An Introduction to Somerset

For a wonderful blend of heritage, coast and countryside, our Somerset cottages stand out from the crowd. This captivating county is naturally blessed and boasts three AONBs (Quantock, Blackdown and Mendip Hills), the ruggedly beautiful Exmoor National Park and dramatic features like Cheddar Gorge.

Sweeping sandy beaches and attractive seaside resorts like Weston-super-Mare and Minehead promise endless fun for 'toddlertastic' activities and high-energy water sports. Or escape the crowds and opt for Exmoor's shores for amazing coastal walks, wildlife watching, fossil hunting and photography.

Along your travels, discover sleepy villages, bustling market towns and cider and cheese farms - great places to sample Cheddar and the local brew or replenish shelves in your Somerset cottage's fridge! And don't forget that Somerset is also home to the city of Bath, one of the UK's finest historic cities, where the fascinating Roman Baths, the Royal Crescent and the illustrious Bath Abbey hark back to the city's regal past.

With such spectacular surroundings, this is the ideal place to try some invigorating activities. Walk the Coleridge Way or coastal path. Go cycling in the Mendips, saddle up on Exmoor, fish for freshwater salmon and trout or visit the West Somerset Railway.

Attractions not-to-miss during your Somerset cottage stay include Wells Cathedral in England's smallest city, Glastonbury Abbey and Glastonbury Tor, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Caves, various castles and stately homes, as well as heaps of exciting rides at Brean Leisure Park in the coastal resort of Brean.

Dig out those flowery wellies and hang out at Glastonbury Festival. Add T4 on the Beach, the Tour of Britain, carnivals and country fairs - numerous events to enjoy on Somerset's annual calendar.

From weekend breaks to sunny summer holidays, our Somerset cottages invite you to explore the best of the West Country!
