Somerset is a peaceful county that stretches from the fossil rich coast around the Bristol Channel through the Levels and Moors punctuated with Glastonbury Tor and the deep caverns of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole. You can cycle, walk or trek around the countryside and spend the day on the beach or one of the traditional piers.
Somerset is full of wonderful villages and towns offering some lovely holiday cottages all within easy reach of the major cities of Bath and Bristol which offer heritage combined with a cosmopolitan lifestyle.
