    Things to do

    -Outdoor activities: This part of Somerset is a lovely place to explore. Visitors come here to walk, cycle, and horse ride along quiet country roads and public paths. The Mendip Hills are located just 15 miles away and offer excellent footpaths through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Plenty of native wildlife call the hills home, and visitors will also be able to see stunning limestone cliffs, rocky outcrops, and fields of wildflowers.

    -Family attractions: The East Somerset Railway, originating in Shepton Mallet, is a must for families visiting from April to October. During this time, a steam train runs from here through to the Mendip Hills and the journey is a wonderful way to spend the day. It is hugely popular with visitors in holiday homes in Shepton Mallet, Yeovil, and the general Taunton area. Also in the area is the Haynes International Motor Museum. Located in Yeovil, the museum is home to over 400 cars and bikes ranging from the antique to the exotic.

    -Golf: Wheathill Golf Club is a short drive from many holiday rentals in Castle Cary and is very approachable for novice golfers. The club offers equipment hire in addition to a beautiful 18-hole course. A little further in Yeovil, the Yeovil Golf Club has two 18-hole courses to choose from catering to golfers of all ability levels.

    -Culture: Glastonbury, one of the UK's most famous festivals, is held each summer not far from Castle Cary – but while it attracts world-class musicians, camping's not always as comfy as having a holiday home to return to! Another fun festival in the area is the Royal Bath and West Show, a major event that celebrates rural life with 600 trade stands, livestock shows, and cider and cheese awards.
