Getting There

Getting to Somerset

There are no airports in Somerset, but there are several major ones within easy reach of the county. The closest and best option is Bristol International Airport, which is located just outside of Somerset and is reasonably well accessed by flights from European destinations. If that isn’t an option, then you can also travel into one of the many London airports, which are very well-serviced from all corners of the globe, and make the two hour journey. Bath is a popular starting point in Somerset, and can be reached by train, though it’s advised to rent a car to get there and around the county.

Weather & Climate

Weather in Somerset

Somerset, like elsewhere in South-West England, is a lush and green county, but there is a cost to pay for this loveliness, and that is the rain. While far from excessive, it does receive above average amounts of wet weather compared to the rest of England, so make sure you pack some waterproof clothing for your stay at your Somerset holiday letting . That’s not to say you won’t have nice weather during your stay - winter occasionally brings snow, but your Somerset holiday home will feel cosy all year round. Spring and summer also bring plenty of warm, sunny days to help you explore this great region.

Attractions

What to do in Somerset

Booking your Somerset holiday letting is a great place to start, so you can explore all of Somerset's cities, villages and natural beauty at your own pace. The best place to start is Bath, the county’s biggest city and one of the UK’s most important sites.

A highlight of this UNESCO World Heritage city are the Roman Baths, which were founded in the first century A.D. and feature a stunning surrounding building, one of the most impressive in England, which was added around 200 years ago. Another must visit during your trip is Bath Abbey, England’s largest Gothic cathedral, which was founded in 1499. The Royal Crescent, a row of terraced houses, and the adjacent Royal Victoria Park also characterise all that is sophisticated about this thoroughly English city.

Somerset’s other city, Wells, is the smallest city in England. As it’s so small, you won’t need too long to see the highlights, which are the Wells Cathedral, which was built from the 12th-14th century, and Bishop’s Palace, which has been called home by local bishops for more than 800 years - and continues to be so to this day. Finally, make sure you go for a stroll along Vicar’s Close, Europe’s oldest residential street, which dates back to 1348.

Somerset is well known for its outdoor beauty, and nowhere is that felt more keenly that at Exmoor National Park. This large area is a joy to explore; go for a walk or a drive and you might come across rivers, waterfalls, woodlands, and deep valleys. The Exmoor Pony and wild red deer complete the spectacle of this enchanting region. There are more than 1000km of hiking trails, ranging from short strolls to long treks, so grab a map, strap on your walking boots, and head out for a day on the moors.

Family Activities

Wildlife for the whole family to enjoy in Somerset

Kids will love their stay in your Somerset holiday home just as much as you will. On rainy days, take them to the SeaQuarium situated on the sandy shores of Weston-super-Mare, which is home to a colourful array of fish species from around the world.

If they want to get a little more hands-on with wildlife during their say at your Somerset holiday letting , then Exmoor Falconry and Animal Park will do the trick. Here they can handle parrots and owls, as well as small furry animals and alpacas. Special events involving hawks and falcons are also a highlight. Wrap up with a trip to the North Somerset Butterfly House, a great attraction full of butterflies and plants from around the world, as well as a creepy crawly section that the kids will love.
