The Somerset region

Bath is twenty miles away. With Roman Baths, Abbey, Holbein and Fashion Museums plus stunning Georgian architecture at every turn, Bath has much to offer the West Country visitor. The more urban Bristol is no less interesting. Take a walk along the

waterfront lined with cafés and bars and visit the Arnofini for the latest in contemporary Art.

Other places of interest include Longleat Safari Park, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Caves and many National Trust properties including Stourhead and Barrington Court. Hauser & Wirth Somerset, an international art gallery, opens in Bruton, summer 2014.

The nearest seaside town to Kingdom Cottage is Weston-Super-Mare which has an old world charm with a Victorian promenade, Grand Pier and where there are still donkey rides along the sandy beach. Just don't expect blue sea!

The Dorset Coast is well within reach for a day's outing.

Wells

A walk to the end of the village will reward the visitor with a view of Biddlecombe, a wooded valley with a meandering stream that flows down to feed the pools in the Bishops Palace. There are plenty of other walks to enjoy here too: take the path that leads across the fields to Wells or follow the stream and find the Buddle House which was once used for lead mining.

The city of Wells is two miles away, with its magnificent Cathedral and the delightful moated Bishops Palace and gardens. The city has a market on Wednesday and Saturday and a choice of pubs and restaurants for wining and dining.

For a more 'alternative' shopping experience Glastonbury is the place to visit. Now known worldwide for its Festival, Glastonbury is also home to the Rural Life Museum and Abbey and a visit would not be complete without a walk up the Tor for panoramic views of the Somerset Levels. During the winter months the nature reserves on The Levels are where great flocks of starlings gather to roost: a sight that, once seen, is never forgotten.

Other local towns include Frome, with many independent shops and cafes, and Street, famous for Clarks shoes and its retail outlet Clarks Village.

For those who like walking there are plenty of trails and pathways to be explored on The Mendips and at various RSPB reserves in the area.

There are two golf courses nearby, an indoor swimming pool in Wells and a lovely open air pool in Street.
