The West Country region

The limestone Mendip Hills rise up from the Somerset Levels, giving spectacular views across the peat moors as far as Exmoor , the sea and the Welsh hills beyond. The hills provide an underground network of caves and potholes , and , on the surface, wonderful walking beloved by visitors. The peat moors were home to ancient civiisations and are now the home to thousands of wild birds in the many nature reserves.

History tells a great story in Somerset, starting from early man, with many archeological sites, tthe start of Chrstianity at Glastonbury, through to the mystical legends of King Arthur, and his knights. The Roman and Georgian influence at Bath gives us many fine buildings while the cathedrals , abbeys and castles of Medieval times are some of the most visited places in the county.

The sea influence gave Somerset its warm pleasant climate so stock farming led to the sheepskin industries, some now defunct, and to cheese making, which still thrives. Strawberries grow on the slopes of the Mendips and remain a substantial source of income.

Because of its attractive nature, large houses were built in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, many now are National Trust properties with interesting gardens open to the public.

Cheddar

Draycott is the centre of the strawberry growing industry, with footpaths in all directions for easy walking as well as the long distance path the West Mendip Way which passes through. There are many local events such as the Strawberry Fayre held in June, Priddy Sheep Fair and Gypsy Horse Fair in August and the Somerset Carnivals held in November. The Bath and West of England Showground is home to many regional events and the attractions at Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole are open all year as are many others.

"Great home and location"

Impressive looking converted barn with balcony which we enjoyed in the morning and evening! We were lucky with weather so enjoyed many of the walks situated nearby and visited Wells which was gorgeous. I'd advise visiting the Saturday market in Wells which sell more than just local produce - jewelry, clothes, books and lots of delicious smelling food stalls. In terms of location - wonderful. The barn itself although light and welcoming, was in need of a good clean. It didn't ruin our experience but was certainly a disappointment. Apart from that, I'd recommend a visit.
