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.

Rowan Cottage Ref: E2330

Set within 30 acres of farmland backed by the Mendip Hills, just 4 miles from the vast sandy beaches at Brean and Barrow, this cottage provides the ideal base for exploring. Sympathetically converted from a former barn to offer comfortable and well appointed accommodation, it all shares a large landscaped courtyard. It enjoys a setting that is rural and peaceful yet is within easy reach of a wealth of places of interest. Cheddar Gorge, with its towering cliffs, stalagmite filled caves and its 10,000 year old man on display in the museum, makes a fascinating trip. So too does Wookey hole, an eerie network of underground caves, rivers and pools plus museums and family attractions. Bath is well worth a visit – an elegant city of golden stone with its Roman Baths and museum, The Royal Crescent and Robert Adam’s Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, as well as an assortment of shops and restaurants. Visitors to mystical Glastonbury (the site of the celebrated festival) will discover its 13th century ruined abbey, and views from the famous Tor. Also not far distant is Wells, the smallest city in England but boasting one of its finest cathedrals. Traditional seaside amusements can be enjoyed on Weston-super-Mare’s promenade and piers and there are pony rides on the beach at Brean.
