Or, visit the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and try out climbing, abseiling or even caving.
Somerset is rich with history and culture, with plenty of fascinating sites to explore. A trip to Wells Cathedral will transport you to the 12th-century with over 300 sculptures and an astronomical clock from 1390. A more luxurious 12th-century experience comes at Dunster Castle, a lavish Victorian home and former castle standing proudly at the top of the Tor. If art is more your thing, take a trip to Montacute House. The country manor from 1601 is filled with Tudor art and surrounded by stunning gardens.
Glastonbury isn’t just about the music. The rolling hills, beautiful architecture and historic abbeys make this town a must-see when you’re in Somerset. Bring man’s best friend along with you to a pet-friendly cottage and explore the church ruins at the top of Glastonbury Tor. You’ll be rewarded for your hard work with the spectacular views.
Or, enjoy a slice of history at Glastonbury Abbey, the fabled remains of a monastery with links to King Arthur and Guinevere. Don’t worry, there’s plenty to keep the kids busy in Somerset too. Spend the day at Brean Theme Park, a seaside amusement park, complete with a water park and golf course. Animal Farm Adventure Park is another great stop for the little ones, with goats, donkeys and llamas to pet alongside plenty of ball pools and slides. If all else fails, there’s always the beach. Somerset has a number of golden sandy beaches to choose from. Recreate childhood holidays at Weston-super-Mare, playing in the sands and spending long afternoons on the pier.
