Shepton Mallet is an excellent base for a self-catering holiday. It’s a historic town in the heart of Somerset that is in a fold in the Mendip Hills. Enjoy a light stroll around Shepton Mallet Park – feed the ducks at the lake or wander along the promenade. The town is the Bath and West Showground location, promoting a wide range of shows and events throughout the year. Visit the nearby Wookey Hole Caves, Britain’s most famous caves with beautifully lit lagoons under hundreds of years old stone and rock, and learn about the Witch of Wookey.

Indulge in a golf spot at Mendip and spend the day teeing off in the plentiful British sunshine. Or better yet, visit Longleat, the exotic animal adventure park that allows incredible, up-close encounters with some of the world’s largest creatures that would not be possible in the British wilderness. The caves, fairground museum and other family attractions at Wookey Hole are nearby and well worth a day out. Ride a steam train at the East Somerset Railway a few miles outside the town, or, if transport is your thing, a few miles further south, choose between the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton or the Haynes Motor Museum at Sparkford.
