Travelling by Car
Just 150 miles from London and Birmingham
The M5 motorway comes fairly close to this area and links with the M4, or the A303 offers a more scenic alternative when travelling from the South East.
To reach the Quantock Hills, West Somerset Coast and the eastern side of Exmoor, leave the M5 at junctions 23 or 24. These will bring you to Bridgwater. From Bridgwater follow the A39 which skirts around the northern edge of the Quantock Hills to Williton.
The A358 from Taunton links with the M5 and A303 to Williton.
From Williton the A358 continues along the western edge of the Quantock Hills. You can continue along the A39 from Williton and this will bring you to the eastern side of Exmoor at Dunster and Minehead.
To reach the western side of Exmoor, continue along the M5 to junction 27 for North Devon. From here follow the A361 towards Barnstaple.
At the first roundabout you reach you can turn right along the A396 which takes you along the River Exe valley and the southern edge of Exmoor.
Otherwise keep on the A361 for a further 19 miles to reach Aller Cross roundabout. Turn right here on to the A399 towards Combe Martin. This will bring you along the western edge of Exmoor with various roads to the right taking you into the moor and the N Devon coast on Exmoor.
