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 2 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.
