Our holiday cottages in Somerset provide the perfect place to explore this gorgeous location in England's picturesque South West. Find your way around the many bustling towns and seaside locations at your own pace, with your own private Somerset holiday cottage.
Beginning with Bath, you can see for yourself the stunning Roman architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the many museums and beautiful gardens. Perfect as well for romantic breaks, the natural hot springs at the Roman baths are still in use to this day, and one of our romantic holiday cottages in Bath such as Aquae Sulis apartment make an excellent base from which to discover the city.
A stay in Somerset wouldn’t be complete without seeing the stunning landscape of Cheddar Gorge. Great for a family day out in Somerset, there’s plenty to do with many beautiful walking routes, heritage museums, Cheddar Gorge caves to explore, and even rock-climbing for the adventurous. The South West Outdoor Festival also takes place on the edge of the Gorge annually, giving you plenty of opportunities to try something new, with everything from kayaking to axe throwing!
If you’re looking for somewhere to relax after a long day exploring, you of course must try the world-famous cheese as fresh as you’ll find it anywhere, and wash it down with some delicious locally made cider - yum.
One of the most surprising parts of a holiday in Somerset is finding the wide sandy coastline that stretches past Exmoor and beyond. A self catering cottage in Somerset such as Park Gate House offers plenty of space for larger groups or family. Being nestled right on the border of Exmoor National Park and only a short drive from the sea, you’ll find plenty to do within easy reach of your doorstep.
There are also many charming harbours, marinas, and coastal villages dotted along the coastline, such as Porlock. If you’re looking for traditional seaside fun, like donkey rides, fish and chips, pier-side attractions and much more, you can’t do better than Weston-Super-Mare, one of the oldest and most established English seaside locations in the country.
Whilst it doesn’t boast the largest number of cities to choose from, Somerset is still a great place for a cosmopolitan retreat and offers plenty that a city break could. Besides historic Bath, Wells offers another bustling location filled with historic places to visit as well as modern entertainment. The Sycamores is a great place to stay for a Somerset holiday, as it's close to both of these cities whilst remaining secluded in the rolling countryside in the heart of Mendip Hills.
Somerset is also right on the border of Bristol. Famous for Banksy and the steel art movement, there’s plenty to see and do, from famous architecture and theatres to speakeasies, nightclubs, and cocktail bars.
If you’re looking for contemporary dance, music, comedy, and theatre, the Glastonbury Festival is an absolutely must. Home to the famous Glastonbury Tor, various historic churches, abbeys, and springs, there’s plenty of cultural sites to visit.
The city itself is a hub of arts and culture, and is ideal for anyone looking for a truly unique stay filled with local charm. The Orchards for example makes for the perfect family holiday in Glastonbury, only a few miles from town and with excellent views of the Tor.
