Find cottages in Somerset

At the heart of the West Country, Somerset''s rolling hills, deep gorges and flowing rivers tell the tales of myths and legends.

From castles, abbeys and museums, to classic English houses and gardens, this is rural England at its best, and with such a wide range of things to see and do, a cottage holiday here provides the perfect base from which to explore the area.

Begin your visit to Somerset by exploring some of the area''s rich heritage, starting off with the enigmatic Glastonbury Tor. Sitting high above the land like a beacon, it holds stories of the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. At the base of the Tor lie the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, set in 36 acres of beautiful parkland and ponds it''s the perfect destination for a family day out. There''s an abundance of historical places in the region so take the time to explore as many as possible, especially Wells Cathedral and the Roman Baths and its museum.

If you can tear yourself away from exploring Somerset''s past there’s a lot more to explore. Longleat Safari Park is just one of the many animal attractions in the area, but you can also get up close and personal with magnificent shire horses birds of prey and marine life.

From the open expanses of gardens and ancient oak woodlands to sparkling rivers and sandy beaches, Somerset is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. There are some great natural wonders to explore and with its steep inclines, dramatic peaks and amazing views, Cheddar Gorge makes an ideal location for walkers, climbers, cavers and sightseers alike. Lazy afternoon picnics can be enjoyed, and there''s a superb selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes cooking up fresh local produce so you can take a night off from cooking. You could even make a night of it and go see a show at the 17th century Theatre Royal in Bath.

    Ref: EXT


    Royal Crescent Apartment has the best address in Bath. It occupies the ground floor of one of the splendid Georgian houses on this architectural marvel that is known as the Royal Crescent. It is elegantly furnished throughout, with antiques and furnishings in keeping with the period, and has original features, a Georgian fireplace and windows, decorative ceilings and cornices, and a beautiful period conservatory which opens onto a small private terrace. The drawing room is at the front of the Crescent and overlooks the Royal Victoria Park, and guests have a key to the exclusive Crescent lawn. Building of Royal Crescent began in 1767 and was completed by 1775. Purchasers of the house-plot leases had to conform to Wood’s exterior design, which also dictated the principal floor levels, but were free to lay out the interiors as they wished. This has resulted in no two houses being the same. Originally, some of the houses were let out for the season, to socially acceptable people only, by the floor or house. Visitors would sometimes arrive with their whole household, including furniture, linen, carpets and all the necessities of home. Other houses were occupied by one family permanently. There have been many famous occupants of Royal Crescent, including Sir Isaac Pitman (1837-1897) who produced the famous shorthand system that is linked with his name, Marie Therese Princesse de Lamballe (1749-1792) who was a friend and lady-in-waiting to Queen Marie Antoinette, Admiral Sir William Hargood (1762-1839) who retired to Bath after a distinguished naval career and who was a captain commanding the Belleisle during the time of Trafalgar, and George Saintsbury (1846-1933) who was the most influential literary critic of his time. At the end of the Crescent at number one, is a museum run by The Bath Preservation Trust, sharing what a Georgian House would have been like in the Georgian era.
    Bath is a small but cosmopolitan city, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set within the rolling hills of beautiful scenery, and at the southern tip of the Cotswolds, it has much to offer the visitor. Admire the striking architecture of the sweeping Georgian crescents, the majestic Abbey, Roman Baths, The Pump Room, the Theatre Royal, Victoria Park, Pulteney Bridge, The Circus and the Fashion Museum. It has a lively cultural scene with several festivals and all kinds of shows, concerts and exhibitions filling up the events calendar. Being a university town, it also has a vibrant nightlife, and the dining scene equals that of almost any other British city. Bath has become the perfect base from which to explore our English history. There are many nearby historical sites, all within 60 minutes of Bath, including Stonehenge, the enormous stone circle at Avebury, the beautiful cathedral at Wells, the mysteries of Glastonbury, the National Trust village of Lacock, the perfect Cotswold village of Castle Combe, the Cheddar Gorge and Longleat, the spectacular home of the Marquis of Bath. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
