Somerset

Somerset’s attractions seem endless. Majestic gorges, rolling hills and endless wetlands. This southwest county has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty again and again. Walkers love following hedgerow trails to country pubs in the rolling Blackdown Hills. In the Quantock Hills you can freewheel into 'coombe' valleys on your mountain bike. Back in civilisation there are Saxon market towns nestled on riverbanks and Bristol Channel beaches packed with Victorian seaside charm, ideal for a family day out. Find your inner hippy in Glastonbury's spiritual shops and rock up to Pilton for the music festival.
