The West Country region

Somerset (or the land of the Summer people as it used to be known), is famous for the sheer wealth of diverse scenery from wetland to hills, beautiful rolling countryside and dramatic coastline and many historic places such as abbeys, castles, museums, classic English houses and stunning gardens throughout this glorious County.

Shapwick and Westhay Nature Reserve wetlands are nearby, famous for the starling spectacular in the autumn, and in complete contrast to the craggy glory of Cheddar Gorge with rock climbing, walks and breathtaking views. We have beaches and estuaries that are sites of Special Scientific Interest and a whole myriad of other interesting and absorbing things to do and see!

If that is not enough numerous opportunities abound to occupy your time such as rambling, cycling, horse riding, fishing, golf - most things that you can think of you can find it here plus more.

Last but by no means least there is plenty of shopping to be done at Clarks Village Outlet in Street as well as the beautiful city of Wells and the eclectic mix of shops in Glastonbury.


The Glastonbury area plays host to numerous local festivals and activities which thrive throughout the year. These include;

The Glastonbury Christian Pilgramages in June, Various 'Alternative' celebrations such as Beltane, Goddess Festival and Solstice celebrations to name but a few.

The Glastonbury Festival held just 2 miles away at Pilton (last weekend of June)

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, dominating the landscape around and a must climb activity which is free is Glastonbury Tor.

"Comfortable and Clean in a good location for exploring Somerset"

Spent 5 nights in Lilac cottage in July 13 during very hot weather and the house was clean, comfortable and thankfully nice and cool during the heatwave. The cottage is a converted outbuilding/barn attached to the owners house. It had everything we needed for our stay with the exception of a good internet connection/wifi-patchy at best (not totally unexpected in rural areas). It's on a main road between Glastonbury and Shepton but is well set back and the thick walls and double glazing mean it's not noisy inside. Also the twin room is at the rear so this was very quite for the kids. The family were friendly and helpful and were very happy to let our 2 boys use the play equipment in their garden. The quite village pub next door served good basic pub grub and other than Morris dancers one evening was not noisy in any fashion. We enjoyed Glastonbury, Wells and a trip up to Bristol but our highlight was the Greenbank Lido in Street. A must on a hot day and a beautiful setting with something for all ages. Would deter visitors from Wooky Hole as over priced and tacky(nearly £60 for a family of 4). Some nice countryside walks nearby and overall a very nice stay.
