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!
