Whether you’re interested in the area’s heritage or keen to explore the wildlife, the Blackdown Hills AONB has plenty to offer. We don’t have hoards of tourists, it’s a tranquil and understated place – perfect for people who prefer to get off the beaten track.

Before setting off, it is well worth familiarising yourself with the advice we have given about the weather and terrain, cattle, dog walking and ticks.
