Explore Great Wood

A stunning site in the Quantocks, Great Wood is the perfect spot to enjoy a family picnic or BBQ.

Spend some time exploring the nooks and crannies of Great Wood and admire some majestic Douglas fir along the two mile red walk, which is ideal for families. 

Bring your bike and head out into the forest for a leisurely cycle. We don't have waymarked cycle routes but there are plenty of bridleways and forest roads to explore on two wheels, or on horse back.
