Holidays in Somerset

Come and stay at one of our amazing luxury large group holiday homes in Somerset; you'll love it. Somerset has some ofthe most gorgeous countryside in the UK, and it's so diverse; the steep wooded valleys of Exmoor National Park, the high bracken clad heaths of the Quantock Hills, and the rugged yet beautiful scenery of the Mendips. Then there's the flat, watery landscape of the Somerset Levels, where world famous Glastonbury Tor and Burrow Mump rise out of the mists, the wide sandy beaches at Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea and Minehead, the spectacular windswept shorelines of Kilve, East Quantoxhead and St. Audrie's Bay; the peaceful and picturesque coves of Porlock Weir, Bossington and Blue Anchor.     

There are sleepy market towns to mooch around, that come alive with the hustle and bustle of farmer's and artisan's markets - like Ilminster, Crewkerne, Wellington and Somerton; there are bigger towns and cities where the atmosphere is vibrant and you can pass the day among the mix of high street names, independent shops, restaurants and cafes or exploring the back streets of quirky cottages and grand merchant's houses. You could easily spend a whole day taking in the sights of Bath, Bristol, or Taunton, or soaking up the ambience in Wells, with its glorious cathedral, tranquil Bishop's Palace and the medieval cobbled Vicars' Close.

The apple orchards in blossom time are a picture, equally pleasing in late summer when the fruit hangs on the bough; some you can visit and sample cider made to traditional methods. There are farm shops packed to the rafters with local produce, and many have tea rooms where you can sit in the sunshine and enjoy a big fat scone or a generous slice of homemade cake. And of course, there are narrow winding lanes that you can pootle about to stop and take in the view from a gateway, and end up in a picturesque village with centuries old thatched cottages and usually, a welcoming country inn.

Book a rural retreat with Sleeps12; far reaching views and walks on the doorstep, and inside, heaps of space, fully equipped kitchens and the luxury of swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms and BBQ lodges. Such bliss!
