The area is perfect for escaping the stress of the modern world.
Stogumber is surrounded by footpaths through the local countryside, and only minutes away from the Quantock Hills, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, and Exmoor National Parks, where the landscape is rich in wildlife including herds or red deer and the famous Exmoor ponies. Buzzards soar overhead whilst foxes and badgers are frequently seen.
With footpaths such as The Coleridge Way, The Samaritans Way and the Macmillan Way passing close to Wick House, we will take you to the start of your foray into this delightful part of the country and collect you at the end of the day, providing you with a delicious packed lunch if you wish. We will also transfer you luggage to your next B&B if you are doing a linear walk
