Whether you are looking for a holiday in picturesque countryside or for fun at the seaside, the county of Somerset will not disappoint you. Why not consider a self-catering cottage in a village, or a beach house in a resort? Not only will you have more space than in cramped hotel rooms, but you and your family will be able to eat what you like, when you like without spending a fortune. You can choose a location close to the activities you want to pursue rather than being restricted to hotels in the larger towns.
From seaside resorts to beautiful countryside and places of historic interest, Somerset has a great deal to offer. There are popular beaches and plenty of entertainment at Minehead and Weston-Super-Mare. For wet weather, why not take a tour around the Fleet Air Arm Museum, or Haynes Motor Museum in Sparkford? Glastonbury, famous for its music festival that takes place in June, also has an abbey that is worth a visit. Don't miss the wonderful cathedral in the town of Wells, or the Bishop's Palace. Lovers of the countryside will be in their element in Exmoor National Park with its gentle hills and enchanting areas of woodland.
Somerset offers a variety of activities for children, both by the sea and inland. Noah's Ark Zoo Farm in Wrexall has wild animals as well as farm animals and children's rides. Teenagers who are fans of the Discworld novels will love the Cunning Artificer's Discworld Emporium in Wincanton, which has puppets, models and collectables based on Terry Pratchett's series of books. At Brean Leisure Park in Brean Sand, children can enjoy the pools and funfair while dad is at the eighteen-hole golf course. For rainy days, Jungle Jungle in Yeovil is an indoor adventure playground for young children.
Renting a holiday apartment or perhaps rooms in a farmhouse is the ideal option for a low-cost holiday in Somerset. If you want to spend your holiday in the countryside, a self-catering cottage in a village will save you travelling to and from a hotel in town. If your family prefers a seaside holiday, renting a flat by the beach in June or September will save you even more money. We can offer you good value with our range of rental accommodation.
