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, otherwise known as Beacon Hill, near West Quantoxhead. 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’.
