The following ideas for days out in Somerset came about thanks to a trip made possible by Boutique Retreats (a gifted stay).
There’s something about England’s South West that I find hard to resist, especially once those dark nights start to creep in.
As we begin to wake up to frost laced gardens and the rattle of tired radiators, I begin to think of heading some place else – driving past the pretty villages of the Cotswolds, through rural Wiltshire and down into the rolling hills of Somerset.
Each time I visit I know I’ll discover a new sleepy village filled with muddy wellies and market stalls overflowing with cheese, bread and cream. And, if I get bored of that? Then I needn’t travel far to uncover creative and gallery-filled towns that are (thankfully) free of those London price tags.
In fact – and despite regularly visiting the South West – in terms of things to do in Somerset, I’m still steadily working my way through a very long list.
Having just returned from yet another wintery trip south, I wanted to put together some ideas for days out in Somerset: reviewing the magical, beautiful and homely spots I’ve visited.
I hope you’ll find it helpful when planning your own adventure through what is (officially) my favourite corner of the UK.
