St Audries, known locally as Deerpark, is an excellent starting point for exploring the Quantock Hills
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!
While you're in the area, why not venture along part of England's coastal path? The nearby stint follows 58 miles of gorgeous natural coastline from Brean Down to Minehead. The waterfall at St Audries Bay is a secret natural treasure found on the trail which can only be reached on foot at low tide.
