Somerset is England’s farm, an agricultural region known for its Cheddar cheese and cider. It receives fewer visitors than its westerly neighbours, and there are hidden delights to be found in this area. The area is perfect for cycling with a network of country lanes and fewer slopes than the more rugged west. Bath has always been a fashionable resort, noted for its curative springs for centuries. The town’s beginnings are prehistoric; it was an important spa for the Romans and a fashionable resort in the 18th century.
