Embedded at the heart of West Country, Somerset is the ideal location for a seaside holiday. Being home to some stunning cosy coastal cottages, they act as the perfect base from which to explore the magnificent rolling hills, quaint seaside fishing villages and all the great attractions on offer in the area.
A seaside cottage in Watchet offers a friendly scenic coastal town with a busy marina, ancient port and lots of small charming houses, shops and cafes waiting to be explored. There’s great access to some walks along the wonderful coast line and through the lovely summerset countryside including the popular Coleridge Way. Enjoy a day trip into the fantastic Exmoor National Park, and at the end of the day relax and unwind on secluded beaches which are perfect fossil hunting hot spots.
Lying where the North Somerset Coast meets the splendour of the Exmoor National Park, Minehead acts as the perfect setting for a stay in a cottage by the sea. It’s great for exploring both the pretty harbour towns, wide sandy beaches and the stunning moorland countryside close by. For a more restful day, experience a leisurely boat cruise, fishing trip or take a stroll along many of the gorgeous coastal paths.
For a family favourite, a sea view cottage in Weston-Super-Mare is a must. A typical bucket and spade holiday can be enjoyed along the miles of clean sandy beaches, or venture into pretty seaside resort for a cool glass of Somerset cider whilst the kids enjoy a locally made ice cream. Get active and seek out the wind and water sports and donkey rides on the beach or take a walk along the pier and let the kids get caught up in the go-karts, mazes and fun rides.
Continue to explore the great wonders of Somerset at Porlock or Burnham-on-sea. Two seaside towns featuring some more of Somerset’s unspoiled coastal beauty. Enjoy the friendly pubs, quaint tearooms and fine restaurants after a lovely walk taking in the amazing views over the British Channel.
