Here are some suggestions for enjoying a picnic on Exmoor or the Quantock Hills. They are roughly in an order from east to west, can all be driven to and are mainly based on free or honesty box car parks. If you prefer you can purchase two booklets of The Best Picnic Spots from Combe Walks.

The locations all offer grassy areas or with picnic tables and some with additional facilities such as a pub, restaurant or cafe, and some with toilets. Some have excellent views or are beside rivers and all give a good chance of seeing wildlife close-to-hand.
