Spend The Summer In Somerset

Looking for somewhere to take the family on holiday this year? Then how about making the trip to Somerset, it’s so far south that the days are warmer down there, there’s glorious beaches for mum to lay out on and the kids to splash around in the sea, the coastline and countryside are spectacular, and the whole place seeps of history.

There’s all sorts of fun you can have in this part of the west country, if it’s summertime when you plan to visit then check out the caravan and campsites in Exmoor and Glastonbury, Minehead, Cheddar and Weston-super-Mare, either take your own touring caravan or tent with you, or book a static one in the holiday park.

If that’s not your idea of a great time then consider a holiday where you get to stay on a real life farm, with the farmer and his family too! This is a great experience for the youngsters and an alternative to a B&B option. Go for long country walks and help feed and take care of all the animals.

For those who prefer a bit more luxury on their holiday there’s a wide range of hotels on offer either with sea views, located right in the heart of town, or deep in the countryside. 2, 3, 4, and 5 star hotels in Weston-super-Mare, Wells, Taunton, Yeovil or Exmoor have a range of facilities and services for guests, depending on how much you want to pay and where you want to be based you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.

Somerset gives the chance to stay in hotels in buildings that used to be farmhouses or country inn’s, some of which date back centuries and have now been converted. With tons of character and atmosphere these are the kinds of hotels people like to book their wedding reception at, or an important business meeting where the idea is to impress. Expect four poster beds, your meals cooked on traditional aga’s or wood burners and beautiful gardens to admire.

Kids love the beach and Minehead is popular with families for the facilities it has to offer. Traditional attractions like building sandcastles and donkey rides are enjoyable for young children and can still be found in this part of the world. The beach goes on for miles and the promenade has cafes, pubs and restaurants, stop for delicious fish and chips covered in salt and vinegar. There’s a small steam train and Butlins holiday camp nearby if you fancy it, also just a short distance away are coastal walkways and views of the British Channel and Wales.
