One of the larger English counties and yet far from the most densely populated, Somerset has so many surprises waiting to be unwrapped by the inquisitive visitor. Even those who live here can be taken aback to discover some of its gems; wildflower meadows, beach waterfalls, ancient wells, unique carvings and underground reservoirs. Then there are the well-known landmarks which, despite seeming all too familiar, have secrets of their own. Think of Somerset and what comes to mind - stunning views across open countryside, sandy beaches, superb strawberries, Cheddar cheese and cider? World-wide, our county is famous for its Glastonbury Festival, illuminated carnivals, Mulberry handbags and Arthurian Legends. There is more! Much more.
Home to acres of stunning orchards and rich pastures perfect for grazing, it’s no wonder Somerset is home to fantastic artisanal produce. Local farm shops and delis are brimming with regional, sumptuous fare - including world-famous brands that started here in Somerset.
