Stay in a Pub in Somerset


Somerset’s breathtaking scenery is full of surprises. Round every bend in the road, it seems, the landscape changes in both feel and character. Away from the beautiful Exmoor National Park, the coast and the much-loved seaside resorts of Burnham on Sea, Minehead and Weston-super-Mare are the Mendips, 25 miles long by five miles wide and rising to just over 1,000 feet above sea level. With such a range of landscapes, Somerset is a great destination for holidays of all kinds – walking, cycling, romantic, cultural or family.

In this region, you’ll find Cheddar Caves and Gorge where stunning geological formations attract countless visitors who are left with a lasting impression of unique natural beauty.

In complete contrast are the Somerset Levels, an evocative lowland landscape famously prone to flooding, and rising over the county are the Quantocks, noted for their gentle slopes, heather-clad moorland stretches and red deer.

One of Somerset’s most famous features is the ancient, enigmatic Glastonbury Tor. Steeped in early Christian and Arthurian legend, the Isle of Avalon is one of a number of ‘islands’ rising above the Somerset Levels. This was once the site of the largest and richest monastery in medieval England and it is claimed that in this fabled setting Joseph of Arimathea founded the first Christian church in the country.

For those looking for a more cultural break, discover beautiful Wells, home to an incredible and architecturally stunning Cathedral or spend some time visiting the mighty castles of Nunney, Farleigh and Dunster.
