Holidays in Somerset
Holidays in Somerset offer something for everyone, whether it is for summer holidays, weekend breaks, longer getaways or last minute short breaks. Explore the staggering cliffs and caverns at Cheddar Gorge, fantastic scenery, red deer and ponies on Exmoor National Park or the castles at Dunster and Farleigh Hungerford.
With three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, five hill ranges such as the Blackdown Hills and the Quantocks, the Levels and numerous nature reserves, there’s plenty of wonderful countryside to discover, and if you fancy a trip to the seaside, there are over 50 miles of coastline, including fossil hunting at Kilve Beach. Exmoor National Park is also a designated ‘International Dark Sky Reserve’, perfect for star-gazing.
Stroll around historical houses and gardens such as Montacute House, Tyntesfield, Hestercombe Gardens and Lytes Cary Manor. And for the true taste of Somerset, visit the many speciality food and drink producers – try some real Cheddar cheese and Somerset apple juice, cider or cider brandy. There are many pretty villages, and elegant towns and cities, such as Wells, with its stunning cathedral and Bishop’s Palace. And don’t miss a walk up the famous Glastonbury Tor.
Holidays in Somerset are perfect for enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, walking, cycling and discovering the diverse local wildlife. Pets can be catered for too, just look for accommodation that is dog friendly or where there is stabling available for your horse.
