With pet-friendly options, larger properties and even cottages with swimming pools, there are Somerset holiday cottages available for all tastes and budgets.
Things to do on your Somerset cottage holiday
Somerset has lots going on and is a top destination for adventures with the family or romantic getaways. Somerset's beautiful landscapes are ripe for exploring and are characterised by moody moorlands, rolling green hills, and rugged coastline. Why not visit fascinating natural landmarks like Cheddar Gorge (yes, the cheese was invented here too!), or head out to one of the three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty Quantock Hills, Blackdown Hills or Mendip Hills.
North Somerset encompasses both parts of Somerset's coastline and a slice of the Mendip Hills AONB. So whether you want to feel the sea air on your face, or wish to take a stroll among the lush green hills, there is something for you here. A trip to North Somerset would also be incomplete without sampling some of the fantastic local produce. Somerset is famous for its delicious cheese and cider.
Somerset, although a rural place can also get pretty lively. The county is home to the Glastonbury Festival, as well as other festivals like the illuminated festival and Guy Fawkes Festival, which both take place in the picturesque town of Bridgewater, where you'll also find a museum, the Blake Museum, and lots of historic landmarks like the Corn Exchange. Looking for a laugh - our UK comedy Clubs guide includes some great clubs in Bristol.
Somerset really does have it all, including miles of stunning coastline. Seaside resorts like Burnham-on-Sea offer everything you'd expect from a British coastal town, while more secluded areas like Ladye Bay are a little wilder; a picturesque small sandy beach backed by rugged cliffs.
