Find cottages in SomersetVisit Somerset

At the heart of the West Country, Somerset's rolling hills, deep gorges and flowing rivers tell the tales of myths and legends.

From castles, abbeys and museums, to classic English houses and gardens, this is rural England at its best, and with such a wide range of things to see and do, a cottage holiday here provides the perfect base from which to explore the area.

Begin your visit to Somerset by exploring some of the area's rich heritage, starting off with the enigmatic Glastonbury Tor. Sitting high above the land like a beacon, it holds stories of the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. At the base of the Tor lie the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, set in 36 acres of beautiful parkland and ponds it's the perfect destination for a family day out. There's an abundance of historical places in the region so take the time to explore as many as possible, especially Wells Cathedral and the Roman Baths and its museum.

If you can tear yourself away from exploring Somerset's past there's a lot more to explore. Longleat Safari Park is just one of the many animal attractions in the area, but you can also get up close and personal with magnificent shire horses birds of prey and marine life.

From the open expanses of gardens and ancient oak woodlands to sparkling rivers and sandy beaches, Somerset is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. There are some great natural wonders to explore and with its steep inclines, dramatic peaks and amazing views, Cheddar Gorge makes an ideal location for walkers, climbers, cavers and sightseers alike. Lazy afternoon picnics can be enjoyed, and there's a superb selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes cooking up fresh local produce so you can take a night off from cooking. You could even make a night of it and go see a show at the 17th century Theatre Royal in Bath.

These detached holiday cottages are perfect for any occasion and are surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Somerset/Devon border. The Mill House (ref EXP) has been sympathetically renovated to create an amazing internal space and high vaulted ceilings. It certainly carries the words "wow factor". The property sits on a well renowned private exclusive country estate in Somerset and boasts over 3 acres of formal and informal gardens hidden away yet easily accessible to both local guests and those from further a field and is located only 2 hours from London. The Mill House is popular with birthdays, anniversary, corporate celebrations as well as intimate receptions and is finished to a good standard, boasting private accommodation for 10-13 guests. The Lake House (ref EXN) is a unique, 13th-century thatched barn situated close to the owner’s home. This holiday property offers charm and a relaxing atmosphere, as well as a lake with its own seating area, ideal for al fresco dining. The owner can provide a personal chef for a sit down dinner (for up to 12 guests) or a luxury/social buffet-style celebration, perfect for a private birthday, anniversary or just for friends who want to get together. In addition, a sommelier can also be provided to create a special escape experience. As an extra treat, let the full time in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). Both properties offer special touches, with quality toiletries, fluffy towels and bathrobes in each room, along with chic furnishings and cool lighting. Simply charming in every aspect and a place where guests can relax, complete with a full plasma TV, music and Wi-Fi package for those still wishing to keep in touch with the outside world.
