Somerset FAQs

Lovers of the outdoors are spoiled in Somerset, with the Mendip Hills, the Tarr Steps, Exmoor and the Quantock Hills promising panoramic views and stunning walking trails. 

Somerset also has around 50 miles of coastline, and its golden beaches, rocky coves and majestic cliffs are just as enjoyable in winter as they are in summer. Brean Beach near Burnham-on-Sea is dog-friendly all year and has one of the longest stretches of sand in Europe, or try Kilve Beach for fossil hunting in the heart of the Quantocks. 

Culture lovers should head to Bath for Roman and Georgian history in abundance, alongside some of the best shopping and restaurants in the South West. For classic British cuisine with a modern twist, make a reservation at The Olive Tree, Bath’s only Michelin-starred restaurant.

Known for its delicious cheese and cider, there are farm shops, distilleries and delis around every corner in Somerset. Bruton makes a great day-trip destination, where you can sample local produce at the Godminster Cheese shop before discovering the popular Hauser & Wirth gallery for a culture-filled afternoon. 

If you have children in tow, don’t miss Cheddar Gorge or the Wookey Hole Caves for memorable days out, or burn off some energy by climbing Glastonbury Tor.

 

Somerset is home to a whole range of eateries, from fine dining and Michelin-star restaurants to traditional pubs and high quality farm shops and cafés. 

The Roth Bar & Grill and At the Chapel in Bruton are great for their buzzing atmospheres and stylish dishes. Exmoor is bursting with local favourites like Farthings Farm Shop and Woods Bar and Restaurant in Dulverton, along with The Masons Arms in Knowstone - a Michelin-starred 13th Century Inn.

If a day trip to Bath is on the cards, there are endless options for refuelling in between shopping and sightseeing. The tasting menu by Gordon Jones is perfect for a lunch or dinner-time treat, and we’d recommend Cappadocia or Sotto Sotto for unforgettable Mediterranean cuisine. 

 

Lying on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills, the four mile walking route around Cheddar Gorge is truly spectacular. With limestone cliffs, ancient woodland, hidden caves and panoramic views, it’s a great way to experience Somerset’s rich geology. 

The West Somerset Coast Path offers spectacular views across coast and countryside. At about 25 miles in length, it passes through the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and alongside the fossil-rich Jurassic coastline. 

Exmoor is bursting with walking routes for all ages and abilities, with endless footpaths and bridleways slicing through the heather moorland. On the southern edge of Exmoor, around four miles from Dulverton, the legendary Tarr Steps are one of Somerset’s hidden gems. There’s a lovely seven mile walking route that meanders along the river, through Withypool and back to the Tarr Steps. Voted one of the best wild swimming locations in the UK, it’s a beautiful spot for cooling off on summer days.

Somerset is best known for its beautiful countryside, walking trails, agricultural heritage and high quality local produce, such as cheddar cheese and cider. Home to Cheddar Gorge, the Wookey Hole Caves and the city of Bath, it’s the ideal holiday destination for history and culture enthusiasts. It’s also the location of the world famous Glastonbury Festival, which hosts music, dance, comedy and theatre acts at Worthy Farm in Pilton.

Somerset is about 150 miles from London by road and takes around three hours in the car. You can also travel by train from London to Somerset, with the journey from London Paddington to Bath Spa taking just under an hour and a half.

Bath is the largest city in Somerset, with a population of over 100,000. It’s renowned for its beautiful Georgian architecture and Roman-built baths. The ideal destination for a day trip, join a walking tour and discover Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, Pulteney Bridge, The Circus and of course, the Roman Baths. Somerset’s second city is Wells, which is home to the breath-taking Wells Cathedral.
