Make a holiday cottage in Taunton your home away from home

Taunton is one of the most vibrant towns in Somerset. Located between Exeter and Bristol, it offers a great alternative to either of those busy cities, although HomeAway offers holiday apartments in Bristol and Exeter if a city location is preferred. Located close to the M5, Taunton is very well connected and offers all the amenities of a modern town. Surrounded by golf courses and less than 30 minutes away from the attractions of Exmoor National Park, it naturally attracts visitors to enjoy outdoor activities. There are also several great places to take children in the area, including fascinating museums, beautiful gardens, and an open-air pool.

HomeAway has a good selection of holiday cottages in Taunton for visitors to choose from. Rentals start at less than £250 per week for budget accommodation and go all the way up to £8,000 per week for sprawling estates. They generally range from one- to three-bedroomed properties and all come fully furnished. Some of the more popular amenities offered by holiday cottages in Taunton include swimming pools, BBQ equipment, and internet access.

Things to do

-Golf: There are three golf clubs either within Taunton or on the outskirts of Taunton. The closest is Vivary Park Golf Course, which is a five-minute walk from the centre of town. There is a flat 18-hole parkland course here that is casual and well suited for beginners. Taunton Vale Golf Club is a little further from the centre of town and offers two courses. The 18-hole course will challenge even the most experienced golfer, whilst the 9-hole course is an excellent place to practice. Founded in 1892, the Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club is the oldest club in the region and has a beautiful 18-hole course featuring varied terrain. It is popular throughout the region, particularly with people staying in holiday homes in Exeter and its surrounds.

-Food and drink: Taunton has a number of excellent pubs and restaurants. The Willow Tree and the Royal Oak are two of the most highly rated pubs in town and will not disappoint. In addition, Sheppy's Farm & Cider Centre just outside of Taunton is an excellent place to sample locally made cider – and the family-friendly farm has a nice gift shop and museum, too.

-Family attractions: The Museum of Somerset is within easy reach of families staying in a Taunton holiday cottage. This fascinating attraction has everything from dinosaur bones to ancient Roman coins that have all been uncovered in Somerset. Hestercombe Gardens is another great place to take kids. It boasts 50 acres of land encompassing lakes, woodland areas, and plenty of trails to explore. In the summer months, families can head to the Wiveliscombe Open-Air Pool.

-Outdoor activities: Somerset is a beautiful part of the country with numerous country roads and public paths for outdoor lovers to explore. Those staying in a Taunton holiday barn can also make the short drive to Exmoor National Park. The park is full of stunning moorland and is a good place for walking, cycling, horse riding, and wildlife watching.

Weather in Taunton

Visitors staying in a Taunton holiday home will experience the most pleasant weather from May to September. The warmest temperatures of the year come in July and August, when highs reach 19°C. In the winter daily highs hover around 7°C and night time temperatures can dip below freezing on occasion. The wettest months of the year are October to December.

Lovely cottage in quiet area

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage in a beautiful village in Somerset. For us it was close to family we were visiting but it is close to many pretty places. It really is a Home from Home with so much provided. We usually travel with all the basics but there is no need. There was a hamper of goodies and sausages, bacon etc in the fridge and even some toiletries in the bathroom in case anything had been forgotten. The cottage is very comfortable and was warm on arrival, which was late, so that was really appreciated. TV and Wifi great. Our two dogs and cat were welcome which we really appreciate. With its own entrance and drive, it is very private. There are lovely walks around the village and lanes. Outside space for eating when weather permits. The owner, Sheila, is very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely stay again when visiting our family. Thank you. Five stars.

This is an excellent property for a family, a large house in extensive grounds, in a great region.

4 of 5
We celebrated an eightieth birthday, eleven adults, four great grandchildren and three dogs. Hearty eating, Aga roasts, big breakfasts and plenty of celebratory drinks. The house was large enough for everyone to have space but also to gather all in one room for meals. The grounds are interesting and the location is close to the sea and countryside, with the heart of Exmoor a short drive away. Tracy made it easy and we wanted for nothing. It is an excellent hose for a big gathering.
