Somerset Countryside

A Simply Inspiring Landscape

Discover why Somerset has been an inspiration for poets such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, authors including R.D Blackmore and films like Hot Fuzz and Elizabeth 1 - The Golden Age.

Explore the timeless beauty of rural Somerset.

With some dramatic natural features such as Cheddar Gorge and a remarkable coast, you will find everything you hoped for and more!

There is so much that is special about Somerset.

Did you know for example that the majority of Exmoor National Park (two thirds to be precise) is actually in Somerset not Devon?

Somerset is home to the Somerset Levels & Moors and three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) - Quantock Hills, Blackdown Hills and Mendip Hills.

In addition, Somerset has a whole host of Nature Reserves run by the RSPB, English Nature and Somerset Wildlife Trust as well as other protected areas recognised for their national and international importance.

If that's not enough then there are some great market towns and places to shop, as well as our superb Cider Farms! Start exploring now.
