Visit Somerset - The Jewel of the South West

Your holiday troubles are over!

Somerset could be the best holiday decision you ever made....Spend five minutes on our site and let us convince you!

Imagine you’re looking down from above on a big round of Cheddar cheese with a quarter cut out of it, or looking at a clock face with the hours between 9 and 12 missing.

That’s the shape of Somerset....Even the missing bit has all sorts of things going on – a big bay with dramatic headlands, estuaries and islands. 

It’s 70 miles from 3 o’clock to 9 o’clock, and 50 miles from 12 to 6.

In between you’ll find not half a day but half a lifetime’s worth of things to do, attractions, days out and a 'whats on' guide packed with events and carnivals - all with delightful memories to mellow the other half of your life!

Home of Glastonbury festival, good food and drink, ancient sites and caves, fine walking country and tempting beaches - the list is endless!

You can also visit many of the UK's most unique towns and villages such as Weston-super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea, Taunton, Yeovil, Minehead, Portishead, Frome, Clevedon, Brean, Bruton and Dulverton, all with their own unqiue historical legacies just waiting to be discovered!

When it comes to accommodation, your're in good hands with a wide variety of hotels, bed and breakfasts, self catering and holiday parks to choose from, perfect for any need and requirement!

You can also circle Somerset clockwise or anticlockwise, or you can sit in the middle – relaxing with a pint of local cider, may we suggest – before striking out in any direction.

Whichever way you travel, you’ll discover a completely new landscape, different sites to explore and a whole new feel to your holiday.

Somerset’s a county of contrasts...That’s how we manage to pack so much into such a small place!

Wherever you look on our website you’ll find something new to do, a new chance to have a good time doing what appeals to you most.

Be our guest and browse through...It’s a holiday in itself! 

When it comes to the real thing you’ll know enough to get the most out of your precious leisure time.

All you have to do then is enjoy yourself!

But be warned: there’s just too much to take in on one trip...You’ll just have to come back again sometime soon!
