The West Country / Somerset region
Somerset is famous for the sheer wealth of epic scenery including beautiful countryside and dramatic coastline as well as many historic places such as abbeys, castles, museums, classic English houses and stunning gardens deep in the heart of and littered throughout this glorious County.
If that is not enough numerous opportunities abound to occupy your time such as rambling, cycling, horse riding, fishing - most things that you can think of you can find it here plus more.
We have National Nature Reserve wetlands near at hand, and in complete contrast Gorge's with both woodland walks and breathtaking views, even a beach that is a site of Special Scientific Interest with its spectacular rock formations and fossils, indeed, a whole myriad of other interesting and absorbing things to do and see!

the Glastonbury Pilgramage in June,
the world famous Glastonbury Festival in Pilton,
the Glastonbury Extravaganza set in the beautiful grounds of Glastonbury Abbey in August.
the Somerset Carnivals in early to mid November drawing crowds from all over the country,
and last but not least, right on the cottage's doorstep, the world famous Glastonbury Tor.

We have been to Glastonbury many times & have camped on the other side of town. For this trip our son was only 13months old & I was 7 months pregnant so we decided to find alternative accomadation.. what a find this was!
Jim & Julie & Jims brother Andy were all so welcoming, the cottage itself had everything we needed and we knew all we needed to do was ask if we needed anything else.
The Tor is right in front of the door to the cottage but the best view is from the bedroom where a charming window frames it perfectly.
We highly recomend this to couples, couples with kids, couples with friends... its a great place to stay, we will be back :)
