills Walking Festival is a perfect chance to take in this amazing landscape which has welcomed walkers for hundreds of years and was recognised in 1956 as the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).
To give you a taster of the festival, Stowey Walking (the Walkers are Welcome group for Nether Stowey and Over Stowey) have created a selection of popular walks from previous festivals, available as a self-guided walk using Outdooractive.
Route maps and descriptions are available in the Contents tab, see above.
Since 2005 Nether Stowey has been the starting point of The Coleridge Way, a medium distance trail which now stretches 51 miles across the Quantocks and the Brendon Hills and onto Exmoor, finishing at Lynmouth Harbour.
The Quantock Hills Walking Festival provides an excellent opportunity to walk The Coleridge Way, explore the beautiful unspoilt Somerset landscape and meet the local people than to walk across it as Samuel Taylor Coleridge himself did.
