Stay in this beautiful cottage in the English countryside. With acres of land to explore, woodlands, lakes and gorgeous [..]
Somerset is the ideal destination for getting a bit of quintessential, old-time England. All peaceful woods and streams, and gentle, rolling hills nestling sleepy villages, it’s a county where you can wind down and escape the rush of urban life.
Get off-grid in stunning examples of quirky accommodation, head out for hikes in the beautiful countryside, sample the cosy local pubs in secluded thatched-roof villages, and revel in the quietness and calmness of it all.
Whether it’s the hillsides of the Quantocks, the caves, gorges, and ubiquitous cheese in Cheddar, or the legendary allure of Glastonbury, there are unique experiences and hidden gems to be found all over Somerset.
Of course, like anywhere in the UK, Somerset experiences mixed weather. The spring and autumn can be beautiful yet unpredictable, but then let’s be honest, even in the summer you might end up with a weekend of rain. When the weather is good though, Somerset is a beautiful part of the country to explore.
Open and quiet, you’re unlikely to find accommodation too difficult to come by as well, as you head away from the tourist traps and get a little off the beaten track.
Of course, in the height of summer there’s the world-famous Glastonbury, which attracts festival-goers from all over the globe, and autumn is the best time to head out trying Somerset’s famous cider.
