The Quantock Hills were England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, being designated in 1956. Following the success of last year’s event, The Quantock Experience is back for a week of all things Quantocks, organised in partnership by Halsway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, South West Heritage Trust and the Quantock Hills AONB Service. In a week combining indoor and outdoor activities, talks, walks and experiences, discover and enjoy the landscapes, wildlife, history, geology, archaeology, folklore and crafts of this unique area. Come as a residential – or non-residential – visitor for the full week, come as a day visitor, or book for individual events.
Check back here for a fully updated programme of events. Last year’s very successful Quantock Experience week included lectures on art, Coleridge, and archeology, bat and owl watching, wildlife and plant identification walks, willow workshops, wild bush craft skill sessions, ceilidhs, music… and a whole lot more.Book now
