No. In Party
When people think of Somerset, one of the first things that comes to mind is often cider, but there is much more to warrant a holiday in Somerset than this. A tranquil county, Somerset is perfect for those rural retreats, whether you stay on a farm or on the outskirts of Bristol or Bath. With bustling cities and green space in equal measure, Somerset gives you the best of both worlds.
There are countless things to do whilst staying in a Somerset holiday cottage. Walk up Glastonbury Tor for a historic hike, or visit the gothic Wells Cathedral. The artsy city of Bristol is worth a visit for the Banksy graffiti, whereas Cheddar Gorge is a must for walkers and climbers alike. And, of course, sample some of the local Somerset cider and see how it's made at a local orchard.
