Children's playground within walking distance and the pubs and restaurants are all child friendly, providing a warm welcome. Somerset is a county rich in farmland and produce - Cheddar cheese is one famous natural product and Wells Cathedral is famous for brass rubbings and the swans who feed at the ringing of a bell. Wookey Hole Caves nearby and Cheddar Gorge are both naturally formed places of interest and the Outlet Village at Street is perfect for a shopping trip for bargain hunters. Glastonbury and Salisbury offer an interesting day out and Stonehenge is about 40 minutes away.
