Sitting at the heart of the West Country, anyone looking to book holiday cottages in Somerset will find a property to meet their needs and budget in choice of coast or countryside locations. Somerset is an ideal county for all kinds of holiday from a weekend break to a week or longer on a holiday with family or friends. Discover the landscape, history and culture of this beautiful rural County. Somerset features a long stretching coastline, quaint Victorian seaside resorts, the Exmoor National Park, seductive English countryside, the Mendip Hills and many historical landmarks such as Wells Cathedral and sleepy market towns like Frome, Glastonbury and Crewkerne. Grab local produce and organic food at the bustling farmers markets to cook back at your holiday cottage accompanied by a flaggon of Somerset Cider.

Somerset is more than glorious countryside, cider and cream teas... It is a county of festivals, carnivals and events, most notable being the spectacular Glastonbury Festival, home to hundreds of household-name artists and around 175,000 revellers year after year. For something similarly spectacular, spend an evening watching the huge brightly lit floats at one of Somerset's magical winter carnivals in October and November. Most would give Rio a run for its money and should definitely be the highlight of a winter weekend break in a cosy holiday cottage on the Somerset Levels. Check out our Somerset Winter Carnivals Blog for details of when and where to find the carnivals for a late autumn break in Somerset

Somerset is home to the picturesque city of Bath (North Somerset), the only place in the UK where you can still bathe in naturally hot spa water and roman baths or simply gaze at the stunning architecture of the city at Pulteney Bridge. You’ll find many beautiful restaurants too. Somerset is famous for its Scrumpy Cider, Apples and Cheddar Cheese but foodies will find so much more tucked away in the county. Experience exquisite traditional restaurants and pubs hidden in local villages. You can even enjoy great Somerset food right through the day by indulging in a Somerset cream tea between lunch and dinner.

If you’re not afraid of heights or going underground, Cheddar Gorge and its caves are a stunning location to visit during your holiday, with dramatic cliffs rising up to 450ft. Those feeling really adventurous can head over to the caving and rock climbing activity centre on-site, whilst others can relax in the café nearby.

For those that aren’t so keen on heights the West Somerset Railway is a heritage railway line that spans 23 miles of the Somerset countryside and operates using steam and the occasional vintage diesel train. The route is ideal for a day out. Starting from Minehead, you chunter at a sedate pace through the rolling Quantock Hills, to Bishop's Lydeard (good for pub lunches) or travel onward by bus Taunton, Somerset's county town. If you prefer to take your time absorbing Somerset's beautiful wildlife and scenery there are hundreds of walks on Exmoor, or one of Somerset’s range of hills: The Mendips, Brendans, Quantocks and The Poldens, all giving incredible views of the surrounding countryside. All the family will love a trip to the Noah's Ark Zoo Farm near Portishead on the North Somerset coast. The farm is home to the longest hedge maze in England.

Somerset boasts some delightful seaside resorts all offering a healthy choice of self catering accommodation to suit all tastes. Weston-Super-Mare is always popular, with a golden sand beach and grand pier with rides and a great selection of food and drink. The West Somerset resorts of Watchet (lovely harbour) Blue Anchor, Dunster (superb castle), Minehead and Porlock offer a more quiet and tranquil seaside location that is ideal for building sandcastles sea angling and walkers. The West Somerset Steam Railway has stations at most of these resorts other than Porlock, so you don’t even have to drive!

When you are not walking, bathing or cycling Somerset’s hills and beaches, there are many interesting museums and country houses to explore. The most popular museum is The Haynes Motor Museum near Wincanton, where you can get a first-hand look at a timeline of motorcars in from around the world or try the nearby Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton that gets you up close and personal with Europe’s largest collection of naval aircraft and one of the first Concorde aeroplanes ever built. Alternatively aviation tourists can head to Weston-super-Mare to see the world's largest collection of helicopters at the International Helicopter Museum. Whatever time of year you choose to holiday, you will always find suitable holiday accommodation in Somerset to provide a memorable and relaxing holiday.
