Chard

The highest town in Somerset, Chard lies in a peaceful corner of south Somerset, surrounded by stunning countryside. It''s the perfect place to recharge your batteries on a relaxing short break away or longer stay and is ideal for families.

You can get active with a trip to the largest gorge in Britain, namely Cheddar Gorge. Just a short drive from Chard, the 450-foot cliffs and caverns are a sight you will never forget! Don''t miss the magical displays at Cox''s Cave, and let the children enjoy the opportunity to take part in ''Crystal Quest'', a thrilling fantasy adventure for all ages. Adrenaline junkies can try adventure caving or rock climbing at the activity centre, or why not hop on board the open-top bus tour with the family?

There are plenty of other attractions for all the family to enjoy here too; you''re just a short drive from Brean Leisure Park with its rollercoasters, rides and amusements for all ages, or head for the local flight museum or Haynes International Motor Museum. Noah''s Ark Zoo Farm is the perfect place to spot tigers, giraffes and elephants whilst the kids learn about conservation.

You can easily prepare a delicious meal back at your cottage, but if you want to treat yourselves to a meal out in Chard, you''ll find cosy country inns and relaxed cafes side by side with steak houses and fine dining establishments, and most restaurants have a children''s menu.

So, why not come and see all that south Somerset has to offer; start your search for holiday cottages in Chard today!

    National Trust Holiday Cottage

    A superb location in the grounds of the National Trust at Barrington Court House and Gardens, in South Somerset, near Ilminster. This delightful, two storey, spacious apartment offers a unique holiday home being on this wonderful estate with its heritage and gardens. Situated in the red brick Strode House, built in 1674 by William Strode II, as a grand stable to the old manor house which is next door, and built in 1550, it offers a stunning background to the beautiful gardens on this estate. In 1745 the estate passed out of the hands of the Strode family and by the 1890s was in decline, until Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley, a founder member of the National Trust, recommended to the trust that they should acquire it and preserve it for the future. In 1920 Colonel Arthur Lyle (a director of Abram Lyle and Sons, that would later merge with Henry Tate and Sons, to form the famous sugar refining company Tate and Lyle), took a 99 year lease and took steps to create a model estate. The Court, Strode House and the surrounding landscape were remodelled and in 1991, the management of the estate returned back to the fold of the National Trust. Strode House itself now houses the National Trust restaurant and apartments, of which this is one, and from where you can explore these delightful gardens, and of course visit the magnificent Elizabethan house of Barrington Court.
    It is also in a great location, with access to many other National Trust properties within South Somerset, including Montacute House and Gardens, Priest’s House, Stoke-sub-Hamden Priory and Tintinhull House, and in Dorset, Forde Abbey and Gardens. For family attractions visit the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, the fascinating Classic car collection at the Haynes Motor Museum, and within an easy drive, visitors can be enjoying the south coast World Heritage Jurassic Coast from Lyme Regis, all the way to Weymouth and Portland. Inland you can spend days visiting Clarks Factory Village at Street, Wells Cathedral and Bishops’ Palace, Cheddar Gorge and Caves, Wookey Hole Caves, the ageless town of Glastonbury, and on to the historic city of Bath with its many attractions. You will certainly have a very diverse number of options to enjoy a truly memorable holiday. Shop 1/2 mile, pub 3/4 mile, restaurant on site (50 yards).
