South Somerset

The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life; wooded hills and rolling valleys, narrow winding lanes, the marshy lowlands of the Somerset Levels and Moors, quiet villages with thatched cottages and country inns, and small market towns with a range of shops and eateries. Take your ease and enjoy some country walks and picnics amidst this wonderful countryside.There’s plenty of nature reserves to explore, country houses and gardens to visit (try Montacute House, Barrington Court, and Hestercombe House and Gardens), and art galleries and museums a-plenty – take the enthusiasts to Haynes Motor Museum, Fleet Air Arm Museum, or Montacute TV Toy and Radio Museum. Visit in October or November when it’s carnival season and the streets are aglow with the bright lights and music of the floats; everyone comes out to see the parade and join in the fun! South Somerset - the pace is slower, it’s a different way of life; it’s so relaxing!
