Family fun in the heart of Somerset
Among the most magical of natural wonders are the glistening, glacier like formations created in caves from the action of water on limestone. We are lucky enough to have show caves at Cheddar and Wookey Hole. Wookey has the largest underground dome in the UK, a river, a ‘giant’ and a ‘witch’ while Gough’s Cave in Cheddar has chambers known as St Paul’s Cathedral and Solomon’s Temple as well as a black cat.
There are big cats of the real variety at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. In fact there are animals from alpacas to zebras and everything in between at this award-winning hands-on zoo and working farm. On Exmoor, the Owl and Hawk Centre has a large collection of owls and birds of prey that you can watch being flown. Near Crewkerne is the South West Deer Rescue Centre where you can have a rare close-up view of these timid creatures.
One brilliant way to see the countryside and the coast is to catch a steam train at one of the smart little stations along the 20-mile track of the UK’s longest heritage railway. The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons of the West Somerset Railway are a joy to behold.
