Welcome to the website of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The Westcountry's hidden gem

The Blackdown Hills form a tranquil, beautiful, and relatively isolated landscape on the Devon and Somerset border. Steep ridges, high plateau, valleys and springs create a charming mosaic of countryside dotted with farms, villages and ancient features.

Beautiful and unique

This special place is home to wildlife and people, with valuable habitats existing alongside living, working communities. Unique geology creates an exceptional environment where rare plant, insect and invertebrate species can flourish.

Protected for the nation

The Blackdown Hills have been protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) since 1991. The Blackdown Hills AONB Partnership brings together over 80 organisations to protect this precious landscape.
