England’s smallest city. Britain’s biggest gorge. Europe’s most famous festival. Somerset caters from the very big to the very small. If you’ve already packed your hiking boots, make the Mendip Hills your first stop, and don’t forget the binoculars. Birdwatching here is fantastic. After more family fun, head to Cheddar Gorge. Explore the caves and take part in their Crystal Quest. Stay in any of our hotels in Somerset, and you’ll be close to all the action. And if you’re lucky and get tickets, enjoy Glastonbury. Jealous? Us? Never.
Book hotels in Somerset
Book a hotel in Somerset and find out that Glastonbury’s more than a festival. Start by climbing the Tor, a place of spiritual significance rumoured to be home to the Holy Grail. It’s fun to entertain these speculations for the 40 minutes it’ll take you to walk there from our Glastonbury Hotel. After your ramble, drive to Wells, the smallest city in England. The cathedral is well worth a look, but you must save time for Bishops Palace. Got good weather? Get outdoors. There’s plenty to see. If you like climbing trees, you’re spoiled for choice. Children are given small blackboards to draw on when they feel the urge. Grab dinner at one of the independent restaurants in town, before the 35-minute drive to our Yeovil Podimore Hotel.
Things to do in Somerset
Somerset is famed for its natural beauty. If you want something short and sweet, or have children with you, visit Cheddar Gorge. Visit the caves, or take the tour bus which weaves in and around Britain’s biggest gorge. If you feel daring, why not try rock climbing? You’ll sleep well tonight at our Glastonbury Hotel which is 14.6 miles away. If you’re a serious walker, take a hike over the Mendip Hills. For your efforts, you’ll be blessed with a stunning panorama. Our Portishead Hotel is 19.4 miles from the Banwell Castle starting point, which itself is quite a spectacle.
