Make a holiday cottage in Somerset your home away from home

Few places in the UK are as diverse as Somerset. The south-western county encompasses everything from stretches of beautiful coastline and unspoilt moorland, to dynamic seaside cities and regal Georgian-era spa towns. In fact, there are so many places to explore that visitors can enjoy multiple holidays to the region and see something new each time. Outdoor adventurers will enjoy getting in touch with nature with a stay in Exmoor National Park holiday homes, whilst history and culture buffs may prefer a stay in Bath. Holidaymakers seeking a well-rounded city break destination need look no further than the beautiful city of Bristol.

HomeAway has an incredible selection of holiday cottages in Somerset to choose from. Rentals are available for tourists of all budget ranges. Somerset holiday cottages start at under £200 per week for basic accommodation. Most holiday homes range from £350 - £500 per week and have one to three bedrooms. All rentals come fully furnished to a high standard and have everything a visitor needs to feel right at home. Select cottages offer additional amenities such as a pool and internet access, and some are just steps from the beach.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Exmoor National Park is a veritable playground for nature lovers and a popular location for Somerset holiday homes. Hundreds of miles of trails ideal for walking, cycling, and horse riding are contained within its boundaries. The park also contains lakes well suited for canoeing and rivers that are excellent for kayaking. Kayakers can also head to the River Avon on the outskirts of Bristol. The region also lays claim to an enviable stretch of coastline. Visitors looking for the seaside might choose holiday homes in Minehead or a cottage with a sea view in Burnham on Sea.

-Family attractions: The city of Bristol has the largest concentration of family-friendly attractions in the area. Visitors can take their kids on a fun and educational ride down the River Avon with Bristol Ferry Company. The Bristol Aquarium is another hit with children and offers live exhibits of a range of underwater creatures, including sharks and seahorses. Just outside of town, the Avon Valley Adventure Wildlife Park is a fun attraction appealing to visitors of all ages. Those staying in a Somerset holiday cottage closer to the coast can visit Butlins in Minehead. The holiday park and resort has a waterpark, fairgrounds, and plenty of play areas for kids.

-Historic sites: Bath, with its beautiful Georgian-era architecture, is rich with historic sites. At the centre of town is the beautiful Bath Abbey, and next door are exquisite Roman Baths, which solidified Bath as a spa town. Another historic site worth visiting in town is the Royal Crescent. The luxury hotel and spa is a stunning example of Georgian architecture and once consisted of holiday homes for the well-to-do of the Georgian-era. Literary buffs will want to visit the Jane Austen Centre. The famous author called Bath her home in the early 19th century and the centre has a wonderful exhibit on her life in Bath and how it influenced her writing.

-Food and drink: Somerset is full of excellent pubs, cafés, and restaurants. Some of the more notable local products include cider, cheddar cheese, goat cheeses, and strawberries. Quaint and charming eateries can be found in market towns across Somerset, including Langport, Highbridge, Axbridge, and Crewkerne.

Weather in Somerset

The weather varies around Somerset, but is characterised overall by warm summers and relatively chilly winters. Rain is prevalent throughout the year, but is heaviest between October and January. High temperatures remain above 15°C from May through October, which marks the high season for tourists. The warmest months are July and August, with average daily highs of 22°C.

Travel to Somerset

Larger cities and popular tourist areas like Bristol and Bath can easily be reached by train. When travelling to more remote areas, such as Exmoor National Park, it is best to take a car. The M5 runs through much of Somerset and several A-roads connect the more popular villages and towns. Visitors can also fly into Bristol Airport and hire a car in order to reach their final destination.

Good communication and directions were sent via email before arrival. The owner met my parents on arrival showing them around and left some loungers to sit in the garden to soak up the Somerset sun. The barn was well equipped, spotlessly clean and tidy. This is a credit to the owners. The view from the garden looks over the Blackdown hills to the Wellington Monument and is a totally relaxing place to stay. Its only a few minutes drive from Wellington town centre and about 20 minutes to Taunton. This was a perfect location for us and we enjoyed our stay. We would totally recommend this barn it was perfect for 4 adults. One bedroom with ensuite and the other bedroom had two single beds that were made into a king size bed with the bathroom outside. The upstairs is open plan has two very comfortable leather settees in the lounge area with two patio doors opening up onto the garden. The kitchen/dining area had everything you needed. Thank you Philip and Sarah we hope to return in the near future. 🤗
