Located in Exmoor National Park, Chargot Wood is a beautiful coniferous woodland that provides a tranquil environment and an exciting range of wildlife. Chargot is also a hub for the West Somerset Mineral Line with a variety of fascinating industrial heritage to explore.
Found on the north end of the Quantock Ridge, come and enjoy glorious views out over the Bristol Channel and across to Exmoor at St Audries. This small wood is not well known by tourists making it a stunning secret get away, perfect for a quiet ride or dog walk.
Historically, the area formed part of the Quantoxhead Estate and was planted in the late 18th Century. By 1911 the woodland supported 120 fallow and 25 red deer!
