Coleridge Way

35 miles (56 km)

Travel through the Exmoor National Park and the stunning Quantock Hills AONB as you walk in the footsteps of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
You start off in the pretty village of Nether Stowey, at the foot of the Quantock Hills and head west towards Holford, passing the iron age fort of Dowsborough on the way.
You continue through a wooded section at Alfroxton Woods and onto Stowborrow Hill with its resident deer before passing through Bicknoller and Monksilver where you enter Combe Sydenham Country Park. Here you will find a 15th century stately home set in a 500 acres estate which includes a Deer Park and a variety of walks.
The route continues through the Brendon Hills climbing to the high point of Lype Hill (1,388 ft) with wonderful views over the Exmoor National Park. You'll pass the villages of Luxborough and Cutcombe before climbing Horner Hill and passing the delightful Dunkery and Horner Woods Nature Reserve with its woodland and upland habitats. The path then descends to the finish point at the pretty coastal settlements of Porlock and Porlock Weir.
