Stretching from the coast of the Bristol Chanel, this area incorporates part of Exmoor National Park, the Brendon Hills, Quantock Hills and Blackdown Hills to the South and West, the Somerset Levels and Moors across the central belt and the Mendips to the North. There is something for most tastes, Bristol is a modern city with historic attractions and a vibrant night life, going to the other extreme you can find peace, quiet and solitude in the depths of Exmoor.
