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.

    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).
