An opportunity to walk in the steps of the famous Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, author of such poems as The Rime of The Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan. This epic landscape gave inspiration not only to his prose, but that of his friends Dorothy and William Wordsworth who both travelled here to stay with Coleridge. This trail extends from North Somerset, through both the Quantock and Brendon Hills onwards to Exmoor National Park. Be inspired by the same views, open landscapes and welcoming villages and towns. The route suggested below is at a relaxed pace allowing for further exploration of the area if you wish. Days can be lengthened to suit.
