From Minehead, the fit walk up it, the brave cycle up it and the not-so fit and active can drive up it but you certainly can’t miss it. Towering over Minehead, North Hill boasts spectacular views across the town and out over the Bristol Channel to Wales. Exmoor ponies graze freely and there are red deer in the woods.
From the car park at the very end, there are spectacular views west along the coast over Porlock Bay and beyond towards Countisbury and Foreland Point. From here, it's a short walk up Selworthy Beacon with views North across to Wales and South to Dunkery Beacon (the highest point on Exmoor). Alternatively, follow the easy access trail through woodland to the four-sided stone seat, a memorial to the Acland family who once owned this part of North Hill.
