Somerset is a peaceful south westerly county with a mixture of coastal charm and country living. It is full of quaint villages and market towns but within easy reach of the popular cities of Bristol, Bath and Exeter for those who prefer more of a city feel. The area is famous for its wonderful produce, including the scrumptious Cheddar Cheese and Cider, but it is also home to lots of fantastic places to visit, the most famous of which has to be Cheddar Gorge, the largest gorge in the UK. Don’t forget Glastonbury Tor and Wookey Hole, as well as Wells Cathedral and Dunster Castle. The area also offers lots of activities for children such as petting farms and butterfly houses to keep them entertained and you can’t beat Exmoor National Park for dog walking as well as the amazing beaches such as Weston-Super-Mare and Minehead for family days out.
