Staple Plain, the Quantocks, Somerset

If you’re staying at one of the fantastic Sleeps12 properties in or near the Quantock Hills, go and have a wander round Staple Plain. Pull up in the car park, lace up your boots and go and explore this gorgeous National Trust owned land; the broadleaved woodlands are a delight any time of year, the combes and heaths are a paradise for nature lovers (look out for red deer and skylarks). The views are incredible and there’s even a short easy-access trail. You’ll lose count of the number of times you say ‘wow’.
